And suddenly I have no energy to deal with it. The nesting is coming to a screeching halt. I am officially in my third trimester now and I swear it isn't mental, but overnight things got more difficult. It is hard to bend down, it is impossible to shave my legs normally, and my back, hips, butt ache when I do much more than lay down. And, actually, they ache even when I lay down. It isn't unbearable (yet), but I can tell that it is quickly getting more difficult to do things. And that pisses me off. Especially when I have a guest room completely full of CRAP WITH NO HOME. Maybe the nursery would look cute with a giant teetering tower of photo albums in one corner.
Becca did well in her new bed. She would have slept through the night, except for a major coughing fit that brought out FREAK MOM. I went in there with the thermometer, a drink of water and some cough medicine and totally woke her all the way up to get her to take the medicine. She was grumpy and crabby about that, but did finally (after an HOUR of coughing and crying intermittently) manage to go back to sleep. She didn't get out of her bed until after the second time we told her it was too early to get up (it was before 7 a.m.) I am not sure how to deal with the early hours when we used to just turn on her light and dump a pile of books in her crib. She would entertain herself for another 30 minutes. I guess we don't have that luxury anymore! Shit.
And, now I think she has pink eye in BOTH eyes. But the nurse said it is likely viral and just has to run its course. But, it looks like I punched her in the eye or something and I'm scared to take her out in public!
Baby #2 is doing fairly well. Actually, it is doing very well except for the heart still being "thickened," which means it is like a muscle that was been "bulked up." No one will tell me with any specificity how long it takes for bulked up muscles to return to normal size. They say the heart is functioning normally, which is good. But I still feel a little nervous. All the other symptoms of anemia have resolved themselves and I don't have to back for an ultrasound again for two weeks. Woot.
