One of the results of the current heatwaves (more days above 30 degrees C than not!!!), is that I had an utter panic while in cottage country, when I got it into my head that I had allowed myself to get too hot. And I think we all are aware of the dangers of getting too hot.
So into the lake I went. Where it was a little too cool, and a little funky because of the heat and wind that day, and another swimmer picked up a leach. Where I decided that the shock to the system of the cool water would hurt the Babe.
So, out of the lake. Where I proceed to unload my irrational fears on my husband, and worry the hell out of him.
Time passes. Like 30 minutes. When I realize the insanity of my paranoia, explain said paranoia to my husband, and cancel the panic trip to the nearest emergency room (70 minutes away).
Oy. This is a long 40 weeks, isn't it?
Also, advice needed:
- What is the deal with buying a Doppler in Canada? Are there regulations? Where did you buy yours? Why am I embarrassed to ask my doctor about it? Should I buy one? Is the $130 one on eBay worth it? - perhaps an email response would be good here...
- What on earth can I do to deal with this gas? Bloating and pain unending...
- I think I am feeling movement, but it may well be the gas. Is there any possible way that I am feeling those first flutters at only 13 weeks?
Finally, YAY for baby Natalie. Hooray!!!!
