Just a quick update, for now.

I'm having some medical troubles related to my pregnancy, and I'm trying really hard not to stress out about them too much. First it was the cervical lesions, then the placental lakes, now we're concerned about Intra Uterine Growth Restriction. I'm waiting to make a Dr.'s appointment so I can get another ultrasound to measure babys growth rate. Until then all I can do is stress and try and keep calm.

I also have a swollen hip joint, making simple activities like walking and cooking and cleaning really painful. Let's not talk about sleep, I haven't had more than three consecutive hours in quite a few days. I'm considering it training for when the baby comes.

Other than my physical self, my life is so, so wonderful. My husband is really stepping up to help, loading and unloading the dishwasher, cooking the meals and putting the kiddo to bed in the evenings. I Skype with my mom regularly and she's planning to fly down here and help me out when the baby is due. I've created a cleaning docket and some checklists of chores to do to help me stay on top of the housework. I'm nesting, hardcore!

Now my quick update is over. I have to go ice a cake.

I'm glad your life is wonderful aside from the physical issues you've been dealing with.

Best wishes<3

Thanks a lot! I'm trying to keep it positive, and not using LJ as a dumping ground for all my negative thoughts. I sometimes worry that I'm presenting an image of myself as a whiny bitch because the unhappy stuff gets written down more.

I don't think that about you at all! Just write whats on your mind

I'm so sorry you are having issues, and hope the pain (and worry) gets better. It's impossible not to worry, but maybe your mind can be eased after your doctor's appointment.
