We've had a respiratory thing going around our place too. I was the last to catch it, and was knocked out for a whole week. UGH! The cough is still lingering, but I'm feeling back to my normal self after two weeks :) Lots of tea and ricola cough drops! Fortunately, no coughing kept me awake at night so at least I got good rest, including an entire week on the couch watching trash TV via hulu and netflix hehehehe!!!
I'm at 19 weeks this week, going to the midwives tomorrow afternoon with the whole fam so that we can all hear a heartbeat together! Our anatomy scan in April 17th...we are ALL really looking forwad to that one :)
I'm struggling with parenting my youngest daughter. She is a spit fire, and so demanding, and stubborn, and actually pretty mean. It's so confusing where it all comes from, cause we have a very happy and loving home. My pregnancy w/ her was VERY stressful- maybe there is some residual effects. She's been a toughy since the moment I went into labor. Also, I think she may have a slight hearing deficit??? i'm surprised at how many times I have to repeat myself sometimes, and she talks VERY loudly. We've done some silly little tests at home where she will sit on my husbands lap across the room, and while looking at me I will quietly say a word, and then we ask her to repeat what I said. Shockingly, we found that she couldn't hear exactly what I said. She can sometimes say a word that sounds like the one I've said. I'm calling the ped today to make an appt for her, poor thing. Humph.
I've been feeling great, tired, but great, and able to take walks most days and hit the free yoga class once a week! this is the healthiest pregnancy I've has so far :)
Hope everyone is having a lovely day...it's chilly and rainy here. But that's spring in No. Cali! I'll prob head to the greenhouse to sit with the seedings, and drink tea!!!
