31 weeks

Oh these are so cute!! If I do say so myself. It was time for a change of scenery, so we took these in another nice spot in our house.
So lately I have been having some major pressure in my pelvis and hips. Its not really pleasant. haha. Also I have noticed an increase in leg cramping and muscle cramping. I am trying to drink more water thinking perhaps that I am getting slightly dehydrated, but who really knows. I have still been trying to walk and do all the things I am supposed to be doing to keep myself as healthy as possible.
One other baby related update,I did attend my first baby related class. A nice one night class on the benefits of breastfeeding. I have done lots of reading on the whole process and really did not learn anything new, but it was helpful to see the videos of the different holds and how the proper latch is achieved. The only issue I had with the class was that I was hoping there would be a little more reassuring information on mothers who want to breastfeed but who have, for any reason, a cesarean section. I know that perseverence is the a key to make nursing work, however I cannot help feeling nervous as the days get closer. I also cannot stop the feeling that I will probably have a cesarean. I just want to keep myself in as realistic a mindset as possible. As an overweight woman who is starting to show signs of high blood pressure, the possibility of that outcome is becoming greater and greater. At the end of the day, whatever is necessary for the healthy delivery of my little monkey is the best decision. I would never want to put my own thoughts or desires ahead of the proper and most beneficial delivery option.
Josh is slightly upset ( as am I) that his Daddy Boot Camp class was cancelled. I was really looking forward to him learning the ins and outs of becoming a dad. I guess he will just have to learn as we go. We still have a long long one day birthing class ahead of ourselves....and we will have to see how that goes...
Anyway, that seems to be all I got for updates this week...Monday starts my twice weekly doctors appointments and I am sure there will be lots and lots to tell after that. Until then, happy reading, and as always, comments are gladly accepted, unless you're a douche...then they are just deleted.
