Thanks everyone! Managed to get a big chunk of sleep last night & I'm doing better today. Still exhausted, but I'm growing a person, that's hard work. :)
The hormonal crying about people dying has got to stop, though. Yesterday I at least have a logical explanation; Steve Jobs reminded me a lot of how my dad looked just before he died. But seriously, the crying over complete strangers who I haven't heard of in years is just...weird. Never had this reaction to pregnancy before.
writinglove That's great news about your baby's heart! I'm sure that's taken a weight off you.
montessorimama A pap? That seems really odd. Thought they only did those in the first few weeks, if at all. I'm going to have to try to have one sometime after the baby comes. I keep forgetting & haven't had one ummm....since my 6 week check up with ds1. Oops.
Dh has finally had enough of the mess around here too & decided to start helping me clear things out. Yay! I did ask him if he was nesting too. For some reason he wasn't amused. lol Hoping to get rid of several bags more of clutter/garbage & get the bedroom cleared up.
Anyone else starting to make a shopping list of things you need for the birth/first few weeks? I've already picked up a small package of Depends for the first couple days of bleeding. Debating between making myself some cloth pads for bleeding or just buying pads. After a few weeks wearing them, those disposable ones are so painful, though. I might do a combo. I want to get a small bottle of witch hazel, a fish net (for if I manage to have a water birth), a new shoelace for the cord, more capsules for the placenta, a better mortar & pestle, a wide elastic bandage to add to my belly band I made for ds3 (it wasn't quite long enough)....I'm sure there's few other things. lol Luckily we have everything we need for a baby, I just need to wash it & find somewhere to put it.
Is anyone else planning on using a milk saver? I thought about getting one so many times with ds3, but was sure I'd stop leaking soon & it would just be a waste of money. After leaking for nearly 10 months (it was only around 6 weeks with the first 2 kids)with him, I decided I was getting one this time right from the start. lol It's pretty cool, although a lot thicker than I was expecting.
