weekend fun + an unhelpful itch

We had a really nice weekend.

On Saturday Myl and I had a lovely sleep in and then went to breakfast.  Saturday was a walking and bus day and as I climbed the first hill I wondered if I would make it. I took a picture of my feet at the start and end of the day to see if they would swell up like two puppies. I think I did alright on the swelling stakes.

 Hmm after actually looking at these pictures I would have to say there are no longer feet but puppies on the end of my legs. Oh dear.

We went to a little cafe just down the street and around the corner. It was a really hot day (low 30's) and I'm pretty sure the air was hotter in the cafe then outside but that was ok.
We ate tasty bacon and egg rolls.



Then we caught a bus to Vic Park to meet up with some very lovely friends who have moved away. I got to sit in the special seat.

We had a picnic with our friends and some silly ants decided they would like to join us. It was lovely to chat in the park. There was a nice cool breeze where we were sitting near the duck pond. I miss them lots and lots. :(

After our picnic we went to visit Myles little brother who has just moved to Sydney. He is living in the house I lived in when I first came to Sydney. Good times.
It was a hot day so after we left him we got some slushies.



Then we caught a bus to centennial park for Moonlight Cinema with some friends of Myl from school. We saw Love and Other Drugs. There was a lot of lovin going on in that movie but it was actually quite good. Kinda looked at what it means to totally love someone and give yourself up for them.

It was amazing to watch a movie under the stars. I kept forgetting we were outside and I would look up and see a few clouds and remember. Then I would look at Myl on whose chest I was leaning and we would smile at each other. What a nice way to spend an evening.



Cos I'm pregnant and all I was a bit sore and stiff at the end of the day. I walked in smaller than usual steps for the whole day and got a sore belly everytime I rolled over at the movie but that's ok. There is a huge hunk of baby inside of me. I kinda have to expect these things.

Something unexpected though is my crazy itchy hands and feet. They have been itchy since last Thursday and last night I woke up in the middle of the night going crazy with the itch. This isn't really a great pregnancy sign.

I called the birth centre and went in for a blood test for cholestasis. Its something connected to the liver and is shown by itchy hands and feet. I'm really hoping I don't have it. If I do I might need to be induced at 28 weeks. I should find out by the end of the week though.

Induced at 38 weeks? Oh no! I hope everything comes back normal.

It sounds like a lovely summer day though. Rest those puppies for a bit :D

I hope so too. I really don't want to be induced. Feeling pretty nervous but hopefully I will know all the results tonight.

It was a lovely day. Summer is so nice in the city.

I know the idea of being induced is scary & probably not how you saw the birth of your baby happening. I was induced at 38 weeks with signs of pre eclampsia. You hear horror stories about inductions but just remember everyone is different. I had a 4 hour labour & natural delivery with only gas for pain relief. My baby boy is a month old today and I'm just so glad he & I were both ok and feel so blessed to have him here. In the end isn't that what matters most? Good luck, hope the results were what you hoped for. From a long time reader, first time commenter.

Thanks for commenting and reading.
Thanks for your story. I think I need to keep remembering that as long as I have a little baby at the end it doesn't really matter how we get there. :)
