A Mac2.0 update

I realize with Bubby I blogged all the time about pregnancy - because that was what the blog at the time was about.  Now this blog is about everything - Bubby, Mac2.0, the journey the Hubs and I are on, my thoughts on everything from politics to parenting to poetry.  So here is an update just on this pregnancy:

  • I am 25 weeks.  Apparently I do not look that pregnant because every week I hear from someone (when they find out my due date) that I am looking very small.  I do not know how to take this, so I just smile and shrug.  Is it a compliment?  A put down?  I am eating, and I think I am about the same size I was with Bubby...
  • Speaking of eating, my current cravings are (though I have not indulged in them all): anything pumpkin (that is more seasonal than pregnancy, I think), Mexican food, chili-cheese fries, strawberry jello with pineapple in it, ice cream, Chick-fil-a, ...
  • Mac2.0 moves mostly at night - as in while I am trying to go to sleep.  He also likes to jump/stand/move all over my bladder.  
  • I get heartburn with pretty much anything - spicy, greasy or bland and healthy - it doesn't matter.
  • I switched this week to having my brother give me my weekly progesterone shot since he has medical training.  This exercise in trust saves me the forty dollars a week I was being charged (not including the prescription) to have a nurse give me them.  Did I mention having kids is expensive?  Especially for us with our highrisk status.  Totally worth it though.
  • I think I get my steroid shots in three weeks.  
  • My lower back hurts, but not as bad as it did with Bubby.

  1. Except for the shots (or the pumpkin, ewwwwww!!) Especially the fact that I was ALWAYS small.


Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with me.
