Yep, I've made it to 24 weeks... it's pretty surreal to me.
Here are a couple of belly shots I took this morning:
First shirt up
Then shirt down
It looks about the same to me, but then again, I see it every day ;-)
I'm feeling pretty good other than crazy back pain and overall achiness. Olive is getting more and more active each day and has taken to using my bladder as a trampoline. It keeps me running to the bathroom about every 30 min or so- that and the GALLONS of water I drink everyday (you think I'm kidding but I literally drink close to 2 gallons a day... seriously).
We had our 24 wk appt this morning and had another u/s. Olive's heart is pumping away just fine with 4 beautiful chambers and she has a spine (like we were doubting that). One thing they didn't tell me last appt was that my placenta was low-lying, but it seems to have cleared up on its own without any prodding from me (or vibes from all you bloggy friends).
My doc is out on vacation (lucky him) so I just had his nurse, but I love her so I'll forgive him from not being there ;-) I had her check out this mole that Batman discovered (apparently he found it a while ago, and at the time I said I knew about it, but I have no recollection of this ever taking place) She is sending me on to a dermatologist to have it checked out. I will say one thing about it though. Who the hell gets a mole in their freaking ass crack? SERIOUSLY!! That part of me has NEVER even seen the light of day, let alone the actual sun, so where the hell did it come from?! And don't you think if I *really* knew about it those many months ago that Batman alleges that he found it that I would have done something about it then?! I'm still waiting for a call to set up an appt. Hopefully they can get me in sometime next week.
I also talked to her about my back pain and she referred me on to a PT. She thinks it's just too early for me to be in this much pain (I feel like a cripple after I have been sitting for just 10 minutes... too bad I sit in a freaking chair ALL F*ing DAY LONG). I start on Monday.
Enough about me though.
Father's Day was fun. We splurged and had McD's for breakfast at Batman's request and I made him this cute little onesie:
If you haven't figured out it's meaning yet, it's a hint to her name... You can check out Batman's blog too for another one. He is supposedly "back" and all.
For my dad, we all went together and got him tickets to a game. Since I (and possibly Batman too) will be up their way at the end of August we thought it might be fun for us all to go together. For my FIL we just took him out to a nice dinner at one of his favorite restaurants.
Other than that we have been re organizing and cleaning out the garage, study and nursery. It's quite the project I tell ya! I'll post pics when I have an after shot ;-)
