I woke in the middle of the night to the sound of ice banging on a tin roof. Dang that was loud. I put my ear plugs back in and luckily fell right back to sleep. Then, when I left my apartment I noticed we got about 5 inches of snow where we live. And that’s just the beginning I’ve heard.
I went to the doctor this morning and everything’s perfect as far as we know. The heartbeat is spot-on and I’ve gained 9 pounds total (as of tomorrow I’m supposed to be at 10 pounds so that’s good). After this week I think I’m going to stop saying how much I’ve gained because it’ll depress me but I just want to remember that I’m on track. Tomorrow I’m going to have Brandt take a picture of my belly so I can post it here. I’ve definitely got a bump.
I also got some blood drawn. That never really bothers me and I’ve had WAY bad experiences in the past. They’re checking for spinal problems and chromosome counts. I think everything’ll be ok but I’m going to call next week to make sure, knowledge is key…
So, tonight Brandt comes home (weather dependent) and on Monday we find out! I seriously can’t wait but I can’t believe I’m 20 weeks along tomorrow.
