Beansmomma: thanks for the reminder about iron. i ran out of my prenatals last week and keep forgetting to get some new ones. no wonder i've been craving meat lately! DH made a wonderful beef stir fry with this organic beef we get here that is honestly the tenderest meat I've ever eaten!
As for the cat, don't worry about it. My cat slept with me for all her 10 years when DD was born, and it was no problem. For one thing, she did not like a newborn and stayed away from that strange creature, lol. If she did try to get to close, she just got tossed to the foot of the bed (amazing how we were able to do this practically in our sleep, lol). So she basically knows to stay below tummy level. Though now DD and her get along well and sometimes kitty snuggles up against her. Honestly, dont' worry, it will be NO problem!
Katie, it gets worse before it gets better, hey? Big, big hugs to you...mirthfulmum said my thoughts to a Tee, so I'll just say to you... "what she said!".
So count me in as another "clueless" mama when it comes to BH, etc. Actually, now that someone described it as baby pushing against you, maybe I do know what they are, lol. But honestly I'm not sure!
OakEmber: have fun!!! enjoy your cabin and getting back to nature. I'm envious. DH has decided to buy a tent and sleeping bag and sleep in campgrounds as he makes his way across the country (driving our car and stuff back to Vancouver). Not only is it cheaper, but it's so nice this time of year to be in the outdoors. I actually, in a moment of insanity, suggested maybe we should all go together. Uh yeah..right. I have to pee twice per night, I'm gonna sleep on the ground when I'm so uncomfortable at night as it is, blah blah blah....anyways, I was just missing the outdoors so much!
I have to say, that as much as I really love being PG, and am already sad that this is probably my last, I'm also thinking "I am done"...I'm not sure I want to go through another pregnancy, lol. I think I'm getting too old for this!
