Last Friday we headed to the Cove in Yarmouth (about 45 minutes from Falmouth) for my birthday weekend getaway. The boys were so excited to hit the indoor pool–it was adorable! We went out to eat when we arrived Friday and then hit the pool for some night swimming. I love the Cove because the keep the pool area (and water) really warm! We had to drag the boys out of the water around 9 to get them back to the room and wind them down.
I think they finally went to bed around 10 p.m.! Too bad they didn’t sleep in! 😉 Luckily, since it was my birthday, Clarke got up early with the boys and took them to go get breakfast for me. They also came back with birthday cards and flowers. 🙂 We ate a leisurely breakfast and then went back to the pool for more swim time. Swimming felt so good, since I was weightless! I failed to locate my two maternity swimsuits, so I was forced to wear a regular bikini! Luckily it was a bikini and not a one piece, or I’m quite sure I wouldn’t have fit! After that I took a nap (a frequent occurrence for me now!), while Clarke took the boys to try out racquetball and play in the game room.
Since it was a sunny, albeit windy day, we got some outside time at a local playground and then visited an Audubon preserve on the water. After that was dinner at Not Your Average Joe’s. We intended to go to the Lego movie, but by the time we got sat and finished dinner it was too late. So, what did we do? More swimming of course! We couldn’t get enough of the pool and warm temps there (especially after the hellacious winter we have had!). The boys watched the Muppet movie until bed time and we swam again in the morning before heading home. Everyone was exhausted by the time we got home. We had such a fun family weekend– it was nice to have the time together without any home projects or other things to interfere.
As for the 35 week mark in this pregnancy, I am still feeling pretty tired and large (as you can see my belly continues to grow). I have been feeling a lot more Braxton Hicks contractions and pelvic pressure as I approach the last month. I have a strong feeling I will not go the whole 40 weeks with this one (38 weeks for #1 and 39 1/2 weeks for #2). Maybe it’s just wishful thinking? 😉
