Note to Self

1. 6 pieces of watermelon before bed is really NOT A good idea for a pregnant lady. No matter how bad you want it. (It results in waking up MANY times to go pee....)

2. When you are married to a soon to be dr, he needs to know the details from dr appointments. At my appointment this week my dr told me I either have to get my iron up before the week's over or else i have to get iron shots..... apparently it is "dangerously low". First thing Regan asked when I told him was What was the number. I really didn't think to check that. (And no wonder I've not been feeling so hot lately.)

3. I am in fact getting old. I went to a kindergarden information night this week. I will have a child in school. Strange.

4. It's okay to make pancakes for supper when your hubby is out of town. The kids like it. It's just easier all around.

Pancakes are great for supper even when hubby is home! LOL!
I hope you are able to get your iron levels up and start feeling better. What clinic are you going to? I just switched to the Low Risk and had my first appt today.
I'm up all night going to the bathroom no matter what I eat or don't eat before bed! So annoying!!!
Hope you are doing well. How many weeks are you at now?
Let's hang out soon! When are you free?

Rhonda, are you posting in the future? I thought it was Wednesday. Good luck pumping the iron. I'm regular iron pill popper, and let me you, it gives me just that extra kick of energy. As well, I've given up the advise red meat sparingly.

I make pancakes for all meals. I've been known to make choc chip ones (before I quit chocolate) for a snack. And umm you are just slightly not even old at all thank you very much!

Good luck with the iron situation. I hated taking those pills. They totally messed up my body. I just stick to red meat these days!! Good luck!

I hear you on the watermelon thing....but it is so dang good!
Pancakes are a favourite around this house for dinner, we have also been kown to have French toast..Hmm now that sounds good!
I too am counting down the days and I realized that I have just over 3 months to go...not too long at all and with summer right around the corner the baby will be here before we know it. I do hope you get feeling much better and soon!

interesting, my doctor sat me down to have the same talk with me yesterday. i need to pump up the iron or baby and i wont be getting enough oxygen. hope you get back to feeling better when all the greens kick in (spinach, broccoli etc).
i also love watermelon, i try not to get too much liquid into my system right before bed tho. peeing a million times at night is never fun. but watermelon is just sooooo yummy!

I hope you are able to get your iron levels up soon, R! Take care of you and baby. Yes - the years go by so quickly, don't they? I hope Alden - and you - enjoy the kindergarden experience.
