After much discussion, Jared and I decided to ask one of my dearest friends, Abby, to be our doula. She just signed up to become a certified doula, and we are thrilled that we will be her first training birth! Abby and I have been friends since I was 10 years old. I can't think of anyone better suited for this role, and we are SO excited to have her with us during this life event!
This week has not only brought about drastic change in my head, but in my stomach too. My very normal appetite has diminished to nearly non-existent over the past few days. It's like my metabolism has just stopped functioning. I have to remind myself to eat, because the natural prompting of hunger isn't doing its job. After I eat lunch, I feel full for the remainder of the day. I am hoping this works itself out just as quickly as it came.
Bug is about 4 lbs now, the weight of a pineapple. Getting big!
Craving of the week: Mom's homemade cinnamon rainsin toast. I've made four loaves so far (but only consumed one)!
