thanks for the update
I hear you about the exhaustion. When I was pregnant AND had a young child (lulu).... it was devestatingly exhausting. And there was a moment where i thought ... why, why, WHY did I do this?
For what it's worth, I found that Floradix was helpful. It gave me more energy and prevented anemia. It's an iron / b vit liguid made by a german company. I actually still take it.

I'm so excited.
Well, I think that we're going across the bay today... I hope the weather is OK. It is still freezing here!!
Hi Augustine... that's so exciting about the girl!! It'll be specially nice for Anna. There's something really synergistic about the energy of two little girls!
I didn't realize that you were a double-c section person like me. Didn't it suck? I'm just starting to do some work w/ a healer/ energy person. She said the energy in that area is totally wonked out. She thinks that's why I've thrown out my back (in the lower lumbar spine) and have sciatic pain. The energy ain't flowing right down there.
I never have done energy/healer stuff. But I was desparate. And after i saw her, my pain was so much less, for almost a week. Plus, when someone is practically clairvoyant like this woman, you tend to become a believer. For example, she was able to "see" that my coxxyx was broken!
OK must run... "incoming" children... must hide.
