She had a dr's appointment with the doc who took such great care of me, and she said everything went really well. They were running some labs, etc... But, she said she and baby are doing great (they even heard a heartbeat)!!!

Thanks for wondering about me.
I have been kinda hit and miss poking around.
Like Kim said....I went to her INCREDIBLE doctor. Check up went great. BP 118/66-
nice strong heartbeat from the babe and the labs all came back great.
I have had a headache on and off for a couple of days (I am blaming hormones and heat down here in TX)...other than that...I am my sloth-like
pregnant self! NO energy!!

Thanks again...I had meant to post, but I have putty brain......everything squishes in, but nothing sticks lonk enough to get done.

:-}

The "Placenta Brain" has kicked in, huh? I don't think I've ever quite recovered from mine! Glad to hear things are going well down in Texas.

I have been having some cramping......it goes away-not consistent. No spotting or anything else. It's amazing how much more "in touch" I am now with every little feeling.....with Peyton, it was I didn't know anything...didn't question much of anything anything. The cramping had me a little concerned, but a friend said it's probably ueteran (sp?) stretching. My next appt is 6/15.....so if I am feeling something WAY off I will probably call. But for now, things seem good.
Anne- I don't think you EVER recover from "placenta brain"....mine has definitely gotten to the point that I can't remember from one minute to the next, it's drivin' me nuts!!
Once again-thanks for thinking about me girls!

Hi Melissa,
I wanted to tell you with Ben (my 2cnd) I had a lot more cramps and pains then I did with Sam. I thought it was weird because ....well, didn't I stretch out enough with Sam?! But a few of my firends said that had more weird pains with their 2cnd. I think it's smart though if it gets worse to call....Hope all is well!!!
