Update on me...
had an ultrasound yesterday since I am measuring so large (34-35cm at 29 weeks) and everything looks great! It's a boy!!!Yeah! We have 3 girls and 1 boy now, so everyone was happy with that news. Everyone thinks I am further ahead including my midwife and doctor, but I am not sure, so I guess time will tell, huh? I would love to be 2 weeks ahead, who wouldn't?
I have been feeling like hell and now have a UTI and constant contractions. My urine looks like hell-blood, leukocytes, protein, ketones, nitrites.
Plus I am seeing a cardiologist (fast pulse, shortness of breath, heart palpitations) and an endocrinologist (gestational diabetes-might need insulin). So that part sucks, I really hate going to doctors and wasting my whole day!!! i am realizing I am a terrible patient, I guess this is one of those lessons in my life!
My 15 year is throwing my a "surprise" baby shower next weekend and I amvery nervous about it. I can't stand not being involved and nervous what she will/will not do. But she really wants to feel grown up and plan this party, so I wouldn't get involved. Anyone else having a baby shower or a blessingway? I will have a small blessingway next month with just 3-4 friends. What kinds of things do you do at yours? I want to paint my whole belly with henna for the delivery! And do a bellycast.
Right now my kids are finishing up school and we are trying to decide what to do over the summer to keep busy. I can't stand being in the house all day with all of them, so we joined a local pool and will probably spend most of our time there. What's everyone else doing for the summer?
I have cut back on the amount of hours and births I will be doing until I feel better. No night births for now
But I know I won't be able to stay away, we have 35-40 ladies due this summer! And I don't want to miss all the fun!
