Hello 18 weeks!!
WOO HOO!!! Almost halfway there. We have our ultrasound this week and I can't wait. I am really tempted to find out if this is a girl or a boy just b/c of all the different symptoms I have had over the last few weeks. Then I can say "Little girl, you are making mama feel so bad, QUIT IT!" But I am still holding strong and don't really want to know. DH wants to know desperately...DS wants the surprise.
Update on the sciatica and migraines--both have fizzled out slightly. On Friday, I went to the chiropractor and I had a massage (she was sick on Wednesday). Both of them worked on me HARD. I am going back to the chiropractor 3 times this week AND I am going to get another massage on Wednesday so I can be loosened up. Both the chiro and the massage therapist said I was so tight--the MT almost couldn't massage my lower back b/c it was so tight. But I took it very easy this weekend and have had NO PAIN at all. WOO HOO!!! I had a slight migraine yesterday, but I think the massage and taking it easy really helped. I got some shopping done and have a clean house so it was a pretty good weekend. My OB prescribed Vicodin for the migraines...I got Darvocet when I was pg with DS. I hate taking either one b/c they KNOCK ME OUT. I can't take them during the day b/c I have to work. Saturday and today I've dealt with acid reflux. It feels like my esophagus is on fire. Tums help but I hate them. I sure hope the 2nd half is better than the first half of this pregnancy. I don't want to sound like all I do is complain, but this is my blog and my personal thoughts...this pregnancy has been sooooo different than it was with DS.
Here is a belly shot DH took tonight. I thought I looked big before, but this one I think it makes me look bigger than I really am.
My ass looks huge! ARGH!!! I gotta get on that elliptical!
Speaking of the elliptical...it's finally made it's way to the basement. I didn't say it was put together yet...it's just IN the basement. Dh said it's going to take a while to get it all put together.
We took DS to see Santa today at the mall. For the first time since he was a baby, he sat on his lap by himself! I got a great picture too.
We wrote a letter to Santa before we left and then DS gave it to Santa. It was soooo sweet!!! I just love this time of year and seeing it through the eyes of a child. It's so magical. I can't wait to have 2 kids in that photo with Santa next year!!
I think that's it for me tonight. Sorry for the lag in blogging...but last week I tried to stay horizontal as much as I could to ease the back pain. Let's hope for a better week this week!! ;)
