I had my last appointment with my midwives yesterday. Cupcake weighs 13 pounds now, and my midwives all said she seems very mature for 9 weeks. Midwife L. said Cupcake is allergic to something I’m eating (indicated by scaliness behind Cupcake’s ears), so L. recommended I stop eating peanut products, which are the most common culprit. She said if eliminating peanut products doesn’t help, then the next thing to go will have to be dairy. Hopefully it won’t come to that….
I am going to start walking a few evenings a week. There is a 2-mile fitness trail near our house, and last night I walked it twice (4 miles!) in 70 minutes. I have a couple of albums specifically intended for exercising. The songs have strong beats, and each song flows seamlessly into the next. The beats per minute gradually increase and hold at a pretty fast rate for quite a while, and then slow again. Today I’m feeling the burn!
