I’m bummed because I had to come home early from work today. I slept like a rock last night, woke up feeling great, ate a solid bfast (brown rice cereal and 2 eggs)
and was in the weight room when I started to see spots. After drinking some lemonade and splashing cold water on my face, I almost passed out. Since I still felt overheated and clammy, my supervisor got the rest of my morning classes covered so I could come home to rest and feel ready to teach Zumba later.
This has only happened a few times, and the midwife said it’s from all of the extra blood that my body is creating and pumping. So I’m at home, chilling, so I can go back in a little while. It’s weird to come home when I’m not sick, just feeling wonky, but better safe than sorry.
Anyone else experience pregnancy dizziness? Remedy ideas? A friend gave me some salty sesame twigs which seemed to help.
With the holiday week, it’s been really exciting to think that next year, she’ll be almost a year old. On Thanksgiving, we saw my baby cousin Tucker, who was born last December. It was so fun to see him in his little walker/jumper, sprinting down my uncle’s hallway, my cousin walking him around in the Ergo, and him covering his face in whipped cream. That’s going to be us next year, and I can’t wait.
Since nesting mode has kicked in with a vengeance, we’re working on all of the house projects and last-minute to-dos before she arrives. The painters are here today to fix our Easter egg rooms, and the nursery is about 90% done.
A question that was brought up in the last post:
“What if the second ultrasound is wrong, and it’s actually a boy?”
This is something that Tom and I (and the family) joke about every now and again. My Tata said that it was a boy, but with all of the Zumba shaking, I “shook his thingy off.” Thanks, Tata. Haha. We actually considered getting another ultrasound just to be super sure, but I really don’t want to get any extra ultrasounds at this point since I’ve had 4 already, and everything seems to healthy so far and according to schedule.
Things can be returned/exchanged.. we just want a healthy baby. Boy or girl, it really doesn’t matter. If the baby is indeed a “he”, we can buy new bedding and clothes- I’ve only washed the newborn – 3 month clothes and everything else still has tags intact and the receipts in an envelope.
Life’s more fun with surprises, anyway 😉
Did you find out the sex of your baby? Any situations where “he” ended up being a “she” or vise versa? My mom and dad thought I was a boy until I was born. My name was supposed to be Bryce….
