And I am tired of this heat. I feel like I can't breathe most days.
Well enough whinging for now. Have to go and take the bread out of the oven.

Had a doctors appt today. I have not been feeling too good lately, shakey, can't sleep, sweaty, nauseas with vomiting, feeling very flakey and forgetful, heart palpatations, anxious. Usual pregnant women things. The week before the doc did some blood work to check my thyroid because I have a history of hyperthyroidism. Well, the blood work came back and yes, I am hyper again. I am also having the symptoms of a thyroid storm, not good. They took my heart rate today and it was 160bpm. Again, not good. But my blood presure was 122/68. Excellant. They took some more blood today and if it looks good, then i am fine. If the levels are high, then we will do an amnio and if the babies lungs are developed, we will be inducing early. Granted I am 36 weeks so it is not that serious for her, I hope. And she is as big as my lsat 2 girls but it is just more drama I don't need. I called the hubby and told him and he is handling it as well as can be expected. 14,000 miles away and he can do nothing. But I wanted him to know what is going on so that if I call him next week and we have a new baby girl, he won't freak out. His first response, anger. Then he calmed a bit and is ok.
So if anyone is into prayer out there, pray that my levels come back ok and that I am just having hormone and anxiety issues. I will go and light a candle tonight. Pray to my dieties.And see what happens.
Talked to the doctor today and my blood work is elevated but not high enough for them to induce me at this point. So they have started me on medicine to surpress my thyroid levels and hopefully put a halt to my symptoms. The only draw back is I have to go to have a non-stress test everytime I go to the doctor. The reason for that is the medicine that they put me on could also surpress the babies thyroid and heart rate. If the heart rate drops and the movements drop, then it is time to pull the plug. I think it will all be fine though. I have tough girls.
Now if I could get the husband settled a bit, all would be well. He is feeling the pains of the one month mark of being away from everyone. Anyone that has been there, knows what I am saying.

Bon Scott's grave. The empty space on the right is where a statue was stollen from. "For those about to Rock" .
An American in Freo. Got to love the Shirt! ROFL!
Lunch and another pint. Yes, I can't wait to get there.
That being said, I came in and decided that my big stuff will go on the "List". Craig's list. Do you know him? The DH hates it but I have had nothing but luck on it. Put 2 items on it that I had in the yardsale, Kitchen aid mixers, the big mofos that we paid alot for.(And can you believe someone had the nerve to ask me at the sale if I would take $20 for a 6 month old $500 mixer? And they new how much it cost!Big balls!) Anyway, put the items on the List and got a call 15 mins later. asked if I still have them and I told them yes. They wanted them. No questions asked. No haggling and I had raised the price on them just in case. So lovely young lady comes to my house, walks out with 2 mixers and paid CASH! Oh be still my heart! I am a believer in the List now. I have many items on there now, if anyone is interested. Now I am wondering if I should do more yardsales for the little bullshit items or just forget it, sell the big things and donate all the little stuff and clothes. Any advice? We are maybe getting a sea crate to ship some things to Perth but not alot. Not even sure if it is going to be worth it in the big picture. But when you have 2 little kids, there are somethings that you just don't want to get rid of. And alot of things that I know would cost an arm and a leg to replace there. Oh what to do, what to do. Maybe the answer will come to me in my sleep. Dream of my home there and see what I see in it. Wouldn't that be lovely!
And only 4 more weeks til my baby is here as of today!!! I can't wait. Now if we could decide on a name, that would be wonderful. We are down to Rose, Fiona, Katheryn and Ursula. I say wait and see who she is and then decide. We have come this far without a name, just wait a few more weeks. And I have my final sonogram on Wed to see how big our girl is too.
Will let you know and I am sure have a pic for you too after wed. Until then...
