8.5 weeks left to go!

We had our 31 week doc appt on Monday. Everything is going well! His heartbeat was 138 and he's even more active that before. His favorite thing to do is to stick both of his feet up in my ribs and then stretch out his arms all at the same time! I guess he wants to show me how big he is getting! Pretty soon he won't have any more room to move. The doc estimated he's about 3.5 lbs, but I guess we won't know until he comes into this world. We will now have our appts every 2 weeks, and then once a week for the last month.

As of Monday, April 20th we'll have 8 weeks to go. That same day we'll have our 2nd class of the First Aid and CPR course. Brian will can be a life saver now!

Otherwise, I'm home sick for the past few days with the flu. I spent some time in Labor and Delivery yesterday as I wasn't able to keep anything down for over 15 hours, so I was told to come in. They hooked me up to an IV to rehydrate me and gave me some anti-nausea medicine. I still have not attempted to eat anything other than soda crackers since Tuesday, but today might be the day. Just trying to drink tons of water and sleep as much as I can. I thought I was going to go through this entire pregnancy without being sick, but I guess I lost that battle! At least it's not food poisoning like Brian and I thought, just the flu.

Sorry it's been awhile since I've posted. I'll continue to keep you all up to date!
