We’re now at 23 weeks and have less than four months to go!
We did have a second ultrasound two weeks ago, so I need to get a couple new pics posted. Everything looked great, and the doctor kept the secret! I was so nervous that somehow we’d accidentally find out if we’ve got a little he or a little she on the way, but no such thing happened. Whew! We’re all in for a surprise in June!
Baby is growing and growing. This week the little one measures about 8 1/2 inches long (the width of a regular piece of paper) and is working its way up to 1 1/2 pounds. And yes, that means this mama is growing too. I’ll post a picture very soon, although I don’t feel like I look much different than the week 19 pic posted earlier. I’ll let you be the judge.
Everything else is going really well in Owatonna. I’ve been teaching for five weeks now and am getting into my groove. I work with a team of amazing teachers and my students seem to love the fact that their teacher’s having a baby. It’s all working quite nicely. I did have a nasty cold this week and took one day to stay home. I just have to say that I’m incredibly fortunate to have my own doc on hand. Comes in handy. Otherwise, I’m doing what I can to stay active since they say that a time will come when it won’t be so easy. I’m running a few times a week, lifting, and walking a lot. I can’t wait till it gets nice out so I don’t have to stay on a treadmill…but at least the gym has a TV! I haven’t watched this much Oprah in years!
