8 Months Pregnant with a Toddler

I am feeling a lot better. I went to the Chiropractor on Friday and had a full hour massage on Saturday and felt almost normal since then. We had a busy weekend though, I probably should have rested more but all is well. I had another episode of that rib pain this morning when I woke up at 5:30. I tried a different treatment this morning - I was so sleepy I really didn't want to get up. So I positioned all of my pillows so I was nearly sitting up in bed and iced the area that was hurting for 15 minutes. Then fell back to sleep. My back was much less sore when I woke up at 8:30.

Jonah had a little episode of possible heat stroke this weekend. It has been near 100 here the last few days. He woke up from his nap and we transferred him to his carseat to make a visit to a friends house. Despite the air conditioning blowing full blast, I don't think it cooled the back seat down much and then those car seats can be very hot too. Anyway, when we got to our destination, Jonah was flushed and lethargic and just not his normal social, active self. He just wanted to sit on my lap and his body felt very hot. Then the place where we were there were lots of people and so the house wasn't very cool. We finally stripped him down to his diaper and then a few minutes later decided to get in their pool. (Jonah loves the pool!) On the way home that evening we just kept him in his diaper and it was much cooler on the ride home, but when we got home his core still felt very warm. We took his temperature and it was 102. By the time we put him to bed though he had cooled down and has been fine ever since. It has made us more diligent about not letting him get so hot especially in the car. Well again, no pictures this weekend. Sorry! I'll try to take some this week.
