Lissa – hope the BP issue resolves itself – you don’t need that stress! I’ve often wondered what mine would look like if I took it immediately after commuting in rush hour traffic...
Liz – I am also considerably nauseous after eating these days. I’d say it started around week 26 or so. I have to eat only small meals. Or, rather, I keep telling myself that’s what I have to do! Sticking to it is another story. Also, when we were in our 2 bedroom condo when DD was born, the bed in the baby’s room came in handy for when our moms stayed over (which they did a lot the first few weeks because I ended up with a c-section.) The couch would have been ok too, but the bed was nice to have so that I could nurse in the living room (I actually really enjoyed my 2 and 4am private TV watching time those first few months) without disturbing anyone.
Luv – glad to hear you had the Mother’s Day plan you wanted! I hope it was wonderful and that no one gave you a hard time. Everyone else who celebrated – I hope you had a great day. I, for one, learned that I really need to have actual plans on Mother’s Day. We didn’t make any firm plans and I ended up sucked into the “trying to get DD to nap” void for almost 3 hours. It was miserable. I think she’s at a transition stage between 2 naps and 1. She was taking one like clockwork around 10 or 11am every morning, but now she won’t. So I kept thinking, “She’ll fall asleep any second…” for 2+ hours.
CLC – I’m curious, did your OB say why you should call if you have >4 BH in an hour? I think during the last 10 weeks during my first pregnancy, I had one whenever I walked anywhere, so depending on the day I could easily have more than 4 per hour. Just curious if they said why (of course, I can’t remember how far along you are, I’m sorry… if you’re close to your due date, maybe that’s why).
AFM, I had my first work phone call in a VERY long time that made me cry today. So embarrassing. I deal with lots of unhappy people, many of them venting at me, and I can almost always deal with it fine. So now my boss is tiptoeing around me. Luckily, he was great about it and took the call from me when I couldn’t talk to the guy anymore. I hate that feeling, though, after you’ve cried. It’s hard to shake the rest of the day.
