every time I come here to try to catch up, I get pulled away and then there are like 5 more posts. I need to get to bed, but...
((christy)) --thinking of you and sending you some tranquility
Thank you, darkblue, yet again. :)
((Harmony)) I hope you're hanging in there through this milestone. Know I'm thinking of you!
bras: I broke out my old nursing bras, which were used when I was considerably heavier, so the band size is fine, but my boobs don't quite fill them in anymore. (Don't get me wrong--my boobs have gone up almost 2 full cup sizes already--probably to a full DD (E) now, but I got up to an H for a good 6 weeks after DS2 was born--a G was my biggest with DS1.) I'm hoping some better weight and blood sugar management keep the boobs down to G or below this time! I may get a cross your heart or whatever cheapie to get me through with some shape intact since my good bras are almost too small in the band right now. I'm saving the nursing bra $$ for after babe comes and I can figure out what my band size will be; I may have to special order some since my band size will hopefully be no more than a 36...and they just don't make easy to find giganto-cup bras in that band size.
napping: I long for them. But my 7yo is the most mischievous kid since...well, since I was a kid, and he gets into ALL kinds of stuff if he thinks I'm not watching. Plus, there's that whole "gotta get the homeschool work done" thing getting in my way... :P But I have been much more sleepy-tired than before. And winded-tired, too. It's almost embarrassing how often I catch myself panting in a day!
movement: Yesterday, babe wasn't active much at all, so I got all crazy-paranoid. Then today, I feel like there's almost a re-enactment of the original Aliens about to go down over here! I still can't quite make out if she's really head down or not, but the lump at the top-right (UGH--move over, baby girl!) of my uterus seems kind of big to be a 27-week head. It actually *hurt* where she was protruding earlier...now she's decided to dance all over the bottom of my uterus, so at least I can breathe better again.
was it mamabeakley who said the heartburn seemed to have stopped abruptly? ME, TOO! I'm totally jinxing myself by saying that, but I haven't done anything more than take digestive enzymes (once today!) for the past 4 days, and only had mild, passing bouts of hb--not even any Tums! FX this sticks around for a while. I was getting depressed about the prospect of being back on a PPI daily.
Oh, I found a tick on me today--blech. It was attached, but not burrowed, and was a nymph, rather than adult, so less likely to harbor any scary stuff. It was almost on the underside of my belly, which is why I couldn't SEE the dang thing for a day and a half. I'm keeping an eye for any sort of bullseye, but nothing seems to be developing at all, so that's reassuring.
One cute thing--I talked with my mom last night, and she said she'd been keeping an eye out for the type of cloth dipes we useD, but didn't see any. When I told her we were going with prefolds and covers/wool, she was downright tickled! (My mother does not get tickled, incidentally.) It's the kind she used with my bro and me, of course, and she's inordinately happy we're going to use them, too. :P
okay, sleepy ramblings finished. Have a great Tuesday, everyone!
