Bellybutton Check

Kyle's latest thing is to 'check' my bellybutton. By 'check' I mean poke at it and laugh because it's getting shallower and shallower...Don't worry Kyle, you'll get your payback - someday I'll poke at your head and laugh as your hairline recedes and recedes :)

Doctor's Appointment - 26 weeks

Pretty uneventful, but I like that. An uneventful doctors appointment is like an uneventful airplane ride...I'd rather have it uneventful then eventful!

I peed in a cup then they took my weight (up 2 lbs from last visit but still down 5 total). My blood pressure was a little high so they took it again at the end of the appointment and it was just fine. We heard the baby's heartbeat - in the 130s - and got information about birthing classes and pre-registration information for the hospital.

My gag reflex is still off the charts but I only get sick about once a week now - and only in the shower. The shower is like the perfect storm of puking.

  • The humidity in the air makes my extra pregnancy mucus drain down the back of my throat - making me hack like and 80 year old smoker.
  • Apparently hot water makes your blood pressure drop which adds to the symptoms
  • Brushing my teeth has always kinda made me gag (which is why I do it in the shower) but I'm trying a new toothbrush and got some kids watermelon toothpaste. I've also learned that I shouldn't let the toothpaste or brush touch my tongue - that just makes it worse...
I get to go back in 2 weeks for all the yucky tests - the anemia one and the diabetes one...all I know is I have to drink some sugar goo and get poked at with needles. Should be a great time!

We Bought a House!

It's about time isn't it?

I'll post more pictures once I take them (the one's in MLS arent' great) and more details once we're actually fully under contract. Yea, I'm so excited and ready to have our own place!

Baby's getting started on the lessons early. Right now, baby's just sampling activities. Every night around 10:30 baby heads off to it's lesson for the evening. Monday night was swimming (baby learned the frog kick), Tuesday was kick boxing, and Wednesday was Tae-bo.

Let's hope baby takes up reading or knitting soon...
