Back into it straight away – We got home Friday night from the baby moon and that Saturday we were back into replying to work emails, got the nursery (and other rooms) carpet laid, I had a baby shower and Matt build Little Prince a wardrobe!
We opted to get carpet over the hardwood floors because it just feels so much more homely, and man we are so happy we did!! Looks great!!!
UNTIL – the toilet next to the nursery started leaking into the room causing half the room to become absolutely soak (insert mega sad emoji face) we originally thought the dog went to the toilet in there (not something either of them ever do but being new flooring thought maybe it was) it got progressively worse and worse so we decided to rip up the carpet and it looked like Little Prince had his own swimming pool in his room.
I just couldn’t deal – I’m sure I cried a lot this week.
The leak is fixed, the underlay is fucked and the carpet survived so all in all it could have been MUCH worse but try telling that to a pregnant lady…
Thursday came around and we had our hospital appointments, one with the ob and one with the physician.
They were actually running on time today compared to last time which was nice, the ob although lovely made me feel like cattle just trying to get the appointment over and done with so she could get to the next person, it felt very rushed and left me feeling over whelmed even upset because she didn’t even get the Doppler out to listen to little princes heart beat (something I love hearing!) – feel like I had questions then I didn’t even get a chance to say or remember before I knew it I was shipped off to the nurse for my whopping cough vax.
Next was the physician – again on time – a little more slower paced but because I’m feeling over it was a pretty stock standard in and out appointment – the Ob came back in during this appointment as she remember she hadn’t listened to the babys heart (I knew she was suppose to – I should really learn to speak up in situations like this – I’m working on it!) babies heart was 140 and man it was just so beautiful to heart that little beating noise.
You just always hope you’re giving your baby a good home but you just don’t know whats going on in there and at times it can be a little scary – have I felt the baby move today?? Little thoughts like that will pop into your head and worry you – I guess as a mum this feeling won’t stop until the little guy is…. Well I guess it wont stop lol.
I also asked about my placenta – she said it was a pretty common thing (yes I knew this thanks to google) and don’t to be to worried about it and continue on doing what I have been doing and they’ll be able to check it out in the next growth scan.
We celebrated the strong heart beat by buying the little man a cot!!!
It has been 2 weeks now since my iron infusion – the lady said it will take about 2-3 weeks for it to kick in and TBH I don’t feel any difference – I felt good while I was away but I was tanning, eating and sleeping so I just put it to being relaxed – since being back I admit I haven’t had to nap as much but no dramatic changes…..
Stay Strong & Stretch,
