Flow Murmur

Had another appointment today. After my episode I had on Christmas, my OB thinks I have what's called a "Flow Murmur". It's nothing serious, but it makes my heart race and skip beats. It will go away when I'm not pregnant and don't have all the extra blood. Otherwise everything went well, and I go back on January 18

Still getting ready for Christmas, and getting bigger and more uncomfortable. Sleeping is kind of a pain right now, but I'm managing. Hannah is getting excited about having a baby sister, and she talks to her and touches my belly a lot. It's very sweet. I'm hoping she'll adjust well when she does get here, and not regress with her potty training, which she has done amazingly well with :)

Potty Training

I am cautiously optimistic. Today I instituted something new for PT. A sticker chart, new undies, and cookies. So far she's been in undies for 2 hours before nap and peed 3 times, 2 of which she told me she had to go! I'm proud of her no matter which way this goes, but I have to say I'd love to know if diaper days are numbered.

It all comes back

My Doctors appointment Friday was fine. I'm officially up to 15lbs, and the heartbeat was easy to find and sounded good. I'm still uncomfortable sleeping, but I'm certain that isn't going to get better for a few months yet.The mommy instincts are still strong. Last night at Hannah's friends birthday party, Kat handed me Magdalena and she fussed a bit, but it all comes right back. So much that she fell asleep with almost no trouble :) I'm very much looking forward to having our own bundle here. But not yet, since Steven has insisted we not think about all the things we need to get for her until after Christmas. So I'm anticipating a big trip to Target sometime in January :)

I'm officially uncomfortable, and I think it's because this little one is so much lower than Hannah was. Sleeping is getting difficult, and sometimes walking or standing up is a chore. Otherwise I still don't have much to complain about. I'm still very active chasing Hannah around and doing almost all the normal things I was doing before. The only thing I really can't do is give Hannah a bath, which I think has more to do with the shower doors than my actual belly. Today I have exactly 3 months until my EDD. Who knows what will happen by then, but only time will tell. Friday (Dec 7) I have another doctors appointment, and I'll have to get my Rhogam shot. Yuck

A late update

Hannah has finally had her EI evaluation, and she requalified under expressive/receptive language with a 25%+ delay, as was required. She is doing much MUCH better than she was this time last year, but according to the Speech/Language Pathologist, she still has a long way to go to catch up with her peers.Hannah is anxious for Christmas this year, and I'm so excited also. She will have so much fun and really "get it" this year. We had so much fun decorating the tree yesterday, and she just loves the train that goes underneath.She's also starting to understand about her baby sister. She knows where she is, and that she'll be coming out very soon. She was almost ecstatic when I told her that she can hold her baby sister when she gets here.
