Great idea Bobbi! Want to come and clean over here too? I'll make cookies.....
Best: well, I think I'm probably nesting! It's suddenly become imperative that I have as much as possible ready for the babe, and that I'm happy with the house
: I bought the babe some new undershirts yesterday, as I had given all of dd's little ones away, and I can't wait to have those washed and put away ready. The weather has cooled down a bit, and it's nice and breezy, so it feels great to sit outside and just let the air wash over me. I have persuaded the Oil company that they need to come and install the new furnace next week, NOT next month (our furnace was condemned just over a month ago...it was responsible for the CO poisoning that dd and I had last winter
), so I know that we will have safe, efficient heating in this winter and I won't have to rely as much on the woodstoves...thank goodness for the line of credit
: Oh, and my mum will be here in 2 weeks time....she's just coming for 10 days (which is the right amount of time for use to spend together) and it will be so great for her to spend some time with dd - who's very very excited about having decorated Grandma's room
Worst: Did I mention the line of credit????
: it's never a great time to have to spend $6000 on something...and it feels as though financially we are just going backwards - a little scary when there's another babe on the way. I have to meet with my psychiatrist (who is a *gem*, but that's a whole other thread!) about tapering off some meds, and adding in another to keep my mood as stable as possible postpartum - but there's just not a huge amount of data around, so it's hard to feel really comfortable. I suspect we'll be testing my breastmilk again so we can add some data to these studies...had to do that with dd too, and it actually felt really really good to know that hopefully more women would be able to breastfeed once the results were known.Still, it's a concern, and an unknown - and I really *suck* at not knowing
Overall though, I feel healthy, happy and blessed...and joyful to be surrounded by a magical dd, and a busy little babe kicking away under my ribs
