Doctor’s Appt & Penny Monday!!! September 29, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — handfulofquietness @ 7:26 pm

I had my 33 week appointment this morning. It was fine – heartrate was good, blood pressure was good, weight was up 4 pounds! Now before you gasp, let me remind you that’s the FIRST WEIGHT GAIN I’ve shown!!! 😀 Not bad for being 8 months pregnant!!!! HAHA!

I am not feeling good though – I have a large infected boil under my arm. It’s about the size of a golf ball – even the doctor whistled at it. YEOUCH! It’s not letting me sleep and is throbbing non-stop. He gave me antibiotics and told me to try hot compresses. I’m doing it – but it’s really made my weekend awful!!! I’ve been up since about 2am because I couldn’t sleep it hurt so bad. Blech!


Getting up early though meant I headed out early! Ryan spent the night at my MIL’s house, so I was alone.
