I was scheduled in for a two-hour breastfeeding class at the hospital this morning. Despite having been through all this before, I thought it would be a good idea to go along and get a bit of a refresher or reminder.
However, my body hates me. The hot/dizzy/blurry vision episodes struck again! It seems to be a recurring theme when it comes to me and hospital classes; I used to get the same thing at almost every ante-natal class when I was pregnant with Elspeth. I don’t really know why; I wasn’t feeling consciously stressed and wasn’t physically active. The room was certainly over-heated, but that alone surely wouldn’t be enough to cause such a reaction. Whatever the reason, it happened, and I had to leave. And to make matters worse, I’d forgotten my phone, so I had to take a bus home instead of just calling Aidan to come and get me.
Since then, I’ve been in a somewhat fragile emotional state. I have been, for most of this pregnancy, very stable and balanced, but occasionally I just have a weepy day or an angry day or a just plain weird day. Today was weepy, tired day. I’ve been feeling slow and heavy and sad for no reason. Thank goodness Aidan had the day off work and could support me and spend a lot of time with Elspeth, giving me a bit of a break.
Here’s hoping tomorrow is better. Only three weeks to go!
