I missed my last midwife appointment. Brian can generally stay home with Titus & or the daycare baby while I go but he was unable to this past week. Now I have no idea when they will be able to squeeze me in.

I did pass my 3 hour glucose tolerance test. Much to the surprise of my midwife. I passed easily. Still trying to watch the sugar and carb intake.

I have been fighting an upper respiratory infection for over 2 weeks and now a sinus infection on top of it.  I had a couple of colds while pregnant with Titus but nothing like this crud that never goes away. I should be getting my energy back but I just feel run down. Run down by a cement mixer. Nausea easing but not gone. I am just about 17 weeks.

We have the average amount of drama going on with social services and foster child. They are letting things go on which I feel compromises the safety of the little boy. Long unsupervised visits with an addict father who has recently had dirty UAs.  Feeling impotent and on edge. In better news, M celebrated his 6th birthday on Friday. His social skills have improved quite a bit since he arrived in July. He was thrilled with his small gifts and home made cake. In a few years it will have to be video games or laser tag. For now 6 is simple and sweet.

We see the perinatologist for an anatomy scan on the 28th of this month. I am really curious to see if this baby will have the same short arm and leg bones that Titus did. They will attempt to do an echo cardiogram.


  1. Sorry to hear social services are being their usual crap selves. It would be a nice change once in a while if they just got their shit together. I was hoping you would be over your illness by now, not happy to hear it is still lingering. Glad you passed your GTT though, that is excellent news and such a relief. Nice to have one less thing to worry about. Good luck at the anatomy scan on the 28th! xx

  2. I am curious to find out what blog platform you have been
    utilizing? I'm experiencing some minor security issues with my latest site and I would like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any suggestions?
