Busy day at work, as per. I ate my lunch about 3:30...if you wanna call it eating...
Anyway, still rainy and cold here as well. Sounds like I'm in good company. The forecast is calling for sun and 61* tomorrow...I'm not holding my breath.
Random: so the parking situation at my hospital is the absolute worst. Unless you're upper leadership or have eleventy years of seniority, you're parking offsite and shuttling in. This stupidity adds easily an hour a day onto my commute time, so hard pass to that. I park in a public ramp down the road. The cost is worth my time. ANYway...so to get to said ramp, I enter/leave the hospital through the Women's Center. When I was leaving today, there was a young family leaving with their brand new bundle. The baby was crying...oh that brand new cry!! My ovaries were about to explode, I swear. Wtf? I'm supposed to be 80% done right?? This has got to be the Celexa talking. I just...feel like I missed out on so much of the newborn phase struggling with GERD, then RSV, and my PPD. I'm sad that I'm (most likely) never going to experience it again, at least not with my own biological child. Le sigh.
britta I felt the same about a newborn today. I got to meet a coworkers 2 month old baby--so precious and tiny (only 2 lbs more than DS2 at birth). Then another coworker told me she was expecting a baby girl, her "dream." Which made me wistful that I'll never have a daughter.
@kitchen 96.8 is still within the normal range for an adult. Maybe you just run lower? How did you take your/his temp? A rectal temp tends to run 1 degree higher than an oral temp, on average. Also something to take into consideration. At any rate, I think the fact that it came down with meds is good. Our pedi always tells me too, it's less about the actual number and more about how the kid looks. You can have a lower-ish temp and still be very sick and on the flip side, have a higher temp but be fine. Fever suck though, so much worry, I'm sorry.
@holachica I think that's a good way to put it. It's just a bittersweet feeling I guess. I'm more excited about watching my boys grow up (read: being done with the baby phase) than I am when I think about the possibility of another. That's what I have to remind myself of.
