Seems that the yuck bug is ALL around these days. Mia had a throat virus about 10 days ago and then DH got it, and now I've been battling it for a couple of days. I am finally feeling better today, and I"m glad I wasn't more debilitated from it. Being 33 weeks pg and all (
), it's not like I need any help in the debilitating dept.
Speaking of being pg, things are going really, really well on that front. Baby is head down and has been for weeks and weeks. Lots of movement, strong heartbeat, anterior placenta (NO PREVIA
which might have been a convern due to my previoous c/s and the fact that I had some spotting in the early weeks), conservative weight gain (not that I've tried for this, but I think my metabolism has *really* changed since giving birth and nursing), no swelling. Overall, I feel really good. Feeling more and more fatigued as the weeks go by, but that's normal. Oh, I had some low iron levels, but started taking a supplement a week or so ago and it's helped a TON. So yeah... no issues and it looks like we are good to go for our homebirth!
Although, I must say, I love our midwife so much! At one point she thought baby boy might be breech and she was completely non-alarmist about it, and said, "oh, well, we can work on turning him around, but you can still easily have him at home. I've delivered lots of breech babies... it's no big deal." She's so great and I'm so happy to have found her. Her attitude really helps me instill confidence in myself. I am amazed at how healing this experience has been.She just views so many circumstances as "normal" and it helps me view myself and my body as normal and functioning, not some broken vessle that needs to be managed.
KK, hope you are feeling okay. I've been thinking a lot about you and your cysts and everything else you are battling. I can't even image what it's like to deal with that on top of being pg and having the two little one's. As with everything else, I guess you just get through it, huh? *sigh*
FF - Luke is looking so different in those more recent photos! So cool! Glad it's going well and he's "porking up" nicely.
Glad you are feeling better, too. I don't think there is anything worse than being barfy and having to care for a child. THE WORST.
I better run. I really need to get some things done today while DH is around to keep Mia outta my hair. I need to sort through baby clothes and diapers and figure out what I need for this babe. Oh my... is this the early stages of nesting?
