 I was admitted to the hospital two days ago because of preeclampsia, blood pressure was high enough that the doctors wanted to monitor closely and give medication. Only I seem to metabolize the drugs very quickly cause the effect doesn't last very long when it has had effect at all *sigh*
 
All of yesterday I felt like crap, tired and with a headache, and then during the night I started vomiting, and the effing blood pressure Would Not Go Down. So, today they will start the birth medically, two weeks before the due date. Which is fine cause everything is "ready" with the baby, these last two weeks are all about fattening up a bit. (Which wouldn't be too bad though since the ultra sound showed the baby to weigh about 2,5 kg yesterday, 0,5 kg less than expected 😧)

 We went to the last of three group meetings for first time expectant parents today. The meetings has been good, and it's nice to meet other people in the same situation, but at the same time we've both had a bit of trouble connecting with the other parents cause we're so much younger than they are, and quite a few of them seem to have quite swanky jobs :/ Afterwards we had a health/growth check with the same midwife who held the meetings (who is also 100% convinced that every single one of the mothers are going to rip during birth. She's also retiring next month) and my blood pressure was too high, 150/85. So, extra check-up again on friday.

We had lunch with hubby's father, they're working on a project together, and then I went on to go buy a foam bed for the changing table and a breast pump. And I'm fucking furious. I went a long way to meet up, and then the woman selling the things hurries us both by parking in a way that obstructs traffic, so I didn't really get a chance to look everything through properly and when I get home I notice that the fucking pump is dirty,  broken and an much older model than what she'd claimed Ò_Ó it works but you can't adjust the sucking strength...

 I've been buying baby clothes second hand. They're barely used since they'll likely only fit for about a month, and at a third or less of retail price. So, very pleased with that. And a nursing table, which looks huge in our tiny bathroom :| but we (or I at least) also want to try EC - elimination communication, to reduce diaper use. For the baby's sake since it lessens risk for rashes, and for our own economy's sake and for the environments' sake.

 We had another ultra sound scan today, as part of a study. Wriggle is growing well but a little behind in expected size, -14,7%, but it's still within normal parameters so no need to check further as it is still growing bigger at a steady rate.

Meanwhile mum here has gained ca 15 kg so far from being pregnant! Sigh...

 Couldn't say good bye to my closest friend at work cause she was home sick :(

I brought vanilla buns I'd baked this weekend, and I thought, maybe, okay I'd hoped, I would get some kind of gift from my co-workers, like a  baby onesie or something, but no ;-;

Bye bye!

 As in, Kiyo was looking very swollen around her tail, has been for weeks now, and I've just been waiting and waiting for her to Take. A. Goddamn. Shit.

But no.

So today she got to bathe (not appreciated) with little effect. So then she got some gentle massage over the belly and after awhile first comes pee, quite a lot of it too! But then comes poo, yay! Okay, a little more massage, more poo, and more, and more, and... Yeah, she dropped about 40 g in weight, totalt weight post-poo being 135 g. So... That was a Lot.

Good baby ball <3 Now poo on your own next time!

;-;

 This has not been a good week so far, much more pelvic pain than usual, ugh ;-;

Little wriggle, I think I already love you, but I do not appreciate what carrying you does to my body -.-'

A work colleague is going to Japan in 2 days. She's promised to buy me matcha-kitkat <3<3<3

(Work though, is rather boring. I'm only working half days and usually not scrubbed in, so the work I do is not very stimulating and I still come home fucking exhausted... Uuugh)

Kiyo had a perfect shed <3<3<3 I'm so proud and happy for her :,D

(but I'm still ill ;-;)

Hadn't seen Kiyo in a while so I checked on her today and she's in blue. Looks like a little ghost of herself :3 I poured at least 2 litres of water on the substrate to keep it moist enough in there for her (at least she's found the moist hide) and hopes she has a clean shed this time. Last time was in october and did not go very well ;-;

I have a cold (again) and every time I cough, which is often, my womb cramps up. I know overall that the cramping threshold is much lower when pregnant but apparently this also translates into a much greater risk of coughing hard enough to retch. Haven't actually thrown up yet, buuuut, I figure it's just a question of time.

But little wriggle is bouncy and active so I'm not worried for that at least!

KIYO ATE A BIG RAT TODAY FINALLY!! I am such a proud snake-mama :,D

(I hadn't realized how many muscles they have in their little faces <3 she wiggled her nose so cutely when eating!)

 Two mornings in a row now I woken up because my dearest little wriggle is Kicking. My. Bladder. With real determination too, going *DUNK*. *DUNK*. *DUNK*. It tickles horribly and is impossible to ignore, so up I waddle to pee too remove that oh so tempting (apparently) target. -.-'

Kiyo has figured out from where the food enters the terrarium. In the first few months with us she wasn't eating but she was very active, climbing all over everything she could reach, night as day. I think now she was actually looking for food but not recognizing what was offered.

Now that she Knows, she lies in her log, head just sticking out, as soon as the sun starts setting, just watching the terrarium door, and when a pinkie comes along she's on it in seconds! Pinkies are a bit small true, but I daren't try the bigger ones yet after the last Fiasco. So she's getting two pinkies a week for a bit longer and then we'll see again.

Also yesterday she got a bath casue she'd been a messy eater the day before, and afterwards she peed all over me XD

(And I have a cold again ;-;)

Went to see a doctor at the maternal care clinic again and she prescribed 50 % sick leave because of my pain and exhaustion in combination with my very physical work. It is such a relief.

Wriggle is playing roller coaster inside (<3<3<3) and Kiyo (back to pinkies) ate all on her own again!

SHE DIDN'T EAT THAT BLOODY RAT SHE WAS GUARDING IT THAT'S WHY SHE WAS ACTING WEIRD AND NOW WHEN I GOT HOME FROM WORK IT WAS STINKING UP THE APARTMENT SO BAD!!!!!! NAUGHTY FUCKING SNAKE GOD DAMMIT!!!

Kiyo's acting a bit weird. She's laying with just her head poking out of her log and as soon as anyone passes by she snaps to attention!

I tried looking inside the log though and I couldn't see the rat, so I hope she's managed to eat it :3

Kiyo got offered a bigger rat than usual today (the pinkies really are too small for her) and she snapped it up so fucking fast!! :D such a proud snake-mama~

Only she managed to drag it inside her log (and it looks a bit cramped in there) and she's had it for an hour now and not actually eaten it, just "killing", so we'll see how it goes.
