Travelmumma, yay for feeling a bit better! Eating and energy are great things. The Target toy sale is on, so xmas can’t be far behind. Maybe your chiro could help with the foot issues? And WOW re feeling the baby from the outside!
It must be meltdown week, I’ve been a bit like that this week too. TBH last pg I felt like absolute shit. Once I hit 34wks I felt great though. And if you practice your death look nobody will touch you ;) Even if breastfeeding is challenging (yes, that was me, sitting there holding the baby sobbing because BFing was so hard and my C/S scar hurt so much), it WILL get better. Hopefully this is just a blip, and you’ll feel better soon.
Purposefuldoula, yes, I think that would certainly cause swelling. Hopefully it’s the last you see of it.
GreenTea, hopefully you make it to term this time, and have all your xmas stuff organised.
Darkblue, we love playdough here, I just leave it for a day or two and vacuum the bits up. Love the tshirt you linked to, that’s the sort of thing I’d need to wear when MIL visits. She’s already tried to touch me, on my left side just under the ribs. I was maybe 8wks then, so I told her that my uterus was still well below my pelvis, and that that might be a bit inappropriate ;)
Chicajones, I think I felt movement last time at about 17wks, and I think DP was the same.
Kel, glad you’re feeling good.
Madis, hope your headache woes go away.
Kaleiskind, great that you’ve got careproviders you’re happy with. How much maternity leave do you get to have?
Cieloazul, dehydration in summer always gives me headaches too.
Esp, you’re running a half marathon?
Lovemyzoo, hope your appointment happens when it’s supposed to. Out of the 2 appointments I’ve had with my birthworker, both were rescheduled because she was at births.
Themothership, I’m glad you’re enjoying this pg.
Anyitara, great advice.
I’m in the midst of losing it today. I feel sick again, and my back really really really hurts. It was starting to hurt a couple of weeks ago, then I had a fall a few days ago. So much pain! My neck's out too so I've had days of headaches as well. I went to the place with the drop-in chiro today, and he didn’t come, MUCH to my disappointment. I called his practice to see how much it is to see him there, and we just can’t afford it. It makes me so angry that I could go see a doctor for free and get prescription painkillers for about 1/20th the price of something that would actually FIX the problem. I locked myself in the toilet and had a huge sob about the unfairness of it all this afternoon.
