1. Medical Stuff:

  • PT! Lots of rib manipulation work. At this point, we are trying to get me to labor with my ribs as “in” as they can be. My left side just happens to be the stubborn side…
  • I had my first baby stress test on Wednesday, along with an ultrasound to check my fluid, and an OB visit at the end. Everything was good! During the baby stress test, the nurse called our kid a “loud, wild child.” At my ultrasound after, the tech said your kid is “very, VERY active” (with wide eyes). That night, my big sister, Kristen, reminded me all about the laws of Karma…
  • 4 neighborhood walks. Still truckin along slowly with my sister’s pitbull in my ‘hood ; )

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I had my 22 week ultrasound on Wednesday! Cervix was good. Baby looked good. He/she was sleeping with its arm above its head (again)…just like how Brad sleeps…
  • 1 Day of PT. 3.5 miles cardio. My ribs keep slipping so we worked a lot on getting them, and hopefully keeping them in!
  • Two days of home rehab.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Infusion and acupuncture. Check and check.
  • 3 Days of Home Rehab. Ribs have still been giving me issues, but I’ve been trying to push through.
  • Too hottttttt. Way too HOT for this body. I’ve been trying not to complain, but it makes days harder for sure. So happy to wake up this morning to 60 glorious degrees. Please stick around for a while.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Had a different PT. We tried out some gadgets for pain control like a posture strap, trigger point gadget for necks, and exercises using two taped tennis balls for trigger points and stability work.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Loving the new treadmill along with my work on the recumbent bike too.
  • Second incredible acupuncture treatment. Second time falling asleep in the middle. Second time waking up to, “All done, Jennifer…Time to wake up, Jennifer!” As long as the treatments are amazing, I’ve decided I can be Jennifer. #maybejenniferwillbebilled #ivetried
