Those who have been here before know this blog was called Stork+Spatulas. I decided it did not reflect who I was and the direction I wanted to head in properly. Hence the change.
Lots has happened in the past couple of weeks. I was released for bedrest in the hospital to bedrest at home in my 27th week. That same evening, I started getting itchy.
Oh my God I was itchy. At first I thought it was just an allergic reaction to something. I thought it might be the Epsom salts since it started to happen after a soak in a bath that contained the salts. In an attempt to stop the itch, I took an antihistamine. That did not help. The itching got progressively worse. It got so bad the following day that I called the birthing centre at my hospital and spoke to a nurse. She had the doctor call me back after I described the symptoms. Because it was late, the doctor told me to try and get some sleep and come in the morning to have my liver enzymes checked.
Being stuck on bedrest, I have been surfing the net. A lot. Since I cannot work at the moment and won’t be for awhile, finances have been on my mind a lot as well, especially since we are on one income. I have come to realise that living from paycheck to paycheck is no way to go. Duh! (more…)
With the Sochi Winter Olympics underway, I thought I would share this video to show my support for all athletes, whether straight or gay.
