29 Down, 11 to Go
This week's pregnant activity was a root canal yesterday. I can honestly say I'd rather have been unconscious during the procedure and I would very much like to have heavy drugs at my disposal right now rather than Tylenol which is essentially a joke of a pain killer. It's not a lot of fun to be super hungry all the time yet suffering with each chew. Also not fun? Lying on your back for hours at a time while pregnant. I already have trouble breathing out of my nose, but to be on my back with the fetal pressure and sinuses AND a plastic wrap over my mouth while my tooth was being worked on for hours. Yeah. I'm not thrilled.
Over the weekend I got to hold Christine's new baby on my bump. I had lots of people touch my bump at my dad's service. The bump is a big ol' icebreaker and while I don't think I look so huge, I guess I do. The assistant to the dentist was rubbing my tummy as we talked about my next appointment. The guy in the waiting room saw my bump and saw that as an opportunity to give me his entire life's story including telling me about marrying his high school sweetheart, his kids having type 1 diabetes and both he and his son spending time in jail. Awesome.
