I Need to be Topped Off

Oh, Internets.

Let's have a chat shall we?

I'm feeling like a failure as a pregnant woman. Like I just don't incubate properly or something. I'm not good at this baby-baking thing. Sure, I can get pregnant just by giving H the eye or visa versa but going the full nine months and doing it without complication or stress? Yeah, it just doesn't happen.

Yesterday, I was busily typing and screening calls as TD engaged in her Sid the Science Kid love fest when I heard the machine pick up (yeah, I know, how 80s of me to not have voice mail) and it was my doctors office. Hm... Then my cell phone trilled. It was them. I immediately picked up to hear the woman tell me I need another sonogram but this time at a special diagnostic place. Apparently my amniotic fluid is low and I need to be resting more and ingesting even more fluids. "Not to worry though, stay away from stress and we will see you at your next appointment!" I half expected a hearty and happy "Cheerio!" as she signed off.

You know what Internets? I just give up. I don't know what to do anymore. I'm tired and feeling futile. I sit on my ass more hours than I like to count right now and feel like I never get anything accomplished. More than that though I am stressed. I want this kid to feel happy and safe in her little sublet also known as my uterus and I feel like I am failing her in that department.

If anyone has any advice on how to combat this low fluid thing, I sure would appreciate it.

  1. I say drink up.

    I've been on hospital bedrest. This is not a place you want to be.


Thanks for commenting! It's always good to hear from a reader and not say, a robot.
