Forgive me for being a SLACKER

I have been a slacker with the blogging lately. And a slacker at keeping up with everyone.

Dorothy has gotten over her sniffles and I am crossing my fingers that she'll get back to the 6 hour stretches of sleep she was doing starting in the early evening. With her cold she got into a nasty habit of not going to sleep until midnight. I think we're back on track today, as she slept for a day and a half (waking to eat in between) and woke up this morning at around 10 or so and stayed awake almost all day today. She fell asleep around 7. And why am I not in bed?? I know not.

I have a confession to make. I am still in my jammies from LAST NIGHT. It is now 8:20 pm. oh, the shame. But I did get dishes put away, bottles washed, milk pumped, baby changed and fed numerous times, cloth diapers washed and folded, and 3 meals eaten. It still feels like nothing got done. Ah, well.

Tomorrow is my six week post partum check, which is with my peri of all people. I thought they would just stick me with any old OB they could find, since I don't have one assigned. As it is, I am so glad it is scheduled with him, because there are some questions I want to ask about future pregnancies. Yes. I said it. Can you believe I would be thinking of this already? The first thing I want to know is if I will be doomed to months of strict bedrest every time. If not, the possibility of more kids would be more doable, even if the bedrest was modified instead of strict. The other thing I want to ask is about a procedure called a transabdominal cerclage, commonly called a TAC. From what I have heard, bedrest is much less common with a TAC as they are placed higher up. The drawbacks are that it is a more difficult surgery and it is permanent, therefore requiring a C-section every time. I don't know if my peri does them (or even recommends them) but I want to at least inquire.

Wish me luck.

Thanks for the update! And good luck at your appointment. Try to give us an update on that when you can.
I am glad to hear that you and Dorothy are doing well and that she is over her cold. Here's hoping she is back to her regular sleeping habits soon!

oh...and no need to apologize for being a slacker. I have been accused of it a million times since I had my kids. Mostly by friends without babies. They have NO idea how time consuming (and wonderful) life is with little ones.
