i'm going with --jaqueline girl, heather girl.
i've been avoiding the virginia coverage too. i wasn't online or in front of the tv yesterday so it was pretty easy. we'll see about today when i'm sitting at my compy all day.
ob visit this morning. 3 lbs in 2 weeks
: i'd like to credit one pound to my danskos...which i have not been wearing at recent visits. they weigh a lot right?
in 2 weeks i get the lovely group b check. getting isaac to say obstetrician is pretty funny
i'm having an overwhelming urge to 'get ready' for baby. it still seems early but i'm going with it. i bought a pack of tiny sposies and a laundry basket yesterday. i'm ready to dig baby clothes out of the basement. and i need to go buy some newborn size prefolds. and i think that is about it
our weekend was pretty mellow. sunday i visited a friend who has terminal cancer. she's 37 and has a 6 year old daughter
it was a fine visit and not as depressing as i was expecting. i just don't know if i'll see her again. they said she'll be lucky to make it to christmas. she lives in england and was visiting her mom in salem. it is hard to even imagine what it would be like to be in her shoes. isaac had a lot of fun and keeps telling me he went to a party because there were also a 3yo girl, a 5 year old boy and the 6yo girl. and it is very much a 'grandparent's house' with lots of toys and a giant yard. and lots of aunts and uncles to entertain kiddos. isaac got to try tball and golf
as far as mama angst....i hope i am moving into a phase with more focus on being mama and less work. but there isn't really any way for me to predict what my 'satisfaction' level will be kwim? i'm a little scared about being mama to a newborn and an extremely energetic 3 yo. i'm hoping it is better (the overall life balance thing). i fear the constant neediness feeling of an infant coupled with the demands and acting out part. i am probably worst-case scenario-ing it in my mind to get ready for it though. at work we are having a meeting on thursday to figure out what we are willing to commit to in terms of contracting to do projects. so i should get an idea of what i plan to take on over the summer/fall. i have to keep working a bit. i hope the work is minimal and just enough to provide a distraction and semblance of adult-life.
very jealous about the hawaii trip claudia
: i wish we had a tropical vacation in our future. i love the sun
sarah - when you are done with school what type of schedule do midwives work? is it the typical nurse 3 12's schedule? it is always hard to hold out for the future but you are so close to being done and hopefully the actual working schedule will give you more time with lily. right now you are probably doing 6 12's a week
ok. i had no boob leakage at all being pregnant with isaac. and now i am having LEFTY boob leakage. this is not cool
