25 Lovely Weeks
Today I am 25 Beautiful, Fantastic & Wonderful weeks pregnant. I know I always say this, but time is just flying! 6 months and 1 week my bug and I have been together now. I am blessed beyond words. I have a beautiful baby boy growing inside my body, I have a wonderful husband, I have a great family and I have fantastic friends. I have my pets, a roof over my head, food to eat and health insurance. There isn't much else that I could ask for. Our Heavenly Father has made sure that I have all I need.
My niece is so cute. She feels my belly waiting for Cody to kick or move. She also kisses my belly every time she sees me. I hope that my mom will get a picture of that one of these days. I would love to post it :O)
Happy 25 weeks Bug, Mommy and Daddy love you very much!!
This morning I had an emergency visit with my OB. I was having contraction like pains that were coming every few minutes and were going from my abdomen to my back. At first I thought they were just the worst gas pains I had ever experienced in my life. However, I do know what contractions feel like and that is what they felt like. So, I went to my OB's office and he checked my cervix and cervix is still closed and tight. I wore a fetal monitor for quite a while and Bug's heartbeat was great and strong and the machine didn't really register any contractions. However, Dr did say that at 25 wks, sometimes the monitor will not pick them up. So, we had an ultrasound and all looks good. Bug weighs 1 lb 11 oz and is growing right on target. Lengthwise he is about a week ahead (normal for him) So, I am pretty much put on bed rest this weekend. He thinks that my pains may be from my uterus "catching" on all the scar tissue from the 3 surgeries I had last year. However, I had a choice of resting at home or at the hospital and I chose home. So, please keep my little bug in your prayers. He is active as usual and all looks good, so I am hoping it is just the scar tissue and not anything else. So, the u/s pic is from today. It is his face looking towards the u/s wand.
*Do not know why this is showing as Thursday being that today is Friday, but I am 25 weeks on Friday 3/27*
