Zubeldia-- I am glad to hear that I am not the only one that isn't hungry. I did manage to eat one snack today, but then hardly had an appetite for dinner. Awesome that you are walking again-- I'm sure that makes you feel human. I can walk for long periods, but only if it's earlier in the day. Sunday we walked all around the historic district and I felt great, but by evening my pelvic area feels the intense pressure and the pain too. Either this baby is huge or my pelvic floor muscles are just old and worn out. LOL I don't remember feeling this way with my last!
Boston-- ditto on the naturopath. I have a pediatrician's office lined up- but will be using the Ped nurse practitioner/lactation consultant that is employed there. My sister has always gone to naturopaths and seems to always be able to give me remedies for all of my children's illnesses and issues. I am hoping and praying this baby stays healthy despite 2 older brothers in school....I dread sicknessin babies b/c it makes me a nervous wreck. My 1st was never sick- until he started preschool at age 3. But baby #2 was exposed to all of his brother's germs and had colds and stomach flus a lot. Meatballs, stews, and meatloafs sound great. We eat basically no processed foods other than Lara bars and some choice items like crackers, tortilla chips, and some desserts. But, DH loves to cook..and will be home/working from home for 2 weeks...so I am hoping I don't need tons of frozen food b/c we do'nt have time right now to make it!! LOL
Pregnova-- I agree about being sick about the negativity. All I hear all day at work is ... haven't you had that baby yet (I'm only 36 weeks!)...."oh honey, you're about to pop..you'll never make it to your due date" . There are 2 people that always have positive comments-- and I really look forward to being around them.
Vegan-- I LOVE watching baby story when it is about a homebirth/water birth, etc... It is so empowering and I always cry. That is so sweet to hear about your daughter! My boys are excited, but they have a different outlook than a girl would, I think. They have both played with dolls and loved it- but they are so much more into boy stuff. Thhey just want to play with him!!
Dannic and Oki- you 2 ROCK for homeschooling. I have always considered it, but haven't ever made that decision for many reasons.
I continue to get so excited logging in to see who is next!! CAnnot wait to hear more birth stories and see more baby pictures!!!!
