Our monthly check up lat week went smoothly. We were able to hear the heartbeat again, which is so reassuring. Our next appointment will be our 20 week sonogram- I can't believe I'll be halfway in 2 1/2 weeks! Time is passing so quickly.
I'm feeling much better, but the hot days are still challenging. Any day that is over 95 results in me going to be early with a headache and a queasy stomach. Don't worry, I'm hydrating myself so much I feel like I'm going to wash away. I have to confess, I'm still drinking my mochas :S Before getting pregnant I was drinking a grande double shot soy mocha with no whip cream everyday (made at home on our fabulous espresso maker!), so I'm feeling pretty good only having a tall 1/2 caff soy mocha w/ no whip cream 3 days a week. I'm so tired it's hard to not slip in a double shot- but I'm doing it. So if you call or stop by for a visit and I suddenly fall asleep, don't take it personally. As my midwife-mother-in-law has helped remind me- it takes a lot of energy to grow a baby. It's against my nature to "slow down and take it easy," but nature is forcing me to do so. I'm so frustrated that I can't make to yoga after work and I miss running so much, but I cannot find the energy to do any of it. It's been so hot in the evening and I've been so tired our poor dogs aren't getting their nightly walks. I think we're all suffering because of it too. I miss those walks! Once it cools down, I know we'll be back out on the canal, nightly...we're just STILL waiting for it to cool down. Today it's going to hit 100- again! I've heard this is going to be the last hot stretch for awhile. I hope so or I might lose my mind and run away to Alaska to cool off- or Colorado...I heard it snowed there the other day.
