Quick Update

Mommy, Esq. is hot, tired and has cankles tonight so this post will be quick. I saw Dr. Whatscooking this morning. He said he was surprised he didn't find me in the hospital this weekend after what happened on Friday night. I'm not quite sure how to take that but since I heard their heartbeats again and no one seemed particularly concerned I'm sure all is fine. Interestingly my blood pressure was higher at the appointment - maybe because it was the morning?

I am a little worried I don't feel Baby A (our "presenting" BoyBaby) very often whereas BabyGirl is very active (our little "firebrand"). If any MOT's out there can chime in to reassure me that would be great. :) Dr. Whatscooking told me that so long as the ultrasounds show him to be fine I shouldn't worry. So now I'm anxiously awaiting the ultrasound in 2 weeks.

Despite the overnight growth of my belly I only gained 2 lbs in 2 weeks - I thought for sure it would have been more. My dad saw me last Friday and then Sunday and even he (who never noticed when I chopped my hair off) commented on the incredible growth practically overnight. I've been averaging around 1 to 1.5 lbs a week and I now officially weigh more than Husband. I do not waddle yet but I still have 3 months to go.

This odd feeling of complete exhaustion has befallen me lately - almost like I'm hung over. It is making it hard to work the 15 hour days that are required right now at my job. I've been drawing lines in the sand and getting to bed by midnight but frankly I think I need more than 6 or 7 hours of sleep - mainly because when I do sleep I have nightmares and weird dreams. I will try to drink more water before bed to see if that helps. Two more weeks and this work crisis should be over and I am not going to do any more bids. I am drinking more water which helps but it is too bad my expensive under-eye cream is not doing its job.

I always felt Baby B more than Baby A and always worried right before every ultrasound and NST appt and they were always fine! My OB said that Baby B could be positioned so it was easier for me to feel him and he also thought that maybe I wasn't always sure who I was feeling, since their limbs can get kinda long in the end.
So don't worry and I hope you can get some good rest! ~Janna
