Today we had a midwife appointment. That actually went well. Otherwise, this was just not a good day at our house. Nothing seemed to work, no one could connect, all that stuff.
First, we had plans to go out Abbotsford to see my mom and set up her new computer, which was supposed to arrive two days ago. It still isn’t there, so we had to cancel that. A big boo goes out to Purolator on that front.
Second, we visited Canadian Tire to buy a new aerobed, since apparently my pregnant self is difficult to sleep with. Once we got the bed home we realized that the automatic pump was a 12V car plug, instead of the 120V wall plug–no good. When we went in to exchange it, they didn’t have a suitable replacement. So, we have to order one on-line, which means another week of poor sleep for Jon.
Finally, this evening I installed Microsoft Money. We want to keep better track of our finances, with a baby on the way and all that. However, we discovered that our bank, TD Canada Trust, doesn’t work with Money 2005. Apparently both sides have known about this problem for nearly 4 months now, and no progress. We’ll have to call Microsoft tomorrow and ask for a refund, since they promised that they supported downloads from TD. Blech.
In an attempt to not be a total downer, here are the stats from the midwife:
Pregnancy date – 26 weeks, 5 days
Fundal height – 28 cm (should equal the number of weeks, +/- 2cm)
My weight – Pre-pregnancy + 22 pounds
Baby’s heartrate – 148 bpm
Baby’s position – Head down, nestled into my right side (the same as before)
