Today an ultrasound to check for growth post influenza.
I got to see the baby's hands, thigh bone, all the chambers of the heart,
baby was doing "practice breathing" the diaphram going up and down.
The baby's head is back up in my ribs however, changed since tuesday. This baby
is a mover for sure, not crazy, not violent thrashing around, just lots of moving.
The midwife says to have Joe talk to the baby and tell him/her to turn around, to play
music down by my pelvis- that baby's will follow it.
I feel like my body is telling me to slow down, my feet hurt and my back is so tired.
Work was heavy today, a baby not ok, crash c-sections, and lots of homevisits and I am
seriously wiped. Wondering if i can make it physically and emotionally through 5 more weeks
of work. Its gnarly for me to admit that maybe i can't do something, to feel like I'm letting my co-workers down if i leave early or don't work as much up until the end. I am learning all sorts of stuff about myself this pregnancy some stuff that i like, some that i don't. Carol, my midwife says that there are no better teachers than our children for us, this baby is starting already and we haven't even met yet.....wow.
