Interesting baby fact / Baby is the size of: ripe apricot
Upcoming appointments: today was the NT scan, Monday midwife appt, Tuesday physical therapy (pelvic floor specialist check-in, went to pt postpartum and it was super helpful! Thinking some core work might help to prepare?)
How are you feeling: Nausea is possibly starting to subside? But now I'm feeling so out of shape walking up stairs. AND still tired. I might pull out the pillow tonight.
Rants / Raves: I think I'm starting to show a little. I've told a few people at work, but I really don't feel like telling people-- Idk, I don't like the attention of sharing news like that? I work at a high school, so there would be a lot of people to tell and I don't see everyone at the same time, so that's weird too. So, I will probably just do a Facebook announcement to spread the word and let others talk lol. Also, I'm not looking forward to everyone saying "how are you feeling?" And "how are you doing?" In that weird tone that they don't say to everyone else, ya know?
Questions: I'm getting to a point where I have trouble getting up when my toddler wants me to sit on the rug with him... for bedtime, we usually read a book on the rug. We have a rocker, but he's getting kinda big to sit on my lap. So I guess my question is, any suggestions for managing bedtime as it gets a bit harder? I've been sitting on a step stool for bath time-- is that going to get harder?? Should I start preparing MH to help out more with bedtime routines?
GTKY: What is the most irrational superstition you have? Hmm. I'm definitely wary of full moons. Sometimes we check the calendars at work.
