What is Fibro Feelings?

Over the past week I put all my Thanksgiving/fall decorations away and put up almost all my Christmas ones. Although all my decoration storage tubs are put away our table is covered in ornaments for when we get our tree. Maybe that will motivate The Helpful Hubby to want to help me get the tree sooner =) hehe. Our doula also came over and wanted a tour of our house since we’ll be laboring here for awhile before heading to the hospital, so I wanted the house to be pretty clean for her.

All this means I did a lot of extra straightening and cleaning between those two activities. Not to mention that we set up the crib the night before the doula came. It has left my back, legs and rear (sciatica) killing me. I’m actually going to try soaking in a an Epsom salt bath for the first time while pregnant tonight. We got our baby bath thermometer in so I’ll be able to test out the temperature of the water to make sure it is safe. I had been nervous to take one without a thermometer since the water is not supposed to be hot enough to raise your body temperature.

I’m thinking this week will be a great time to rest and ice some and write out my Christmas cards. I have addressed and stamped a lot of the envelopes, but haven’t started writing any. I already received my first Christmas card of the year on December 1st. It’s only three weeks away now and I still need to figure out gifts for a lot of people. For some reason gift ideas are not coming as easily as they normally do this year. Since I need to mail many of my gifts this creates a problem the closer Christmas gets.

How’re your holiday preparations going?

These new candy cane sticks are HUGE!! That is a regular big one in the middle of the picture.
