Mama-in-May!! (i'm a newbie, too...)Angela
- I am SOOO excited to see you!
Dear threadkeeper is really being put to task today! (Thanks to you, too!)
Thank you to everyone who threw out some ideas and just validated my reality that at the moment, i just don't feel so fantastic. Today, I felt pretty good after a noon-time walk and a cheese quesadilla for lunch, but i'm starting to go down-hill (and I hear DH kicking around in the kitchen...getting nervous that I have to eat). ugh. But as i keep reminding myself that I'm growing a little somebody in there, it helps keep it in perspective!
My possible midwife (still meeting new ones) actually said that the prenatals may cause some of the sickness! (ack!??!) But i am continuing to take them because I feel like it balances out the finicky eating habits. They contain the whole B spectrum, the folic acid, of course, and a bunch of other stuff.
Anyway, thanks again for the responses - i will try to stay calm and take it easy - Judy - i can totally see my dh finding me in tears of tiredness and to-do frustration sometime soon; i can be a little bit intense about the to-do list
...and I ECHO the "we were waiting to be more financially ready" ladies. I'm so glad, in the end, that we just decided to go ahead and try because it took us six months and I was really terrified that it was going to take us a lot longer. Now, it's just a matter of creative budgeting and making it happen. I'm better about it some days than others, so it's always reassuring to see other humble-income families making it work.
Anyway, i took up too much space here...
have a great night!
