1. Medical Stuff:

  • Busy week of appointments! I saw my shrink on Tuesday. It was a long, overdue appointment. I must get back to making mental health a priority.
  • I took Wednesday off from school for my 24 week ultrasound and OB appointment. Baby J was moving and waving. I am definitely feeling baby more which is ahhhmazing. Cervix looked good, baby looked good, heart rate and measurements were good…keep doing your thing, baby.
  • Got my head stitches out on Wednesday.
  • Got my flu shot.
  • Acupuncture appointment. She puts the needles in my legs and head. As usual, I passed out and had to be woken up.
  • Struggling with more headaches, neck pain, and jaw pain. I think things may be getting looser as I grow bigger with baby. Watching this closely so I can be proactive.

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:

  • 1 Day of PT. Elliptical, scap training, heat, and OMM.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. 3 Miles, strengthening exercises.
  • I saw the dermatologist. The saga of my cyst continues…I will be getting it cut out once and for all in September. The doctor said it will be painful that night, but I should be okay after that. Stitches for 10 days after. The rest of my skin looked good. No worrisome spots!
  • We had our anatomy ultrasound! It went really well. When it was time to scan under the belly button they had us look away. SOOOO, someone out there knows what we are having…but we have to wait 20ish more weeks.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Now that the cat is out of the bag, I can actually talk about ultrasounds! Because I am high risk in four areas, I get to see the babe often…I guess that is a plus of being a GERIATRIC pregnant woman…;) Monday, I had an US and baby was not having it. It was in the same mood I wanted to feel…curled up in a ball, sleeping, with an arm over the head so it didn’t have to acknowledge the “paparazzi.” Everything looked and measured good! I am getting to the halfway point!
  • I had to go to my PCP to get my annual accommodation letter for my school district. Easy peasy.
  • I am being referred to a dermatologist because I have a cyst that won’t leave. My PCP has tried twice to remove it and it keeps returning, so now it is time for the big guns. Fun. Times.
