Keeping busy

Thursday, August 07, 2014

I ate almost that whole watermelon by myself. I love this time of year so much good fruit in season. The white nectarines are soooo good and so cheap right now YUM! I broke 200 on the home scale this morning which is not terrible considering I broke it on the doctor scale almost 4 weeks ago and little dude is 2 lbs or close to it this week. Been staying away from meat which seems to be helping. When I start eating it, I feel like an avalanche of fatty food starts becoming my craving. Funny my friend who is pregnant with her 4th, her 3 other kids are boys. She craved steak and burgers with all of them. Now pregnant with a girl, the thought of red meat makes her nauseated.

I started pricing doula's this week. In my area they run between 350-700. I donno how I can justify that on how much I am making. I feel like I should pay for it myself. Scott told his coworker I was thinking of getting one and her response was "Wow Julie must really not trust u". Really? Coming from someone who scheduled her first c-section without even attempting to go into labor? Any idea what a doula even does before you make my husband feel kicked down and look like an a$$hole.

I hit my dance class this morning. Steps have been much better this week. Having a spurt of energy this week I guess. Gotta take it when I can get it. I went and checked out the synagogue last week for the baby shower. Sadly it was much less impressive inside than outside. It seemed like it was gutted and made into a church over the years. Simpler that way, just gotta find a place for the dogs to go for the day.

my 25 week pic from last Saturday after WerQ and my new pair of vibrams

    Aww that's terrible that woman said that to Scott. It has nothing to do with trust. Laboring is a huge emotional toll for one person to handle. I could see it with Bryan. He was under as much pressure as i was because I relied solely on him. If you find a doula you are comfortable with I think it would be a tremendous help. Most of the nurses I had didn't help me through the labor like I thought they would. Maybe it will be different in BN. You will still need Scott so much and I am sure he knows that :-). Hehe, maybe boys crave iron. I really craved spinach which like meat has lots of iron. Course I ended up being anemic so maybe that is why I craved it too, lol.

    Maybe you can do a kickstarter to raise money for the doula.

    I love watermelon too! Sadly I tripped and fell running on Sunday and broke a bone in my hand, so its in a cast. I can do a lot with one whole hand and a thumb and 2 fingers on the other, but haven't attempted cutting a watermelon yet, nor convinced the wife to. A week without watermelon, oh my!:)

    I couldn't even stand to hear the word hamburger when I was pregnant. I would throw up thinking about it. And I had a boy! LOL! I ate no beef while pregnant.

Great picture!! I love the new vibrams!!
