Week 30: Healthy Yet?

As is typical this time of the year, week 30 was incredibly busy! And yet with that said, there were many fun things keeping us busy too. A cookie exchange, a great early birthday dinner with my husband, an evening chatting with a good friend, and so on. Last Wednesday, the kids had their flu shots and let me say that everyone was going to know it by the end of the day. Wow - bad moods! I babysat a few times and will do so again this week. Fortunately, these last two days, Benjamin has actually been rather happy. It's amazing as I mentioned in the last post he's been pretty miserable the last month or so with one thing after another. I almost forgot about the happy, sweet little kid wrapped up inside of him. So that's definitely a blessing.

Speaking of health, I'm guessing all that snot finally took it's toll. Hannah now has double pink eye. She's on antibiotics and should no longer be contagious after lunchtime today. Now we're praying Benjamin doesn't get it... that won't be fun!

Friday was my midwife appointment. To my great surprise, even after Thanksgiving, my weight gain has slowed down! I only gained 1.5lbs in two weeks... better than I have been. So I'm at 27.5lbs total gain so far. It was a pretty short visit. Everything looked, sounded and measured fine. Back again next week.

I'm continuing to deal with the back spasm a bit. Could be better, could be worse. I guess I need to be grateful I'm not bedridden or anything.

Until next time...
Take Care,
Terra
