Up at 7am to drink the nasty glucose drink for my GD test. Now I am exhausted. C will be "napping" soon and so will I.
Notes from Tuesday's appointment with the midwife:
-Measuring 32.5 weeks; have been measuring big from the start - might be because this is pregnancy #2, could be the fibroid
-Heart rate 135
-Blood pressure 120/60
-Baby is most likely head down
-pinched nerve feeling might go away with prenatal massage (um who has time for that?!), a tennis ball, getting into a pool and floating around, a warm bath, getting off my feet/ putting my feet up, time
-I now have the paperwork to pre-register at the hospital
-I now have a few leads on some good doulas
In other news, my mom is sick. She has cancer and a compromised immune system, went in for chemo yesterday and they pretty much sent her home. Her platelets have dropped - her system is fighting something. And her blood pressure is through the roof. She is also in intense pain. We can't go see her on NYD like planned. She has to stay in bed and she can't be around people. I am worried about her. And so sad that she is going through all of this.
Partner A is cheffing in the new year - so C and I are on our own.
Happy 2010 to you all!
