Full Speed

AHHH! I feel like these next few days before Christmas are going to go by at full speed. There's so much going on and so much to do. Today I had lots of errands to run. Same thing tomorrow. And I'm getting my hair did tomorrow :) I just finished cleaning the house (thank God for heating pads because my back is killing me!) I wanted to get it all done, because now I don't think we're going to have extra time this weekend. Sadly, my husband's step-father's mother passed away today. So we have to go to the wake Friday night and then the funeral is early in the morning on Christmas Eve. And my husband's grandpa is in the hospital as of last night! AHH! So much going on. Just going to try and take it one day at a time. And then we are travelling later in the day on Christmas Eve and again on Christmas Day.

Also, I think I am getting a cold. The first one since being pregnant. I woke up with a sore throat and then I've had a dry cough all day. Nervous about this because I don't think there's much I can take for it :(

Today I went and picked up a big bag of baby girl clothes (and a bottle of Dreft!) from my friend Danielle! She had some that her daughter wasn't wearing anymore and she so generously donated them to me! :) They're really cute, too. Samantha is going to be one well dressed little girl :)

I'm finding myself SO starving lately and it's beginning to scare me a little. It's probably the worst hunger I've felt so far. Is this normal? I mean, I'll eat a meal and be hungry again a half hour later. I'm so sick of eating! Sometimes I really don't want to eat but I can't ignore the hungry feeling because it makes me so sick. And I can't go to bed feeling the least bit hungry or I can't sleep!

Oh, thank you all for the comments on my baby movement questions yesterday. Thankfully, I started feeling her again about a half hour after I posted that!

So, I signed onto Yahoo to check my email and I saw this news story. Oh. My. Goodness. Poor baby..or babies??

I went through stages of being really hungry too. I think it corresponds to the baby's growth spurts (yay!). I needed to constantly have small snacks around the house for those moments! Maybe try some toast with peanut butter before bed? I carried Luna bars in my purse at all times and I also drank a lot smoothies. Hang in there momma!

I was hingry all the time once it started. I got so sick of eating too. I had odd food aversions, too, so it was just annoying.

hey love, i was super sick recently and went to the dr's and there are some type a antibiotics you can take that are perfectly safe for the baby. it is up to you but in my mind it was better i as healthy rather than being sick and dying!! sorry about the funeral and your pa. but MERRY XMAS!
