I found the bedroom action over here.
I have had more energy lately, but it's sure not a lot.
Have had a lot going on lately. Feeling great pregnancy wise, not sick, I think the migraines I had for a few days are gone. I'm wearing my jeans I wore before I got pregnant, that didn't fit before my miscarriage in July. That's nice, but I am a big girl, so I don't look pregnant. I was 16 weeks yesterday. I have an appointment with a midwife (not sure which) on Monday, hopefully will hear the heartbeat, if not, will have some definite anxiety. But have been feeling more and more movement. Not everyday, but sometimes several times a day. I have had a bit of anxiety today. I finally got medicaid (we don't have insurance, yet and the insurance we will have won't cover the midwife), but it caused not so desirable results. Dh just got a new job, about 5-6 weeks ago. We still qualify for medicaid for pregnancy (which is fantastic), but no longer qualify for food stamps. I know this is what we want, to make enough money to not need them, but it's still scary, when we've had them for 2 years I didn't have to ever worry about feeding my children. Maybe no one understands, but I feel scared.
And I've had good news and scary stuff with my ds. The good news, great really, is that he gained 3 lbs in the last 2 1/2 months. At his 15 month check up he had finally hit 20 lbs and was offically off the bottom of the chart. Then he got sick and lost half a lb, since then he's gained 3 and is back on the chart. Sure made me feel a lot better. BUt he has started when he gets hurt, holding his breath. Not intentional, but he does until he can't hold himself up. Yesterday I didn't pick him up in time (I was in another room) and he fell. When he's in my arms he goes limp. I'm not sure if he's actually passing out or not. I spent 20 minutes on the phone with the peds nurse yesterday and she asked a million questions. We decided it's not on purpose and he only does it when hurt, but not every tiem. Then today I was really watching closely and thinking a lot, I think it might only be when he hits his head, no matter how softly. And then I wondered, if it is only when he hits his head, could it be related to when he fell off the couch, landed on his face on the hardwood and was unconcious? We had to call 911 and he was fine by the time they got here, but could it be related to that? DO I need to call the ped back? I jsut don't know.
And as for find out the sex. I don't want to. We did with both before and I really really really want to be surprised this time. Dh doesn't, but I finally convinced him. Well now my grandma might be coming for Christmas. She will be 79 then. SHe has never seen an ultrasound and I told her I would wait for her to do it. But she is pressuring me to find out, she really wants to see it. So now dh is saying he wants to know again. Everyone I know is going crazy wanting to know. And it's driving me crazy.
And my breasts hurt. For those of you have breastfed a baby, you know how when your breasts get cold, it feels differently when there's milk, then when you aren't breastfeeding? Too tired to really find the words to explain, well anyways, I feel that when I get cold. It's not a really pleasant feeling.
And yesterday I talked to the receptionist at my midwife's office. She's really so much more than just a receptionist. I told her my concerns with the evil midwife and we talked about it. She made me feel better (she has an amazing ability to do that) and convinced me to give her one more chance, with an opne mind. She's going to tactfully find a way to give this midwife a headsup, without telling her I called (a big fear of mine) and gave me some tipes. Like to beat her to the punch, say I lost weight this week, didn't gain, did gian, whatever and me bring it up and put an end to it. SO we will see how it goes.
Gosh, sorry this is so long ladies.
