This Week

It’s been a week of ups and downs.

[+] Up: I felt the baby move for the first time a week ago.  We think it’s going to be a kickboxer like its mommy.

[+] Down: This kid requires more calories than I normally intake during the day and I can’t actually *eat* that much without serious indigestion.

[+] Up: My pregnancy pants fit and will hopefully last me throughout the pregnancy.  They also look better than my normal work clothes.

[+] Down: I’m getting fat.  (Yes, I have a complex about my weight.)

[+] Up/Down: I got my pregnancy tops in the mail from Old Navy.  The only problem: I overestimated my size and am having to exchange a few because they’re WAAAAAAY bigger on top than I am.

[+] Down: Got hit with really severe stress on Tuesday night that kept me home Wednesday with panic attacks and Thursday with the mother of all migraines.  I had to actually take narcotics for it because the pain was so severe and I can’t have any of the normal NSAID’s or triptans because of teh baby.

[+] Up: I’m almost to the halfway point of this pregnancy.

The stretch marks on THE TUMMY look like a little kid ran their fingernails down each quadrant of it.  I’d post a picture but I don’t think people want to be grossed out that much!

The next pre-natal appointment is Tuesday and we’ll talk about scheduling the next ultrasound at that point.  My guess: probably late February/early March to check for the pulmonary artery atresia.  We’ll also find out at that point if the baby will be Katie or Daniel.

    Ups are good. Downs, not so much. Try to relax. Easy for me to say from the other side of the world, I know, but you have to! For both of you.

    p.s. Take advantage of being able to eat lots! Indulge! Go crazy!

    Loads of undomesticated brown leafy not to mention creek trout can be obtained from that approach.
