Baby Update

I’m really doing quite well. The biggest concern has been staying cool enough. So far I haven’t had any morning sickness although there has been quite a bit of heartburn and I still have the dizziness.

Food Cravings: I’ve had several people ask me if I’ve had any strange food cravings. I would stand there on the phone (barefoot and pregnant in front of the stove) telling them “no, no food cravings at all” while I’m making myself another cheese and cranberry quesadilla. I eat at least one of these a day, sometimes more. I was actually thinking of writing up the recipe and posting it to my blog. It took a while for it to occur to me that this food pairing might be a little strange.

We went to the doctor last Monday and they gave us a couple books and a bag full of brochures, sent us on our merry way and told us to come back at the end of the month. I really thought they would have checked me out at that point, but aside from checking my blood pressure, they just asked a lot of questions about my health history. It was a little frustrating, but I guess it’s normal operating procedure to do the first real checkup at week 8 or later.

We are nearly at week 6, the baby is due April 8.

The Husband has been wonderful. Yesterday he sent me to my mom’s house so he could disinfect the house. He didn’t want me to breath the cleaning fumes. And he holds my hand when I cross the street. A little protective?
