Too exhausted to blog anything of importance, plus . . . where is everyone?!?! Man, I must be boring lately. (sigh) So, passed the three-hour glucose tolerance nightmare with flying colors. In fact, my numbers were so low, the nurse was "confused" on why I had to do it anyway. (I thought I would suggest she NOT ever say that to a pregnant woman again, but I bit my tongue.) With some adjusting and playing with numbers, it looks like I will be going out on "house arrest" at the end of the month. That means March will hopefully be spent resting and keeping my feet up, so to speak, and April will bring my boys to meet us. Cross fingers. My placenta is still being stupid and fully covering my cervix, so time will tell. Not to mention the lovely amount of contractions I have been having lately, so I am on weekly monitoring from here on out. Cervix is still proving to be a steel trap, thankfully.
Life is just . . . moving along. Look for upcoming posts on placenta encapsulation. Yep, folks, I am not the crunchiest of Moms, but I have contacted a local nutritionist/herbalist who is going to be drying out/cooking my placentas and encapsulating them for me to take after the delivery so *maybe* I can avoid the dark, dreaded PPD. I have talked to a few others who have done it and swear it made the difference in their recoveries emotionally and mentally and I am all about being healthy for my children, not to mention myself. Grossed out? I welcome your thoughts. My husband put his hands over his ears and left the room quietly stating, "Do whatever you need to do, dear." :)
