Today our friends and Matt got me another massage. I am so lucky! It was amazing and sooo needed. My body is so stiff, so it was really beneficial. I’m a little worried about the recovery from all of this, it’s definitely going to take a while.
Tomorrow is officially the last day of bed rest, I can’t believe it! It will be the end of one journey as we move full speed ahead into the next one. This is when it would be really nice to be able to get up and do things, because I have a feeling that tomorrow is going to be a long day and night. Luckily mum is back in town, so she can distract me. It’s strange because I have been unable to fulfill the normal nesting behaviors. Matt has had to take care of all of that, and he has done amazing. Everything at home is ready to go for babybug… I can’t wait until we are all back there! Soon enough!
Today I was actually excited to lay in this bed because a local massage therapist came to my room in the hospital and gave me a pre-natal massage! The first week I was here, Matt surprised me with a massage from ‘A Mellow Mood‘. It was exactly what I needed- to calm the mind and to help my body adjust to the constant rest. Last week, one of my bosses stopped by and was asking about the massage and who did it… I didn’t realize that she was asking so she could give me the gift of another massage (thanks Annette!). What a treat! Amazingly the massage therapist said I was less tight/tense today than I was last time. I guess I’ve relaxed and settled in!
Today went well. Mum left early this morning which is a bummer, but she’ll be back next weekend before the big day! Babybug is moving around a lot and was looking good on the monitor today so I was able to get some breaks. Yesterday on the other hand, I was on the monitor for most of the day. It really is day to day here! I have been knitting quite a bit. Unfortunately I ran out of yarn for my hat and the brand/color seems to be discontinued, but we found someone in Canada who sells it. While I wait for that to come, I’ve started on a baby cardigan. Fingers crossed I can do it… I may have bitten off more than I can chew, but it’s worth a try!
