I am de-lurking after a few crazy months. It was very silly, but I freaked out when I went from having a due date in mid May to June 1st. "Ack! Technically not a May baby!" Hah hah. So I am finally over this foolishness and I want to get back to socializing!
Yesterday I had an ultrasound to check a low-lying placenta (totally fine now!). Oh man it has made my brain baby crazy. After work I spent hours organizing all the clothes by immediate use (up to 6 months I guess) versus later use. Then washing the clothes. Then getting out some baby toys. A little flurry of nesting.
So many contractions! I am freaked out by how many BH contractions I have felt this go around. With DS, I had such a different experience.
Cheese! I am a cheese maniac.
Walking over a mile a day for my work commute (I am so spoiled to be so close!). I also did a restorative yoga class this weekend that was awesome. I moved to San Francisco a few months ago and I keep feeling blown away by how rich the yoga options are here. This class integrated yoga and hypnosis, was run by two doulas, and had special flows for the pregnant ladies. I felt so guilty about taking a whole Sunday afternoon off to go to the class, but it has made a huge difference in my mood.
Body changes and other milestones:
I really hope people don't mind me popping back into the group this late in the game. I spent the winter moving, starting a new job, getting DS started in school, being sad that I don't know many people in CA, being pregnant, supporting DH in a frustrating job search, and generally feeling like I don't have my feet on the ground. I think DH's search to get back into a job after 3.5 years of being a stay at home dad has been a lot harder than I expected. But then again it might be awesome if he is home when the LO arrives.
What other basic info should I share to re-introduce myself? The baby is a girl! I made the u/s doc verify that it is just one and a girl. Hee hee.
