Wanna see the quilting I’ve been doing? <— Yeah, there it is…a whole lotta nada. I cannot even wait for this pudge-o to be born. I have approximately two weeks and two days to go before an induction that hasn’t been scheduled yet. (Talking to Anthony) Unless you want to come early!!!! I have had more complications (skip reading if you don’t give a patootie)
1. Headaches so bad I’m seeing a neurologist and am now on beta-blockers
2. Gestational diabetes so I eat NO sugar, not even fruit until the afternoon…and I have a sweet tooth that borders a serious addiction
3. Pregnancy hormone related depression (that’s fun for the whole family until you get on happy pills)
So every day for the next few weeks I have doctor appointments (even on Memorial Day!) including another ultrasound in a week to check the growth. I had one 2 weeks ago, and already Anthony has HUGE cheeks and a double chin. The sonographer said “all of his weight is in his head!” That’s just what a mama wants to hear right before labor. Why not big knee caps, or larger than average toes? His HEAD!!!
Flora is doing wonderfully, and has regressed to pretending she’s a baby (climbing into the swing or bouncy seat) to the point where she is fake crying with a pacifier in her mouth (she doesn’t use pacifiers). I think she understands that a baby is coming, but I don’t know if she realizes he’ll be here for good. I don’t know if telling her “your nemesis is coming” is helping either.
Thank you to the folks that have been checking up on me. I appreciate the concerns. It’s more kindly than my family’s insistence that the baby get here sooner (like I have a say) or that it’s really hard to get vacation scheduled (so not my problem).
When I have news, I’ll share!
