24 Weeks

Six months down, four to go. See that's the little tidbit they leave out. You're really pregnant for ten months. This the lull in excitement time. No more milestones until he pops out. Well I am kind of looking forward to when you can see his kicking on the outside. Tom thinks I am imagining all the movement I am getting now. I had my gestational diabetes test today. Which consists of drinking a super sweet orange soda (50mg of glucose) and then having a blood draw an hour later. I am going back in a week. I want a flu vaccine and they want to check my ears again. They saw fluid behind them which explains why I've felt kind of stuffy. I was so hoping to get through the whole pregnancy without getting sick. But I am allowed to take S*dafed once or twice a day to clear this up. Peanut's heartrate is ticking along nicely at 150 bpm. And I have now officially gotten back to my pre-pregnancy weight. So every pound here on out counts in my total tally. I kept bumping into women who gained 40-50 lbs. during their pregnancies. Damn! My goal will be to not exceed 25 lbs. People are so lovely and keep telling me I don't look 6 months pregnant. Nicest thing you can say to me right now. My midwife also encouraged me to sign up for classes now. Tom has agreed to go to everything so we'll see how he does.
