Week Twenty
~ I'm half way there!

The baby is very busy, and I'm so happy to be feeling it move so much. I don't think I ever had a "flutter." It's just kicks and jabs. "HEY, I'm in here!"

Last Friday I had some cramping that made me a bit nervous. It began as soon as I got up. I wasn't sure if was a pregnancy thing or just a stomach ache. Around noon or so I had to run some errands and when I got in the car I noticed that my back was aching a bit too. Since the cramping was an all day thing, not off and on, I decided to call my OB, as a precaution. Well, we just played phone tag, missing each other with each call. At 5:00 pm, the pain finally went away. Just quit. I have no idea what it was, but I haven't had it since. My next appointment is on the 28th, so I'll bring it up and see what they say.

Chaynee has gotten sick, finally. It seemed like it was inevitable with all the crud going around. Fortunately I'm still hanging in there, knock on wood. If we make it through her cough, etc. without me catching it I'm going to assume that I'm home free! Wishful thinking!! I was sick when I was pregnant with Chaynee, had to take antibiotics, etc. It made me so worried about the effects on the baby! So, hopefully I'll get to skip that experience this time.

Here is my toilet paper measurement. It's morning while I'm doing this, so keep in mind that I'm probably a square bigger in the evening! I am 8-1/2 squares! I noticed in the mirror that the paper was riding up on my hips a bit, so I adjusted it to make sure I got the biggest part of me. How are you others, due in June, measuring up? I'm curious to see where I fit in the spectrum.
