In the 3rd Tri!

Lots is happening. Johnny can blink and hear and is over 2 pounds! He is starting to fill out, and stretch the heck out of me.
I'm very excited and nervous about his arrival. I've had another u/s to monitor my fibroids and seeing him makes me want him here. I know he needs to cook longer, but I am anxious for his arrival.

I know I've been a slacker, but we've had a rough couple of weeks. Chris' dad lost his battle with prostate cancer a couple weeks ago. It's been devastating and I haven't been a good blogger since it happened.

26 weeks

I had to C&P this, I was amazed:

At long last, your little swimmer can see the womb! Your miracle’s little eyelids have finally separated (they were fused closed previously) and they’re probably having their first moments of sight as you read this (or maybe it already happened while you were brushing your teeth or watching Oprah or something). In addition to seeing their little studio in your belly, they’ve recently acquired the ability to say “yes” and “no” in rudimentary sign language as they can now move their head back and forth. This is also the time where your little super star’s head hair is starting to grow! A cute little cowlick or two may be springing into position right now, getting ready for years of cute-but-stubborn bed-head. Also, their toenails have grown in and you little raisin continues to slowly pile up fat beneath their still-loose skin. Most importantly, brain tissue and neurons are all developing at a rapid pace, increasing their (genius-level?) brain activity and will continue to function at accelerated levels for the first seven to eight years of childhood!

24 & 25

Yes, I'm a slacker, but here it goes!

Johnny can now hear loud noises and is beginning to respond to my voice and body noises. I swear he can hear Chris too. Chris has been able to feel some of the movements, as long as they're strong.

I had my first L&D dream, the only problem is I didn't deliver! It was like I was destined to be pregnant forever, lol.

Friday we go for another u/s. The OB wants to get an accurate reading of Johnny's size and to check up on those fibroids of mine. Hopefully I'll get a new picture to take home :O)

Week 23

The hunger is here. I eat and then it's like I never ate. I've still not gained any extra weight, but I have a feeling that's going to change from this point on.

I read that John can hear loud noises now. It's funny, I swear he moves more when the phone rings, lol.

I go back to the OB Thursday. I will discuss the flu shots and see what she says. If I can get the Thimersol free seasonal I may do that one. I'm still unsure about the h1n1.

22 weeks and a growth spurt

So 22 weeks arrived and I noticed that the belly is much bigger than even last week. It must be, since even Chris noticed! It's not surprising though, since John is now about a pound and almost a foot long.

He's been very active, some days I swear if I put my hand on my belly I can feel it. Unfortunately it's sporadic, so Chris hasn't gotten to experience it yet.

Our next OB appointment is next week. We'll discuss the glucose test date (joy) and I will go for another u/s at some point to check on my fibroids. Hopefully they won't grow anymore.

I'm all belly

Over the last week or so, the belly has really started to protrude. I haven't gained any extra weight, so the ball I carry in the front has gotten quite noticeable.

Unfortunately that means sleeping is much more difficult. Most nights I wake up at least 9 times to readjust.

Johnny is also moving more. He doesn't care if it's day or night, if he has something to do he does it LOL.

I go back for another u/s in a few weeks to monitor the fibroids so hopefully I'll get newer pictures.
