I'm back! Had a rather stressful weekend with my mother and sister
: which is too bad, definitely exaggerated by the fact that my mother preferred to make a pg lady sleep on the floor than stay in a hotel that would have been billed to her office, where she stayed the night before! (my sis just moved into her new place and doesn't have any furniture). Despite my clear request that I wanted & needed to be on a mattress, we all still ended up on the floor because my mom & sis are too frugal
(cheap!) I'm all for voluntary simplicity, but really!! Rant over.
We saw our midwife yesterday. Good to see her, we like her...the student midwife mostly dealt with us and she is very sweet but it was a bit dissapointing...good reminder that we need to get to know other midwives in the practice too. Couldn't hear the heartbeat but at only 12w4d I'm not surprised, plus I'm not super skinny which is supposed to make it harder. We'll try again at our next visit in 4 weeks. It's also kinda weird to go from super monitored & medicalized conception to super laid back, hands off midwife. I prefer the latter, but it's still an adjustment, kwim?
Thanks for the belly compliment, sunbaby
I'm on training at work for the next few days so my computer access is sadly restricted... I'm sleeping a bit better (since the floor incident
) and did wake up at 5 am today, but after sleeping a solid 7 hours!
Jessikate--good info about your car challenges. We have a very small fuel-efficient car that we strongly hope will work well for our new little bean, but I can see how it won't work for more than one. (we're already unsure about lack of space). Glad you found something that works for you!
about your work troubles!!! What horrible timing! And what extra pressure on you not to spill the beans (unless they already know). I hope it is resolved quickly with minimum stress for you.
Seren-so glad your little nephew is getting better!
: congrats to you! How exciting!!
'talk' to you all again soon.
eta: I think I might be feeling some little flutterings...it certainly woke me up this morning as I was lying there thinking could this be? could this be? Not sure....but maybe....
