I've been told to lay down for so many months that I am getting up and MOVING! lol
Appt today. Interested to see what he says.
I agree, feels wrong but hooray loose stools!
I don't blame you one bit for being out and about. Go for it! You're all clear now!!

That's what I'm doing too!! I hope it works, and if not, well, at least I've soothed myself with comfort food beyond belief.

I need this kid out so I can regain my health back. I know I can handle an induction with out any pain relief because I have done that before. But I just can't seem to handle anymore severe anemia like this.
Dude, I would be doing the same thing. Don't feel like either a cheater or a wimp. This is NOT a competition. We are all doing the best for ourselves and our babies and sometimes that means getting help.

I know I'm much healthier this time, so why does it hurt so much more when I still have weeks to go?
Idk, but I feel you on this. I don't remember it being so damn hard at the end. I mean, sure I wasn't skipping around picking daisies, but I don't remember all this sourness. The hearburn, the hip pain, the everything. UGH. Hang in there, mama.
AFM - I dropped DD off around 1:30 and decided I was going to treat myself to Sonic. I'd just had words with my "best" girlfriend and definitely needed something to make me feel better. Who cares at this point if that's food? I got mozzarella sticks and an Oreo blast. First time I've ever had either from Sonic. OMG. Can I say I sat in my car and almost cried tears of JOY b/c it was so damn good???
I'm not going to text my friend anymore, at least if I can truly help it, unless it's important. She is so self centered and really not supportive at this point, and I need to clear my brain and life of all things negative and just focus on getting through these next few weeks. She doesn't offer any sort of emotional support for the hard stuff, just makes stupid jokes. After she texted me this really rude and stupid comment, I texted her back that I wasn't going to send her any updates anymore. That's that. She said she was sorry but I didn't write back. If I did I knew I would say something I would regret. So there. I'm miserable, grumpy, and DONE with drama.
Ok, so after my indulgence at Sonic I went to Target. Ctx every 10 min, pretty much on the dot. So fun. Not. But I strolled around Target for an hour, just grabbing more stuff I "need". I got two nursing tanks, a nursing sleep bra, and more towels for the water part of my birth. I got a T-shirt I won't mind getting breastmilk and spit-up stains on that I can just live in for the first few weeks, and another pair of track shorts to just wear around the house. I'm set now I think, in terms of clothes for myself postpartum. Last time I was there I thought to pick up a 5 pack of Hanes bikini brief panties -- just some crappy underwear to wear the first few days/weeks that I won't mind ruining. I highly recommend doing this b/c you don't want to ruin your good panties.
I'm setting my sights on looking forward to being on the other side. It's too hard being down in the gutter wallowing in my own self pity. I'm tired, I'm anxious to get this baby earthside, but I'm also really excited. So, I'm going to try to just be excited mostly and let the other stuff slide for a bit.
