This song keeps playing through my head. I have not had the best day today. Or yesterday. Where do I start? Hmmmm......Well, yesterday was my 33rd birthday. My mom and my sister came over to paint the nursery (yay!) and I watched my nieces in the living room. My hubby was packing to leave to go out of town and my brother stopped over as did my sister's fiance. Can anyone say full house??? Everyone but my mom and sister left and things quieted down which was nice. My hubby got me the new iPhone for my birthday. I love that man! He ordered it through Apple but it had not come in yet, so my brother informed us that Wal.mart had it in stock and he went to pick it up. I was so excited! Until he got it home and it was not activated. The associate had called Apple and was told that it could take up to 24 hours to activate. Excuse me?!?!?! This is my only phone. Hubby is out of town. I am 8 1/2 months pregnant. Do you see the problem?? There was no way I could be without my phone for that long.
So I called AT&T and they told me that it would take up 30 minutes and it should be working. Tick. Tick. Tick. Thirty minutes later and guess what? No service. So I give it a full hour. By this time I am livid. I go to Wal.mart and they are no help. Then I drive 12 miles to the AT&T corporate store for help. They give me the same song and dance that it will take a short time to activate. I kindly informed them that it had now been 3 whole hours and I was not happy!! (read really ticked off pregnant woman on a rampage) It took about 20 minutes and miraculously they fixed it. By this time I was hot, tired and crabby. And of course the trip home put me in traffic and let's just say I needed anger management for my road rage. But then I got home and was able to relax and enjoy my birthday and thought that all was well. And it was....until 11 pm when my freezer began growling at me. There was an ice build up around the fan blade and it was noisy!! I scraped it and it worked....for a few hours. It started again at 3 am and I was up blow drying the stupid freezer trying to defrost this area. During this late night episode I broke one of the fan blades. Fan-freaking-tastic!!! I had to order a replacement for $60 and send all of my stuff over to my mom's house.
And then there was today. I had my 34 week appointment and it starts off with my blood pressure being too high. Just great! Then he informed me that I had protein in my urine and have to do the 24 hour urine test. So I brought home a large, bright orange jug to pee in. Lovely. And I am on modified bed rest. Thankfully my fridge still works or I would have to stay with my mom to keep my pee cold. And how nasty is it to keep pee in your fridge?? Just yuck! And to top it all off I was supposed to go out of town this Thursday through Sunday and now that is canceled.
I had blood work done today and so far that does not indicate preeclampsia (yay!) and I have more blood work tomorrow as well as my urine tested (glad I don't have that job!). Then another visit with my OB on Friday.
So this has been my week! And it is only Tuesday! Please pray that I do not have preeclampsia and that my blood pressure can be controlled though meds. Miss Maddie needs a few more weeks before she is ready to be here. And for everyone around me as I am on the warpath!!
