So I have been back on the straight for 3 days now. I did not wake up for any dance classes this week. I have been eating much better tho. I have not eaten anything out since Sunday night. I donno what my weight would have been at home as opposed to the doctor. But I am weighing in at 194.6 right now. Not 201 like the nurse told me, thank god. Yesterday I went to a dance class after work which was not a great idea. But you know I had to try. My ankles get really aggrivated after standing on them 7-8 yrs. Then try adding a dance class after that. I had some pretty scary spider veins popping out at me growling. So I need to kick my ass into going in the AM and not after. Because after equals misery. I am gonna kick up the notch on water aerobics cuz if dancing is too much after standing all day. Water aerobics is fine. Takes the pressure off my feet and makes me feel better. Sometimes I just hate how late at night it is. Especially since once I get home it's 7:30 and I only get to see Scott for 90 minutes or so for the whole day.
We finally got the room painted over the weekend. I started painting it and then Scott made like I was awful for attempting to hurt the baby. Everything I do now is "Did you check with your doctor?" "Should you be on step stools?" I am living in one of those Pro Life ads that says your not the mother, your just a vessel carrying a baby. Who cares about you, we care about the baby. Yes I care about the baby too and I take precautions. Speaking of which the hospitals here just banned water births. Great timing! I was actually less worried about my labor because of the water birth and now that seems to be taken away. I read that women drive from Champaign and Peoria both 50 miles away laboring to use the tubs here in town at the hospitals. Everyone I have talked to that had a birth in a hospital bed and then tried a water birth said it was much more gentle going without painkillers was much easier. I would like to be present for my sons birth. I think Scott was kinda relieved when this ban went up. Why are ppl afraid of anything different? Mind your own business. Here is the article, they said you can labor in the tub but once u have to push, you are asked to get out. Why do I have a feeling the tubs will just be gone by the time I need it.
There is a protest for it in front of the hospital in a few weeks. I better go, it's important to me.
