Love the u/s pic! So lovely and clear. I won't be having an u/s for a long time (if at all) but I love getting a peek at what our little ones look like.
I can't believe it's been 6 weeks (today) since I found out I was really pg. Wow! What a wild, crazy, intense 6 weeks it's been, too. And Monday makes 10 weeks along (though my OCD side wants to clarify that I'm not sure exactly when I o'd, so...). Ten sounds so much better than 9! Hoping the time flies with this one. I don't seem to be terribly patient.
I'm on #5 but not in maternity, yet. Not sure when I'll need it but am determined to avoid it as long as I can - particularly because no one knows yet!! But I'm in the losing-weight crowd, down about 15 pounds from pre-pg, so that's probably part of it. I tend to lose 30-40lbs by the time baby is born, losing early on, then maintaining for awhile, and gaining a little right at the end. I'm hoping to be more successful at losing safely and keeping it off this time because I'm working hard at getting myself altogether healthier. I think that's a big factor for me.
I attended a birth yesterday, which was 10x harder due to being pg - and I hadn't told my client and didn't feel like I should. I met her at her home around 9pm Thursday, went to the hospital at 11pm, and baby was born at 2:22pm the next day! It was the longest I've attended and crazy hard. Thankfully we napped at two points, but there's only so much sleep in a hospital (which is part of why I birth at home!!) and with a client waking every few minutes to breathe through contractions. When I got home, I slept for 7 hours straight, then woke in the middle of the night, ate, and slept another 8. I could've slept longer if my DD hadn't needed me.
But I didn't actually throw up at the birth and was only horribly nauseous *some* of the time. The mama got her VBAC and was happy with my support, so we'll call it a win.
I can't say I'm sorry I don't have anyone else on the books right now, though.
