So today is tax day, and it’s also the beginning of Passover (tonight). My mother in law has been busting her toosh to put out an amazing dinner for tonight. So far, Ella will not be wearing her Passover bib that my girlfriend Blair got for her.
She has 8 days to get this show on the road if she wants to sport it.
Tomorrow is my official last day of work. I saw 1 client this morning, and I did a great job of hiding just how crampy and uncomfortable I was. I now look at crampy and uncomfortable as a positive thing since my doc said it’s doing something. Last appointment I was 80% effaced, and she says that all the cramping means Ella is getting ready. I see 2 more clients early tomorrow morning then it’s officially maternity leave. Ella better come soon because I can’t just sit around doing nothing for 2 more weeks. No income, and time on my hands to spend money…not a good scenario.
Breakfast this morning was a delicious one:
1/2 Cup Oats
1 Cup Water
1 T Peanut Butter
1 Scoop Chocolate Amazing Grass Powder
1 T Chia Seeds
1 t Maca Powder
Splash of Unsweetened Chocolate Almond Milk
Boil water, cook oats, add peanut butter right after it’s finished cooking to get it all melty and gooey, add rest of the ingredients, stir and enjoy!
After training my client, although I was crampy I wanted to go over to the gym and work through it on the elliptical. I got in 30 minutes and did some stretching and was wiped. All I wanted to do was come home, blast out a post, and lye down.
Does Ella look ready to go??
lunch was multigrain tabouli and 4 vegan dumplings:
I have a few things to do this afternoon around the house. I plan to fit in a nap also very soon. Michal yelled at me last night that I BETTER get everything together for the hospital. I have my bag packed for the most part, the problem is a lot of the things I will need i use all the time, so we will need to throw them in. He’s like “you better make me a list because you will not be in the mindset of remembering everything! I put all the stuff from the bathroom in a large zip lock bag, so I can still use them everyday, but he can just grab it when we are leaving. Most importantly, my make-up bags are in there too. I made him a couple lists so far, and need to re-check my bag to see what else I need to add to it:
We also have our “Munchkin” directions to finish.
Then, I will be leaving him detailed instruction, and all the ingredients/ utensils to make me my breakfast when I am there overnight. This should be interesting 😉
I can’t wait to see his VOO.
Enjoy the rest of your day! I am off to rest and then get some things done before Passover dinner tonight.
Keep the Ella birthday guesses coming on my Friday post 🙂
I should have the 3rd trimester post up in the couple days! Almost finished 🙂
What was the highlight of your weekend?
I found mine was VERY boring. There is NOTHING on TV, I am pretty much out of books, and after I cleaned out cabinets and such, wore myself out and had no choice but to lye on the couch I was going out of my mind. What can I do when I can only sit and lye? Drives me crazy 😉
Moms, what key things should I make sure I have prepared for the hospital? The stuff no one tells you about?
