34 weeks

Forgive my lack of caring how I look for a picture. For the first time ever, I don't care. 
At all. 
How bad I look in this picture pretty much sums up how I've been feeling recently.
All that matters is the belly.

34 weeks

I'm definitely in my nesting phase. Only problem is the doctor has told me I have to stop cooking, cleaning, and anything else that increases my heart rate.

My "normal" heart rate for the past few months has been between 110-120, but now it's over 120. My OB was finally worried when he found out my heart rate has been this high (I'd told him, but he just told me it was normal; he never asked HOW high it was) and sent me to my regular doctor. He did an EKG and everything's normal. They're taking me off a medicine I've been on the past few months and hoping that's what it is, but so far no change!

Who knows how long this will last, but it's already been a week. I'm going crazy, there are so many things I want to cook, so many cleaning projects I want to do (and ones I started but now can't finish), and holy cow, I want to exercise!

The only thing keeping me from doing these things is reminding myself that it could hurt Evelyn, so I need to take care of myself & take it easy (and I do...for the most part...). It's not bedrest but it certainly is 
feeling like it! It's TORTURE!


  1. Psh, Look as bad as you feel. You look beautiful in this picture!

  2. I hope you can get back to things soon! I'm a little the opposite right now - I wish I had to stay at home because I am so tired of going to work. Ha! I know that wouldn't last long though, I can imagine it would be torture after a few days. But just think, you only have a few short weeks left! I am so jealous!

  3. You don't know how to take a bad picture!
