Well, maybe one exciting thing - I think the fancy ($42 is my co-pay! WTF!) prenatal I'm taking is working wonders. My symptoms are greatly reduced - the 'stool softeners' and the B12 (I think?) have really eliminated the major issues I was having - constipation and mild nausea. I have chosen to decide that is the reason that I'm feeling so good - and not that something isn't going right because I have less symptoms. Positive thinking.
Yet grateful for the ultrasound I have scheduled for this coming Tuesday.
I'm also less exhausted - but I'm being careful not to do silly things that tire me out - and have been trying to go for a walk each day - which seems to make a big difference.
The one thing that has been occupying my thoughts lately is childcare. I'm definitely going back to work after maternity leave. But there are so many options - have someone come into my house, in-home daycare, or the big child care centers. I see the pros and cons for each - I'm just not sure yet what is best for US. I do know that where ever we do go, that it needs to be close to my house. We have a child care center in my office building, but about once a week I work from home - and it's a 30 minute drive to my office building. Plus - I would like Aaron to have to option of picking up and dropping off if needed - and my office building is in the exact opposite direction than how he drives to work.
I know this all seems early to be thinking of this - but I've been warned by other mothers that waiting lists on some of the 'better' places is ridiculous.
