YAY Doula Sarah!
I just knew we'd be pregnant together! How wonderful! YAY!
There really are a lot of us here.
Nothing big happening here. We both have head colds (karl and I) and its awful. I had a special tea made up for me at the herbalist, a wellness tea thats safe for preg & nursing. Its nasty., lol
Its one of those mornings, house is grotesque, laundry is unspeakable, blah.
I read a lot yesterday, got my birth books in the mail. I also picked up the sears preg book because i want one that lists the medicines that are unsafe. The book itself, while it would probably have been facinating last time, is a big waste of money. I suppose it is for... less opinonated mothers. :LOL
I did get Adventures in Tandem Nursing, the new LLL book, and its alright. Ithink it would be great for anyone with doubts or fears about tandem nursing. We are pretty comfortable here and it spends a great deal of time discussing comfort levels and decision making.
Why is it everyone who learns i am still nursing in pregnancy tells me i have to eat a lot? I mean, i have *no* problem gaining weight in pregnancy, and i eat a lot. I doubt i will have any trouble growing these babies.
We still arent done deciding about prenatal care. We have one more birth center to tour, and 4 or 5 midwives coming over this week to interview. Though we are birthing on our own, i need prenatal care from someone, as I am rh negative and need a rhogam shot (only after the birth of a positive babe) . Oh, yes, and dh really really wants to see if we can learn the sex.
I have not had any cravings yet, those usually kick in after the 13th week for me, and involve oranges and grapefruits. and other healthy foods. Though i often craved fish. No ice cream for me this time around, I am not really looking to gain 65 lbs again! But we have a healthy organic diet full of great fats and yummy foods.
