I had another appointment this morning so I got to drop off Raf at preschool. He was so sweet running in, and as I chatted to his teacher, Ms. Nicki, he ran off in the playground and sat in a circle with some of his friends. He looked really happy. Rich and I both went to collect him and, again, he looked so happy. In his little journal Ms. Nicki wrote that he's been 'joyful' all day!
I did get to speak with his teacher a little and she said how easy-going Rafi is, and how he enjoys everything they do. We're so relieved that he's settled in so easily and quickly.
One thing that has backtracked is his potty training. We don't push it at all but today when I wanted to put a training nappy on him, he said, 'no mama, I want my baby pants'! I took him downstairs half naked to find one and he gratefully said, 'thanks, mummy'. Not sure what to do at this point but I have a feeling that pushing it won't achieve much.
In appointment news I had to go to the midwife to give a pee sample as I have been feeling pretty terrible. I vomited as soon as I got there, which didn't bode well. There is blood in my pee so that may mean a UTI or an infection of the kidney. The latter fills me with dread since this is what led Raf to be induced (well, kidney problems) so I am a little nervous. I have a proper appointment tomorrow but won't get the results until Friday.
Whatever is going in it's pretty miserable. Lots and lots of vomiting.. Oh, yes, I clearly do pregnancy very easily! As I said to Rich this evening, the end result is so very worth it, though I feel a bit withered.
I also haven't managed to order anything. We discovered that one of our car seats has long since expired in terms of its use so now we have to buy another one, and we're stuck with only one type since there is only one that is compatible with our stroller. I thought I'd found a super deal on an older model but, alas, of course they're all sold out. Anyway, tomorrow I MUST order this car seat and I also need to order some new little nappies. Oh, and some newborn clothes! Yikes.
34 weeks, which I officially hit tomorrow, feels like a big milestone and it marks only two weeks to go of bed rest. Woo hoo!
We've not taken any pregnancy photos this time around so on my way to the bathroom I took a quick photo on my computer. Excuse the crumbled bed clothes and raggy old hair. I was hoping to get some maternity shots this time around, especially with big brother Rafi, but with all that's going on it may not be practical.
