Had my midwife appointment yesterday. All is well with Ferncliff and with me. My BP is still LOW (106/60), my iron is finally climbing (over 11 now!), and everything measured great with my belly--29cm!
The baby had a heart rate of 160 and was head down. I felt Ferny do a huge somersault on Wednesday and since then have only been getting kicks up high. Hopefully the baby will stay head down, though there is still plenty of time for things to change. ]
I am feeling great. For the past three nights EJ has only gotten up once a night (usually because he is cold). He has decided that 5am is the perfect time to start his day, but he has been sleeping hard and soundly and taking a 2 hour nap every day so I can't complain. After 3 nights of sleep AND taking naps I am starting to feel human again and the bags under my eyes are fading. For those of you who know about the ongoing sleep struggle you may be thinking --what did she do?? Well, we switched to cloth diapers overnight. He was already in cloth all day with me and only wore disposables at his nana's and at church and overnight. I started thinking maybe they just feel too different and he doesn't like it. So we switched to cloth overnight with about 5 extra absorbant pads in there. Voila! A sleeping baby. Not sure if it is the only reason, but since it is working we are sticking with it!
