Holy moly time is flying. Thanks for your well wishes for Sugar! We've taken her back to the vet and he seems to think it could be cancer, but I'm not convinced. He said there is surgery they can do but it is risky for small animals with only a 30% success rate. That is just too low. We just wish her leg wound would heal up - it's heartbreaking to see a gaping bloody hole in your guinea pig's leg/rump. She is acting pretty normal, though she isn't nearly as active as usual - this also might have something to do with the fact that it has been 34 degrees everyday for the last week. Pigs don't do well in the heat.....just like pregnant women. Ha!
So I'm 30 weeks and I'm feeling it baby. I have some back pain when sitting at my desk for long periods of time, but the worst is the hip pain I get when sleeping on my side. We've added another futon but it doesn't seem to make a difference. Apart from that though I feel pretty good and have just been taking it easy. I walk slowly. We've bought a couple of baby items and their physical presence in our apartment was shocking at first - we really are going to have a baby!! I'm at my happiest now when swimming at the gym. I never want to get out of that pool. I'll be sad when I have to quit the gym at either the end of August or middle of September when my maternity leave begins (my gym is near my work). Luckily I'm pretty much only working four day weeks now and get to finish at 4:30pm. It is very helpful in avoiding rush hour crowds on the trains. Ok, it's 4:28pm now so it's time to leave work.
