24 week appointment

I had my 24 week appointment yesterday. I can't believe how far along I am already. Anyways, I mentioned to the doctor that I've been having some cramping over the weekend. It's not been really painful, just uncomfortable. Anyways, she checked my cervix and everything looks good, not dilation or anything. But, she also did this swab test for Fetal Fibronectin. I guess a negative result can at least reassure you that you will most likely not go into labor early (or at least within the next 2 weeks). It's kind of scary thinking of having pre-term labor, when it's not anything I every suspected. I did still have some cramping last night, but it could just be feeling uncomfortable, braxton hicks, or some pain from scar tissue from the c/s. Hopefully it's nothing. The doctor just said if I have any bleeding, leaking discharge, or contractions to call. On a better note I got to hear the heartbeat on the doppler! I love hearing that little heartbeat! It won't be long now until I'm holding little man in my arms.

Yummy margarita!

I almost forgot I wanted to share my secret for a delicious non-alcoholic margarita! I tried one the other night and it was delicious. I just bought some non-alcoholic margarita mix and salt, but instead of tequila I used a shot of lime juice. Mix and serve on ice. It was delicious!

116 days to go...

Wow, so May 8th seems so far away, except when I think of it as only a little over 100 days. :0 The last few days I've been so exhausted. I'm worried maybe I'm getting a little bit of a cold, but I'm trying to take it easy. Hopefully it won't get worse. This horrible weather we've had is not helping I'm sure. On top of everything, work has also been super stressful. I said for 2010 my new year's resolution was to not sweat the small stuff. Or basically not stress over all these little things, that I have no control over. I feel like I spend so much time worrying about what could happen, and I just don't want to be that way. I want to enjoy every moment I can.
Last night I slept horrible. I woke up at about 4am and just could not go back to sleep. For some reason I started thinking about something Superdad did almost a year ago, that really upset me. Then I started feeling really angry with him. Weird I know. Once again I really want to let these things go. I want to live in the moment and be happy. Ugh, I think my emotions are just all over the place right now. Hopefully I can get a better nights sleep tonight. I also think I'm desperately in need of some girls time. I've not gone out, or done anything, with my friends since early November. It's definitely time for some girl talk!
