My Floating Weekend

A Slightly Different Summer

So I’m almost 35 weeks pregnant, and it’s been in the upper 80’s to low 90’s for the past few days.  My feet are swelling up to what my lovely younger brother called “Nutty Professor” size, and Baby Garrett is about 20 inches long now and weighs about 5.5 lbs.  There isn’t much I can do to feel comfortable, but floating is NOT one of those things.  We’re lucky to own a boat and live so close to Lake Norman, and for the past 4 summers have spent a great deal of time on the lake.  Now I can’t exactly say that my boating days are what they used to be, and it’s hard for me to have to ask to slow down so I’m not wincing in pain or feeling like I’ve got to pee ( I don’t like feeling like a burden, and not being able to do the things we normally do.) We spend more time idling than cruising and I’m doing much more floating than swimming. Yep, that’s me attempting to tan my big ol’ belly while floating away off the back of the boat, pretty funny….I know.

 I can’t slap a refreshing Bud Light Lime in a coozie and sip to my hearts content for obvious reasons, actually I can’t even imagine sipping a BLL with the heartburn I’ve been experiencing lately but hopefully soon heartburn will be a thing of the past and I will once again be able to enjoy a nice cold one with friends…until then…I will embrace these last few uncomfortable weeks…

Enjoy the beautiful scenery…
…and dream about the day when we get to take our little man out for picture perfect evenings like this : )
I have my 35 week check up tomorrow morning so I will post an update afterwards!  Have a Great Day!
