According to the books, I am now halfway into my pregnancy. (Actually, a little past at 21w, but the internets ate my first post and I was too bitter to write again til now.)

I’m starting to show, although mostly when I wear clothes that emphasize the belly (like the current empire waist style blouses that are popular). I’m still not in maternity wear… yet.

Just recently I’ve started to feel kicks and nudges on a more regular basis, and even played a short game of Kick Me, Poke Me with the bebeh. (In this sport, I feel a definite kick and I poke back at that spot. Within 30 seconds, I get another kick in the same spot. And I poke back. Repeat. The game ends after about four kicks, at which time the bebeh is sick and tired of getting poked and hides.)

At my last check-up, my BP, BPM, and weight were all good. Plus we got to hear the heartbeat again. (I loves me some doppler.) We scheduled another Level II sonogram and another check-up, which may include another glucola test and some bloodwork (iron levels). Fun for all (or just me?).

    Whee! Halfway there!
    Glad you are already learning to fight back against your tyrant tenant. It’ll get worse before the eviction.
    Enjoy that Glucola!
    Smooches to you and my neic-phew.

    PS: If you happened to accidentally glimpse the hamburger or hot dog in the next sonogram, I won’t complain 🙂
