22 weeks...really

And one day!

No news is good news right? That is what I am claiming anyway!! Tuesdays appointment was rather uneventful. The weekly ultrasound was great. The little guy looked great, with his hands and feet all up by his face. I can barely touch my toes so he did not get those hamstrings from me. Oddly enough, his arms and legs are measuring on the "long" side. He is very good at using them to remind me of his presence throughout the day. And anyone else watching, for that matter. The ole cervix is still holding strong.

Dr. B was glad to hear that I have not been taking the medicine very often. The contractions seem to be less frequent. Either that or I am just a little more relaxed about having them now. Probably a little of both. Regardless, the past week was relatively calm in-utero. I cannot tell you what that does for my sanity! I have never been so grateful for mental peace.

For now, we will just keep praying for many more weeks like this to follow! 14 or 15 would be great! :)

Super news! Yes no news is great news!!! I was hoping that was the reason for the wait on the post!

I'm so glad to hear the great news! I've been praying that you can start enjoying your pregnancy and not worrying all the time. Maybe you can get to that point. We will continue to pray for you and the little baby.

you think you didn't have much news but just hearing how he's growing and kicking and how you are letting the excitement (even though it is cautious and guarded)bubble to the surface is very reassuring to all who read your updates. hope you have a lot more "uneventful" checkups to come!
love ya, carla
