Keuriweo: your getaway sounds great. I’ve been meaning to ask you if the pacific northwest would be a good destination weather-wise for this time of the year…I’ve been thinking that I’d like to plan something before it’s too late. Also good luck with your echo! You probably said this already on the high risk thread, but was there a specific reason you’ve gotten subsequent echos? Or is that just what your doc/midwife/perinatologist recommends? Also sorry to hear about your FIL. What a mix of emotions you guys must be going through…
Sol, I feel the same at times (very hungry all the time). At night I do find that I get more full more easily. As others have said, it sounds like you’re just listening to your body which is great. The description of the chips made my mouth water! I can see how you needed them J
It’s been interesting to hear everyone’s take on vaxing…
Andaluza: score on the co-sleeper!
Intime, thanks for the recs…was Dr. Mendelson’s book “How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor” the one you were referring to?
Ithappened, thinking of you and your scan today! Hoping you get to see the goods. To respond to your infusions question, before our kitchen got gutted, I was regularly doing RRL, nettles and oatstraw. I hope to get back on the bandwagon now that I have a sink and range.
Tchotchkes, I forgot about the relaxin piece…I woke up this morning and stretched my arms and my shoulder got so sore…I have to remember to take a little more care.
NewMum, I feel the same about the reading/educating in general…I started thumbing through the Womanly Art of Breastfeeding at my last midwife appointment…I definitely think that I’ll see if can track down my own used copy for reference.
Bjacques, dislike the “you’re old” speech! And the “you’re too young” speech. Not helpful. Good luck with giving your notice!
Speaking of leg pain/spasms…I had the most terrible leg cramps last night. I think it’s a combination of wearing flats that my high arches haven’t quite acclimated to this season (plus more weight?) and not eating my daily banana! Also thinking about looking for some coconut water in bulk…but wondering about the sugar content (though natural).
so ready for this week to be OVER. feeling pretty unmotivated at work. all i want to do is house/baby stuff. our weekends are starting to pick up with obligations and events...which makes me a little nervous (like others) when i look at my list of things to do.
this blog post made me laugh and is a nice distraction: http://joannagoddard.blogspot.de/2011/10/motherhood-mondays-dads-hilarious-birth.html#more
