The urine cultures came back fine.  No problems there.  I do believe now they were contractions however.  I have had a few sense but not very many so I’m trying not to worry about it.  For the most part it’s settled down.  I was going to head off to Houston this weekend with Jeremy but after having some pains Friday we decided it might not be the smartest thing to do.

Baby Uno is moving like crazy now days.  It’s nice to feel it multiple times a day.  Surefire way’s to feel the movement seem to be pop-tarts or listening to Mika.  Odd I know.  Steph, Mom and I were cleaning the kitchen yesterday and we had Mika on the ipod.  My nephews were dancing around like mad men.  No more than a minute later so was baby Uno.  It was fun.

Can’t wait for the big ultrasound… Only 10 more days!! 

Rockin’ and Rollin’
September 18, 2007

I’ve been so busy with getting ready to move and spending time with family that I’ve really neglected this blog.  Lets catch up!

I was sick for a while with a cold.  That is something I pray doesn’t happen again while pregnant!  It lasted for just over a week and I’m SO GLAD it’s gone.  When you can’t take anything for it, you realize just how much colds suck the life force out of you.

Today has been good.  I felt little Uno kicking me in the tummy so hard that I could feel it from the outside.  I bet within a week or so Jeremy will be able to feel it as well.  🙂  He’s excited.

Our next Doctors appointment is on Monday.  Jeremy has to work so Steph is going with me.   I’m so thankful for having such a supportive family.  I’m not sure what we’d do without them.

I Wanna Sing and Dance
August 9, 2007

All afternoon I have wanted to clean and pack.  I’ve been busting with energy but couldn’t move because I had to work.  Guess what, now I’m tired again, slightly icky and have no drive at all.  Pregnancy is fun people, so fun.  I also put on a tunic I used to wear all the time yesterday, it became painfully obvious that my stomach is no longer my own.  It’ll probably be the last time I’m able to wear it for about 10-11-12… well for a few months.

I’m going to go take a quick shower and then pack up all the books in our book shelf, motivation or not it will happen tonight.

Scented Candles Anyone?
July 17, 2007

The power went out the other evening.  It was just during sunset and I didn’t expect it to last hours so I was lazy about finding candles.  Next thing I know I’m scrambling all over the apartment to find every candle I have.  It was gross, all I had was scented ones.  Of course they were the ones I didn’t really like when I WASN’T pregnant.  Add on that lovely pregnancy sense of smell and I was gagging for a while!  I was one of the lucky ones (thanks to a basement apt.) that had the A/C on when the power went off so I just didn’t open any doors and windows till it came back on.

On the Pregnancy side of life, I’ve been doing really well.  Not sick nearly as often as I have been in weeks previously.  It still happens throughout the day but it’s not 24-7 so I’m a happy camper.  My stomach seems to have tapered off too with no new growth recently.  Part of me is worried about all this but on the other hand I’ve not had any cramping or bleeding so I’m assuming the little baby is doing great.
