Currently I am 28 weeks pregant, due in 11 weeks on March 22nd and as of Wednesday I have not been able to walk more than a few steps at a time. I went in to the doctor today and they determined it is a pinched sciatic nerve. I am going to try physical therapy starting tomorrow, but it sounds like it is not likely that I will be back to work any time soon.
So... at least the next few weeks it looks like we are going to have some lazy daze. I am not on "bed rest", I just can't really be on my feet much or walk much. Here is the to do list for the next few weeks:
-Scrapbook a lot.
-Oversee the setting up and decorating of Jack's room (he is currently residing in the babies room). (By oversee I mean direct Matt, since the actual physical process of setting up and decorating is near impossible for me).
-Get quotes from sheetrocking tapers for the basement
-Get quotes on carpet for the basement
-Oversee the completion of the basement: demo, electric, sheetrock, ceiling, painting.
-Acquire a headboard for our bedroom... any good ideas?
-Buy a few things on Craigslist (twin mattresses, infant carrier)
-Sell a few things on Craigslist (extra crib mattress, broken washer and dryer (free), desk we inherited with the house (free))
-Try a few recipes from my new "Pioneer Woman" cookbook (Pico de Gallo, Cinnamon Buns, Twice Baked potatoes)
-Finish sewing the babies quilt (my first solo quilt, sewed with my 5th grade level sewing skills, let's just say it is not perfect, but made with love).
-Find doctors and dentists in Arvada.
-Enjoy LOTS of time with Matt and Jack before our family becomes a family of 4!
