My morning task was to apply for EI. While on bed rest, I am eligible for sickness leave until baby arrives at which point it will switch to maternity leave. I’m so thankful to still get the full year leave to spend with baby.
The online application was not too painful and hopefully they will process it quickly and without problem although I’ve heard this is not always the case.
I’ve got a good routine going on now that includes writing blog posts, watching TV, perusing baby names, and eating many small meals. My abdominal pain is down to what I expect is a normal amount for muscles and ligaments get fixed stretched and pulled during pregnancy. This is SUCH a relief but at the same time, it’s getting harder to just stay on the couch and relax.
I didn’t sleep well again, reaffirming the need for Gravol still. I woke up early as usual and read a baby names book for hipsters. It had some good names and a lot of horrible names, but it poked fun at all them making it very confusing.
Jesse left to run some errands and my job was to finally just choose a crib and order it. Since finding out I was pregnant I had scoped out a few cribs online but just couldn’t pull the trigger for some reason … and then they’d end up being out of stock.
