And This Is Why We Induced
When I went to the doctor's on November 16 for a check up, my blood pressure was 160/110. Not so good. Hence the immediate comment from my OB of "guess where you're headed?".
I went in today for a 2 week check in, and my blood pressure? 118/68.
Clearly, my cardiovascular system? Not so thrilled with pregnancy. Motherhood, on the other hand, not such a problem. I'll take that.
We are doing remarkably well around here---Peebs nurses well (after a two day freak out period where I was either eating something that didn't agree with her, or the milk was coming out like Old Faithful and it was just a leeetle too much to deal with), sleeps for at least one 3 hour stretch at night (nice!) and generally acts like a fairly normal newborn. Bean has been fighting a cold, so I've kept her home for a few days. While on the one hand it's hard to wrangle two of them all day, it's rather easier than trying to get everyone out the door with even a passing nod to punctuality.
I'm managing a shower about every three days, but no one has yet to complain about the stench, so I'll push this envelope as long as necessary. One day, perhaps I will get to take a long leisurely bath all by myself with much unguents from Lush or similar. Perhaps.

perhaps you'll get some such gifts for the holidays, in fact. the bath salts fairy likes to visit this time of year.
