I think most pregnant women (and their partners) feel like there’s a ticking time bomb inside of them. Life is about to totally change, but you don’t know when. Even though I’m just 31 weeks along (tomorrow), I feel like this now. I have twice weekly doctor’s appointments at this point and at every one, there is the possibility that they will decide that this baby will do better on the outside than the inside. The biggest concern that everyone has now is that my placenta isn’t providing the proper nutrients which will lead to growth restriction. I could be wrong, and hopefully I am, but I really don’t think I’m going to go all the way to 40 weeks. Honestly, I’d be happy if this baby is born in 2014, not 2013. But right now, I’m just taking it appointment by appointment.
Since we really have no idea what’s going to happen in the upcoming weeks, Jason and I decided to have what’s probably going to be one of our last nice date nights before the baby. Last Christmas, my dad and stepmother gave us a McCormick & Schmick’s gift card and for whatever reason, we hadn’t used it yet. Until last night.
All cleaned up. By that I mean that I changed out of the leggings that I have become my uniform. Also, my hair is too long.
I had the Seared Sea Scallops which came with tomato pesto, crab potato hash and sauteed spinach. It was good, but a little too rich.
While Jason had the Filet Mignon.
And we shared some pan roasted wild mushrooms.
It was a nice night and who knows when we’ll be able to do it again. Hopefully in 2013 because this baby needs to stay put until at least January.
