25 Weeks

Hello All!

I just got home from my doctors appointment with Dr. Gluck, my normal OB. Just a check up and listen to the heartbeat and measuring my tummy! He probably dreads my appointments because over the four weeks between my appointments I keep a list of questions on my notepad on my phone! But I am sure he's had more anal patients than me!

Heartbeat was good {at least I assume because he didn't say anything} and my bump is measuring at exactly 25 weeks which is good! I told him I was flying home tomorrow and he gave me my medical records to take with me should anything happen. Overall it was a boring normal appointment which is good... exactly what I want. I always enjoy my doctors appointments because it gives me peace of mind. I am a worrier by nature and going to hear her heartbeat and Dr. Gluck telling me everything looks good is comforting.

No news here! Tyler and I went to go see Jerrod Nieman on Saturday and had a good time. Molly is moving a lot especially at night. Some nights {like last night} she will literally keep me up all night because I think she uses my bladder as a punching bag! But, I welcome every single kick, punch, and movement. I'll stay up all night just to feel them. It's the most comforting feeling in the world.

I leave for Columbia tomorrow and I absolutely can't wait! I have a baby shower on Saturday. It's a little early, but I do live 1600 miles away and I wanted to fly when I was still comfortable. I also can't wait to see family and eat... Groucho's and Lizard's Thicket are calling my name! I will miss Tyler and Riley, though!
