The shots I started last time are going well. I have been having my dad give them to me on the weeks when I don't have a doctor appointment so I don't have to go in every week. Although I will say the more I take them the more they are starting to hurt/burn when they are administered. What we women do for our children! The doctors are happy again with how things are progressing. So far there I haven't had a whole lot of problems. No random infections (yeast or UTI) and the one I am most proud of - no cankles! I have had very little swelling this time around which is actually very surprising. But I'll take it. I am feeling pretty good. I am starting to get the pregnancy waddle down fairly well. I swear as much as you try not to waddle, you can't avoid it, especially towards the end of the day when all you want to do is sit with your feet up. The babies heart rates where at 134 and 143 today. And they are moving like crazy.
The heat up here in Northwest Indiana is really kinda getting to me. I usually don't complain about the heat....its not bothered me for any of the three pregnancies (and it was 115 degrees in Alabama on moving day when I was 6 months along with the Little Man.) But this one is starting to kick my butt. I feel like I am melting after a few moments out in the sun. The solution has been to not go outside until the sun starts setting. Which it probably better for the kids anyways so they don't get sunburned and such. I just hate being inside all day long. I am praying for rain, for the crops and local farmers' sanity and also so the fire ban is lifted for the 4th of July. It's my favorite holiday! I love everything about it. The fireworks, the patriotism, and the picnics.
Well enough of my rambling - here's on to my little fun facts.
How far along: 23 weeks 6 days today. 113 Days to go!!!! :)
Maternity Clothes: Flip Flops & Shirt from Old Navy, Skirt from Meijer.
Size of Babies: About 1 full pound and about 12 inches long - The length of an ear of corn!
Weird Changes: I have a lot of pressure for obvious reasons, but I will say it is causing me to feel like I pulled muscles in certain places that I didn't think you could. Its not horrible, but it does make walking long distances not so much fun.
Best moment this week: Big L asking daily how the babies are doing. He is really interested in how they are growing.
What I am looking forward to: Seeing how much this belly of mine is going to grow in the next 3 months.
Weekly Wisdom: Sleep when you can!!!!!!
Milestones: On July 3rd it will be Miss E's 3rd Birthday! And July 8th is our 6th Anniversary!!!!
