34 week checkup

Okay, so the countdown has begun... only 6 more weeks! I'm measuring fine, and Connor is head down, for the moment. BUT... my resting pulse is a little elevated and so is Connor's; his was around 185 (about 20 BPM higher than normal), which means I'm too stressed out! This past week has been really hectic with Christmas, my sister moving in (LOTS of rearranging, cleaning, reorganizing, etc.), and now the twins' birthday coming up (party tomorrow). Add to that the fact that my kids have all been home with me for over a week (no rest for the weary!), and it's no wonder I'm stressed!!!

So our midwife has ordered me to "rest more" and "put my feet up", whatever the hell THAT is! I made sure Drew heard her say that, though, so there's no *confusion* about "using pregnancy as an excuse to be lazy" (AHEM!). So I'm trying. It will be easier after this party tomorrow, since we are still cleaning up Christmas messes and trying to get the house presentable at the same time. Oh, and I have to wrap presents and bake/frost the cake, too. PLUS, the mild cold/allergy thing I've had is moving down to my chest, so I have that achy, tight-throated cough going on now!

I can't wait till the kids go back to school and I can actually have a chance to put my feet up. :(
