Well - this picture really doesn't do the newest Rumer justice - but he really looks like an actual human now - it's so cool. (the baby is waving at us!!) We went for the ultrasound today, so they could measure the back of the neck for Downs Syndrome, and the baby had a big time. Thought there was a trampoline in there - bouncing up and down and turning around all the time...so cool! (and kind of bizarre - still trying to understand that there is a person inside me - but that weirds me out too...) Anyhow- it appears we already have a very stubborn baby because the ultrasound lady couldn't get the right picture of the neck due to the dancing around - so she switched ultrasound methods - and then the baby practically went on a nap for 5 minutes. This whole time, probably 15-20 minutes, she is practically beating my belly trying to stimulate the baby to turn the right way. OMG!! I actually hurt when I got home! Not cool....
Anyway - finally got the right pictures and the doctor said everything looks good...Pretty quick appointment actually. Have to wait 4 weeks to go to the doctor again...boo.
I have decided that I love my doctor though. I did not receive a lecture on weight gain and, basically, I now heart her to death. I think I chose doctors based on who lectures and who doesn't. I prefer the doesn't category...haha!! All I'm going to say - is I have gained more than I meant to - but y'know - I've been on a serious diet/workout regimen for 2 years and had to stop very suddenly. Obviously - not so cool for me. Oh well. She doesn't seem worried - so I am going to come to terms with it and just keep walking 4 miles with Sam every evening.
And I have a love affair with blueberry bagels (normal) and grape soda (has resurfaced after 16 years).
