Light bulbs - Did you know that at week 22 a baby can see light. Weird to think about being that there (hopefully) is not light switch in my uterus. I read an article that talked about women/couples putting a flash light on the belly for the baby to see. I have not tried this yet but I really want to (yes I know the harmful affects of rays – so don’t post anything about that- it’s just so fascinating)
Heartbeats – apparently some can hear the heartbeats if you put your ear to the belly around 22-25 weeks – there is contradicting guidelines.
Thank you for those that commented on my blog about my Me’s. It was nice not to receive a flogging.
Weight gain – Apparently Mini will be doing some growing double time for the duration of my pregnancy. Let’s hope it’s just Mini and not me. I am already a big girl, I just want to be healthy.
Sciatic Nerve – Yes, It’s making its presence known. It’s very irritated at me on my left hip/butt cheek area. I walk around some days with my hand pushing on it – Other days – its non-existent. Weird
Because I am a dork (basically) and I wanted to see which was least bad for me. (Because BOY do I really want a Sweet Tea or a Coke haven't had any in a while) I googled “which has less caffeine: tea or coke”. Then I googled “which has less sugar tea or coke”. (If anyone is curious I found this: Basically Coffee has the most caffeine, then Tea (I’m not talking health anti-oxidant green tea- I’m talking Sweet TAY people-you know the kind Britney is good at makin!), then a Coke. But in the sugar department, it seems that Coke has the most because it is the most uncontrollable. Although at a fast food restaurant where I would get the Sweet Tay – I would say that the sugars probably rival each other. Choices Choices Choices….
Cooking - Thing is usually a very simple and easy task for me. I have always enjoyed cooking and am not that bad at it either. Until NOW. I have burned more stuff this week than i have ever in my lifetime. First was the break'n bake cookies, then came chicken, now last nights stirfry.
Sleeping – uhm that has changed a bit. I was making it through the night w/o peeing – Now I am back to waking up to pee. Usually around 4AM. The alarm clocks go off at 5AM. This leaves little time to get back to sleep but, If I do get back to sleep, I don’t wake up until ~8AM – because our alarm clocks have decided to not use the Dual option alarm. (We have one of those smart alarm clocks that has 2 alarms- E’s works at 5- mine has decided to stop this week)
It still amazes me what people (who do not know you ) will ask you when they find out you are pregnant but not before they make sure to get in their belly rub in. If I know you ask away – but If you are a stranger on the street…. REALLY ? Do you plan on breastfeeding? Daycare or SAHM? How much weight have you put on? Are you sure there is only one? Natural or Epidural? Once they found out it’s a boy – Oh, Girls are more fun to dress up.
These are all things that have been said to me ion the past 2 weeks – Really! We have a dr’s appointment Thursday. I am sure it will be uneventful (or I hope so). I am curious to hear what the M.F.M dr told my Dr – if anything.
