I'm still meeting with the hospital birth MW at 1:15. Not sure if I should take my sick little girl, but I want my husband there, too. Maybe I'll be one of the mom's who hands her 7 year old her iphone with some headphones. Ugh! I just don't think it's kind of me to bring my sick daughter while this woman is going to be around newborn babies.
If it makes you feel any better, I once lugged a laptop and headphones to a MW appointment - for my 7-year-old - when she was home sick from school. I stuck her in a corner and made her watch a tv show. Ya gotta do what ya gotta do. Pregnant ladies and babies are going to be exposed to germs all over - probably the grocery store is way way worse than an otherwise clean MW office when you've been careful not to let your sicko handle anything. I'm sure your karma is good enough to get away with that sort of thing once in a while anyway.
Scruffytoo - JEALOUS if you get bear at your MW's!!! Yum. Next to caribou it's my favourite meat, if it's done well.
beautifulnm - I know all about the "bad fish" cravings and I found this article very helpful. And I just eat peanut butter out of the jar. I know it's not strictly paleo - it's a legume - but I don't seem to have any issues with it and if you get the really good kind (the Maranatha smooth, salted is the best!!!) you really don't need any jam with it because it's naturally quite sweet. One spoonful isn't going to do much to your blood sugar.
AFM I went to the gym this morning... sigh. January is always such a PITA. The weight room wasn't bad - and I was happy to be sharing the heavy-lifting stations with another woman for once! - but the stretching area was packed and there were no mats available. People, people - you go to the gym to DO STUFF, not hang out on the mat doing vaguely yoga-like things and staring at the ceiling. You can do that at home. I did pushups without a mat and I hope I made some of the mat-hogs feel bad. Nothing like a 6-months-pregnant woman doing full military-style pushups (granted, with a slightly diminished range of motion, lol) to make someone hogging a mat for 15 minutes of gentle calf stretches feel bad. And no, that's not consistent with the Y's "everyone's awesome" policy and I don't care. I'm a grumpy January gym rat. I could have had a nearly full range of motion on those pushups if I'd had a mat. Grrr.
