Of OB visits and Stealth Teeth

I had my 21 week check up on Monday. It took longer to drive there then I spent in the offic (that includes the waiting room...since as soon as I signed in, they took me back).

Everything was good. I gained 5 pounds since my last visit a month ago which puts my total weight gain at 8 pounds. This time in my last pregnancy, I had gained 11 pounds since the previous appointment but had only gained half a pound up to that point. So I'm still in line with what I did last time weight-wise. And the baby's heartbeat was fine as was my blood pressure. In fact, TC was way impressed that my blood pressure was better than his (he gave blood that morning...good boy!).

I guess it's a good thing, though, that I totally forgot to go down the ice cream aisle at the store on Monday and get my weekly two pints of Ben & Jerry's Phish Food! Wonder if that had anything to do with the 5 pounds?

As for the stealth teeth, X-man has 'em. He's been really fussy since last week. And on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week he ran a fever. I was pretty sure it was due to teeth since I could see what looked like a giant tooth in the back on the bottom trying to come through. Well, yesterday I could see that the gums had broken there and a little tiny point was trying to come out. And then X-man giggled and I saw the top of his mouth. There, on either side in the back were two points that had already made their way through. Who knew! So, these stealth teeth are probably bicuspids which means there is quite a bit more tooth below the surface that needs to make an appearance. We'll all tough it out!

And I think these teeth are making X-man's tummy not so happy. He doesn't generally have very solid poopy diapers (he'll love that comment when he's 15) but the last few have been super runny! In fact, the nursery at church on Sunday came and got us after the service (before we went to Sunday School) because he had had two very runny diapers in the hour and a half he was there. I think they were tired of changing diapers.

Anyway, it's almost time for Homecoming and we'll be going! We haven't missed one yet, but it helps that my parents still live there so we always have a place to stay. And since it's TC's 10 year reunion, we'll get to see lots of friends that hadn't been to homecoming in a while! Ala Cumba!

Speaking of homecoming, ASH is wondering if y'all are going to the band breakfast? It's very strange to refer to myself in third person... :)

OH!!! It's been TOO LONG. I think about 21 weeks since I've been here? That's about when baby O was born, right? :-)

Congrats!! I'm so happy for you. I'm so glad all is well. Much love and I look forward to following (more closely) your progression in to TWO. I currently suck at it. :-)
