March Maddness

Ok I know in my last post I promised to write more but here it is over a month from my last post. Work has been crazy (unlike my February post where it was social activities) keeping us busy.

I had a good 22 week check up with dr on Thursday. It is so funny everyone seems to tell me I am to small to be pregnant, I should be bigger, I should eat this, I should not do that... I never realized how many people have opinions until now? Dr said I am right where I am supposed to be and gaining 12 lbs in first 22 weeks puts me square in the middle of NORMAL. His opinion is all that really matters. I find that I have a lot of energy but the heartburn is still there. I love to swim...the pool is one place nothing hurts and I feel great. In the last 2 weeks I have started to feel baby girl moving... I cannot wait until my husband can feel it. He is so excited to being having a girl.

My parents come for a 4 day visit this weekend and they too are excited to see us. The last time they saw me, I was 10 weeks pregnant so alot has changed in the last few months. We will see if they can keep true to their word that they do not want to know what the baby is before it is born. Keep posted to see if they hold out past this visit.

We have no idea on names for baby girl and have nothing to put in the now painted nursery but I am happy and healthy and for now that is what I need. I continue to pray for all of our BLM in my prayers for me and baby girl. I believe he is truly listening and good will come to all of us soon.


  1. I am so glad to hear that you and baby are well. You'd been on my mind quite a bit. Please keep me posted and let me know if your parents hold out . Happy 22 Weeks ;O)
