This week has brought much more laziness than the past weeks. I haven’t wanted to wear makeup or do my hair or the dishes or cook or anything. I’ve wanted to lounge and shop and teach piano and do nothing else. I guess the “extra” responsibilities feel tiring to me right now. My groin still hurts, but only in the mornings now, for the most part.
My feet are still swelling quite a bit, but I went to the podiatrist yesterday and she’s going to help figure out what’s going on. I wouldn’t be concerned if it was just swelling a little, but my right foot swells constantly and hurts to walk on. It was acting up before my appointment yesterday, which was good, because she really got to see what’s going on. When she pressed on my swollen foot, it would leave dent marks (not good). She said this means that my lymphatic system probably isn’t working properly. So, she taped my foot up to give it a bit of support and I go back Friday to see what to do as our next step. If it is my lymphatic system, I’ll have to go for reflexology massages (which sounds kind of awesome to me). If it’s not that and the tape helps, I will have to get really ugly orthopedic shoes (not thrilled about, but I’d rather do that and not be in so much pain). So, we’ll see. I’m constantly amazed at how expensive pregnancy can be and how much more high maintenance I’m becoming with each week.
Speaking of which, I had a midwife appointment on Monday, and we talked about why the baby might be breech. She mentioned that sometimes if the mother is holding onto fears or emotions that are distressing to her, the baby will sense that and want to be closer to her heart (aaaw). So, as we started talkiing, a few things came up. She suggested I go see a counselor or the homeopath I saw a few months ago for my cough. We decided the homeopath might be the best option, because I’m already comfortable with her, we can talk through some things, and she can give me some remedies that might turn baby. So, I will probably go do that next week since I’ve had 2 appointments and 1 more this week that are adding up to expensive.
We’re still waiting on the mattress (another week, boo). I guess it hasn’t come in yet. That’s okay, though, because I know the anticipation will make it that much better.
Thanks for reading!
