No news is good news-

Nothing new here to report. Achey, sore, nauseous... the norm. Still no more bleeding, I'm happy to report. Still not feeling movement or anything, but I suspect it'll be awhile yet. I may be feeling an occasional flutter but it's hard for me to say. My doppler offers little no relief. You'd think that getting farther along would make it easier to find the heart beat, but instead it's just gotten more difficult and most of the time I can't find it at all. I've pretty much given up on it.

Since I can move around a bit more, I've started going down stairs to make dinner at night. Sweet word, I'd forgotten how good my cooking was! My husband apparently didn't because he has to comment at every meal how it tastes "just like it used to." No matter how I tried to instruct him on my cooking, he always seemed to skew the recipes just enough that it was "off." He messed up mac and cheese one night... seriously. I love him, and I love that he tried his hardest... but that was some nasty mac and cheese. Even he didn't eat his. (*sigh*) It's been a long few months. And my potato-mushroom casserole last night was like heaven to me... yum.

I've been roasting in this heat wave, the humidity is absolutely killing me (the humidity is supposed to be like 80% all week- yeah). Yesterday's heat index was 98F, today it's 100F... and the hottest day of the week is yet to come (expected on Thursday). I'm already making plans to evacuate my house in the evening- not having a/c isn't usually so bad, but this past week has been awful. I read online that the heat pocket may be beginning to move east... which, uh, means it's going to move over me more than it already is. Yuck. Can't it just vanish and be done with it's bad self already? Needless to say, cold showers are my friend. And popcicles. My fan used to be my friend, but now it's just blowing hot air on me and we're not on such good terms. I am thankful for it though, because a hot breeze is better than no breeze right now.

I don't know if there was anything else I wanted to add... the heat's starting to peak for the day, and I can't think straight. Time to make preparations to leave my house, if just for an hour.

Find a book at barnes and noble and read for a bit :o)

Stay cool!

We have been seeing lots more movies than usual during the heat of the day too. We also don't have AC, but we also don't have as much humidity so I can't complain.

Glad things are going smoothly!

I am so very glad to hear you are up and about just a little bit. Find some air conditioning somewhere and stake out a bit of real estate. Continuing to pray and keeping my fingers crossed.

Grab a spray bottle full of water, turn it on mist and every few minutes mist yourself with the fan on. It really helps!

Glad you get to get up and move around, even if just for a bit. I'd be making a lot of cold dinners if I were you with all of this heat! Pasta salads, and cold soups! lol

Celia said...

Ugh. No air. Noooooooo. Have some smoothies for dinner. No extra heat. It is supposed to be 105 around here soon. Sweet Jesus.

If you lived close by I would bring you a couple window units! We just got regular AC this year so I understand : ( I love homemade food, when I was on bed rest the hubs relied on McDonalds and Taco Bell... not the best!

Oh god, pregnant in summer with no air conditioning, on bedrest, upstairs? I am sorry! Well, not about the pregnant thing, but I am sorry that you are so uncomfortable. I can't handle this humidity at all, but I have no right to complain because we do have air. I am glad that you can go down stairs and do some cooking. Good luck with the rest of this hot week.

Argh, I don't know how you're hanging in there! It must be so uncomfortable. It was 106 here in Texas today, and even with A/C it was so hot in the house. The poor air conditioner just couldn't keep up! I can't imagine not having it, though!
