Back from my computer free weekend!! It was a good thing, really, to kind of escape from technology a bit and relax reading my doula books. As soon as I'm done with my internettin' this morning I have to finish my pretest for the training and then in two weeks the workshop will be done!! The weather around here isn't so nice...cold and all weekend it was off and on drizzly, so we didn't get to go apple picking. But maybe next weekend
missed Jon this weekend, she kept asking where dada was, when he was coming home, or pretending that different noises she heard in the house (mostly from our cats) were from him. And every time we came back in the house she yelled out, "Hi Dada!....Dada not home." It was cute but also makes me feel bad for the four days we'll both be pretty much gone next month, when I'll be at the Bradley workshop for very long days and Jon will be in Tennessee for a conference.
Hopefully she won't get too sad!
I have an appt. with my midwife today, which I'm really looking forward to. It'll be interesting to see how my uterus measures there, my guesstimate is 19-20 weeks, but I'm only 16 weeks along. And I plan on asking her about exactly what conditions she doesn't deliver, such as breech, etc., so I can be as prepared as possible. I'll also tell her about the Bradley and doula trainings, should be cool and perhaps she can link me up with some births!! Also, starting at 20 weeks of pregnancy I can come to a social she has at her house every Monday night with all her clients, and that should be really fun to meet more homebirthers here. I'll definitely give an update after my appointment!
Oceanone, so glad that the bleeding has stopped and you have a diagnosis that can heal itself...I would also agree that if you have placenta previa it may well resolve itself in the third trimester, your uterus will have so much extra to grow then that there will be plenty of room for the placenta to "move" to. By the way, did you end up weaning? How's your little one handling all the excitement of a new sibling, and does he have any gender predictions? Peri had consistently said I had a boy in my belly until this week, and now she's talking about how she'll have a new sister
: It's so fun to share this with her. OH! and we watched some birth videos...the first one she thought was a little scary because the mamas were hurting, but the second one she was really impatient for them to show babies actually coming out...
Gina, glad your bleeding has stopped as well!!
Dancinggirl, Hope that you find some peace with the risk that the ultrasound revealed. Keep in mind, though, that it is overwhelmingly unlikely, at a mere 1% chance...And it's great that you are having a girl and don't have to deal with the circumcision issue!!! Some conflicts are just so much nicer to avoid...
Take care everyone else!!
