25 Weeks

Well, this week has been quite eventful! Brian finally got to feel Noah move last Friday night!!! He is so happy now :-) Also, Sunday morning, I saw him move and was higher positioning that he has been. Finally moved above my belly button. Was so surreal to see my stomach move around like that! The nursery furniture is all assembled and ready to go. I will probably be starting to wash some of the clothes and put them in the dresser soon since I have a whole closet full and would like to know what all he has. Mom and I hit garage sales last weekend, and came home with 5 bags of clothes (on top of the 4 she brought before we started) from NB to 18 mo! This boy is going to be set with clothes for a while... time for another weekly update....

21 Weeks

Well last week I went in to see my OB on Friday because I was still dealing with spotting. She said my cervix is irritated and soft (but long and closed), and that's what was causing the spotting. She put some ointment on it. She listened to Noah's HB and it was strong in the 150s, and she said he is growing nicely. She isn't too worried about it right now, but also swabbed me for any kind of infections. No word yet on those results. No spotting since Sun am... so maybe the ointment she used did the trick!?! I can only hope so!
