Last night my DS said the funniest thing. While waving his hand he said "Nite, nite baby" to my belly and then "Nite, nite Daddy." to DH and then "Nite, nite baby in the Daddy belly." as he waved at DH's belly. It was soo funny and cute. He says some funny things. The other day I was trying to get him to say "ridiculous" so I asked him to say "You're ridiculous." He repeated "You're ridiculous, Mama!" It was great. Ah he's a doll.
This morning, at 6am, I was sitting at my desk and a coworker came up to me and said "What's going on? You're glowing!" lol I was confused but it was nice to hear first thing in the morning.
Ooh, midwife appointment was today. Happy to say I'm up a total of 8 lbs at 18w. Yay! So hopefully no more talks too about my low weight gain. I did get told that my blood pressure was kind of low (108/50 or something) so I need to be careful to not stand too quickly. I was really fainty on Sunday so I wasn't surprised.
My last recent update: I scheduled my anatomy scan for next Monday. I'm sooo excited! DH and my mom will be going with me. Yay. Oooh and I just nailed down how much time I get off after the baby is born: 12 weeks followed by 3 weeks of half days. I know it's not as much as some places, but it's a long time for me. I'm super stoked.
Jenica - That's awesome that you carried your DS while exercising! I haven't carried my DS much since he's been 25lbs, it seems to hurt my back. That conference sounds wonderful, I would love to attend a birth focused conference at some point in my life.
Katie - That sounds like what we just went through with the illnesses. My DH is still struggling with the cold, but luckily DS is better. I just hope that the 2 sick kiddies at daycare have the same virus DS had (they were both exposed to the same person that got my son sick) so he doesn't get sick again. The aquadoula sounds *wonderful*! I'm kind of wishy washy about if I want a water birth or not, so I'm having trouble making a decision. I loved the shower last time, and would have really benefited from being submerged, but would have had to get out to push anyway.
Sarah - Yay for feeling movement! I agree that it is so super cute. The best feeling. Sunday morning I was actually able to feel the LO kicking from the outside with my hand. It was awesome!! Then I felt it again on Monday, but today has been pretty quiet. Every time I reach down the LO gets quiet.
Nicole - That dream is funny. I had a lot of breastfeeding dreams last time, I think I was anxious about it (rightfully so). I'm feeling the same as you, although my breastfeeding challenges don't seem near as complex as yours were. It was incredibly hard and I really hope it goes easy this time. Have fun at your appointment tomorrow! I love going to see my midwife. DH thinks I'm weird.
