Today I had another midwive appointment. It went really well and Jane talked to Ally about cutting the cord. I hadn't even thought about who would cut the cord but I think it would be a neat memory. Mike didn't want to cut the cord with Zoe so he can't imagine Ally wanting to. He is kind of grossed out by it. I am just excited by the possibility that Ally will get to see her sibling being born.
I saw some newborn pictures today and I got all teary because I am so ready to meet my baby! Soon....
I had low blood pressure again and I think it is worse in the evenings because I tend to feel like crap. Mike has been so helpful with cooking dinner and helping with the girls.
I have also started to think about weight loss and exercise again. My mom thinks I am nuts because I really should take some time to recover and get breastfeeding established. I agree with her but I worry about my self-esteem afterwards. I am going to do my best to not do anything except eat healthy until January. I have always like New Year's resolution regardless if I stick to them or not. So I think that will be a great time to go hard core again.
My self-esteem took a big hit last year with the miscarriage and some issues Mike and I were having. Being pregnant helps because a nice big round belly clearly shows that your body is doing something amazing. But afterwards....well...I need to work on it. I think good self-esteem is very important for succeding with a diet and is even more important for my kids. So wish me luck!
