• Week Thirty One
Here do I begin, 31 weeks pregnant is uncomfortable of course but I went camping starting on 31 weeks and the 4 days being in nature was great! My only complaint would be walking because of my SPD.
Spencer & I ate really well on the camping trip besides a couple vegan s'mores! We went to Long Beach, Tofino and watched the surfers, took funny photos
Oh and I GOT ENGAGED! Here is what happened:
We went to the beach at our campsite because I wanted to take photos of the sunset & the beach! Spence told me afterwards he wanted to do it at the beach but there was so many people. & it worked out perfectly because I saw this cave & wanted to go to it!
I was taking a video of us going to the gave because it was a little tough since the tide was coming in. It's kinda long and anticlimactic hahah but going to it and then he went into the cave further & was like " whoa! Come loook!" I thought there was like a crawl space to another side and I leaned over and he turned around on one knee and asked me. "Will you marry me?" Eeee!! I could feel my heart beating out of my chest & my pulse on my wrist going crazy.
As far as planning a wedding goes, we have always talked about just eloping. We don't believe in spending thousands on a party. It's going to be super intimate with just the parental and our commissioner. We have already chosen a date and couldn't be more excited! I will be HUGE by the time we do get married so I will need to find a dress that works for my big bump. We wanted to get married prior to delivering because we all want the same last names <3
We sat by the campfire tons & Julie, Spencer's mother made our little one this cute toque! I requested a pom pom and Julie hadn't made one for a very long time but she made it perfectly! Spence & I already decided little ones first hat he comes home in will be this one. We love it so much!
Over all, 31 weeks wasn't that bad. I can only complain about being in pain so many times too! I do however, have a new rib pain I don't know if I stated that last week or not.. BUT it's gotten worse as baby grows and so I've taken off the last couple of days at work.. I only made it through 2 days this week so I'am highly considering medial leave at this point.. My lovely supervisor and I have talked and will be seeing what we can do to accommodate the rest of my pregnancy with a standing desk is we can get one in quick enough. Mine is meant to be one but I think it may be broken because it doesn't go very high and is still very much a sitting desk. My work ethic is so important to me that the other day I cried because I feel like I'm becoming useless. I don't know what it is or why I have such a hard time with relaxing & taking care of myself so I'm not uncomfortable but I just feel guilty lazing around at home! I hate it!
