Things are going fair here. I still have some moments of discomfort but I am getting Physical Therapy and I think it will help me in the long run.

I have had great motivation to do my exercises. In fact, the abdominal exercises that were irritating my cervix at first have not caused me any more discomfort.
I am sure glad that the exercises didn't cause me to feel so achy last week, although what DID cause me to feel achy was pretty bad. It ended up being a nasty flu bug.
I think it helped me to post some of my concerns on the bulletin boards and hear from other women who have gone through a c-section. While the thought of surgery doesn't necessarily scare me, I do not like surgery nonetheless.
Wow! I am 25 weeks pregnant today! Never, ever could I imagine myself getting this far into pregnancy. This is such a wonderful feeling.
This has been a busy week. My mother-in-law and father-in-law headed for the open road to take a vacation and visit one of their five sons. While they are away, they asked me to drive their youngest two children to and from school.
I had another doctor appointment today. Today was the day to test for Gestational Diabetes. At my previous appointment, my doctor asked me which flavor of drink I wanted for the test.
Well, I met with my physical therapist this week. I was so glad I didn't have to get plugged into the biofeedback this appointment.
Since I had those early contractions, I have been taking it easy. My whole belly has been sore to touch but the discomfort has eased up a bit.
I finally made it to the 28 weeks! I am so excited to have made it this far. This was the first major milestone that I felt like celebrating. If I were feeling better, I would be dancing around the house!
