Twenty weeks equals the half way mark in pregnancy. Twenty more weeks (or so) and Hailey will be here. Saying that puts it into perspective because it really doesn't seem like its that far off. But at the same time I'm sure that this is going to be the most excruciatingly long 20 weeks of my life. I have started knitting a yellow, pink, and purple blanket to occupy myself in the mean time.
I've also come to the conclusion that I'm going to start taking yoga classes again. I just e mailed my teacher and she said that she would be able to tweak the poses to accomodate my "roundness". I'm kind of looking forward to it cuz I'm feeling really bunched up. A good stretch and sweat will do me good.
I had my ultrasound today and I'm proud to say that I'm going to be the mommy of a little girl! But not just any kind or girl...a difficult one. The entire time the U/S tech was trying to get a look at her she was moving and flipping around...thw tech got all the pictures that she needed but not with out a fight....
Then once the radiology doctor came in to finish decided to burry herself head down deep into my pelvis and take a nap so he couldn't get a decent shot of her head...so after shaking my abdomen around and pushing down on my very full bladder for about ten minutes they let me go pee and ended up having to tilt me almost upside down on the bed to see if gravity would help get her into a better position......not so much (stubborn ass kid).
Will and I were left in the room for a few minutes, to see if me laying on the bed tilted back would get her where they needed her to be, when he got the bright idea to take my left leg and hit the bottom of my foot (like a ketchup bottle). They came back and some how that did the trick...she didn't wake up but she moved just enough for them to get a good measurement of her head.
On a side note: I did appreciate (sp?) the fact that they warm the transmitter gel. It was quite nice compared to the ice gel that I've come to tolerate.
( Speaking of growing...Collapse )
I didn't take my prenatal vitamin today and low and behold I didn't get a headache. I take that back....I had a slight twinge behind my right eye but that was just cuz I was hungry and that went away when I ate. So now me and the little one are gonna be Flintstones kids. *singing* Ten million strong, and growing.
