6 weeks

Had my 6 week checkup today…everything seemed fine. I’ve dropped 20 pounds!!  It was nice to see Dr. McFarland again.  Its odd to see the OB so frequntly for 9 months and then all of a sudden not see her again.  She said to give Avi til about 12 weeks to develop his own routine and […]

Avi’s Birth!

Wednesday evening I went to a meeting at church and then came home to a full house…my mom, dad, sister, Bryan and Zoe were all hanging out and had saved a dinner plate for me.  After I ate we got on Skype with Bryan’s fam.  I started noticing some contractions just as we were saying […]

Taking it easy

Well I’ve been really relaxing and taking it easy this week, which is tough for me.  I miss going to the Y and swimming and going out to play alot with Zoe.  Thank goodness for friends who are taking her during the day to go play and be active.  It’s hard, though, since I feel […]

False alarm

Well, I’ve been getting a lot of painless contractions the last two days, so I thought I’d call the OB and see if I could get an appointment this week (they still had me on the every-other-week routine).  The doc told me at my last appointment to come in if the Braxton-Hicks/practice contractions got more frequetns.  […]
