The people that play this little fruit/veggie game are on my last nerve. Sophie is an eggplant AGAIN!
Baby's lungs are going through some major developments these days, which (combined with the opening of previously plugged nostrils) means he's now able to practice inhaling and exhaling. The lack of air in your womb means every "breath" is filled with amniotic fluid, but hey -- it's progress.
I passed the gestational diabetes test!!! I was most definately worried, since I've been craving sweets like there is no tomorrow. I do, however, have low iron, so Dr. S has put me on a iron supplment. No biggie. I'll take that over a diet anyday.
Hard to believe that yesterday was officially 7 months pregnant. Truly doesn't seem possibly. I *think* next week=third tri...which is EXTREMELY hard to believe.
All is going well...nothing particularly neurotic to mention today. I am debating the H1N1 vaccine. That's my new research obsession. I'm not one to do something just b/c my dr says. I need to research a bit and form my own opinion. I did ask Dr. S on Monday what her opinion was of the vaccine and she quickly said "the CDC is recommending it" and then changed the subject. If she has an opinion, she obviously didn't want to share. Dan had a dr appt on Wed. I asked his opinion as well. He gave me a bit more insight and we talked about the fact that they are conducting clinical trials on pregnant women now, although the results may or may not be ready by the time the vaccine is released. He did say that his wife (OB maybe), had a pregnant patient with H1N1 whose baby was delivered early and then didn't make it. That made my ears perk up, although I have no idea how far along she was when she gave birth. He did reiterate what I've heard, which is that pregnant women who contract the virus have a much harder time fighting it off. Food for thought...
