Melissa, can your dh take any time off from work? Even a day or two (or a half day, two days in a row?) would be so helpful for you right now. Hopefully your back will get better faster if you are able to rest it.
Swelling: it seems less for me this pregnancy than my first two for some reason ?? Make sure to drink lots of water.
I know I must be getting far along because I am kinda dreading the coming week--it's so hard to find the energy to keep the house somewhat managed, feed and dress my two little ones, prepare meals, and make it out of the house for our regular outings. I promised myself I wouldn't get down on myself for having to slow down but it's still hard
I'm starting to worry about some of our June moms here. It seems there are quite a few of you who are having some rough times. Please keep us posted on any changes so this worry-wart Mama over here doesn't stress too much!
