I have changed the name of my placental lake from Noelle Lake to Lake Noelle. It’s a small difference, but I think Lake Noelle sounds a little better. Am I a little egotistical to name it after myself?
Jeff told me that yesterday Rachel went to nursery. That’s a little early since she doesn’t turn 18 months until March 22, but I guess he figured he could hang out in the hallway with her, or he could hang out in nursery with her. He chose nursery. I’m kind of sad I missed Rachel’s first day of nursery, but I suspect that even if she had waited until March 22 I would have missed it anyway.
Rachel and Jeff came by to visit yesterday after Rachel’s nap, and before going to Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Rachel was so sweet. She always greets me with a kiss and a hug, and she says “mama” to me now.
Sounds like I was having some more uterine irritability again yesterday. My nurse was speculating a possible cause, that baby Gaby is pretty active. She’s not really any more active than any normal baby, but that my uterus is sensitive to it. She said that while I was on the monitor it seemed that when baby Gaby kicked, my uterus reacted. This is mere speculation, but hey, speculation is my favorite sport.
So here’s some exciting news. Today I’m 24 weeks. Yeah!
While I was on the monitors this morning I could hear that baby Gaby has hiccups. Actually the nurse pointed it out to me, but then I could totally hear it.
Well, my doctor has come and gone, and all is well. She says that I am very stable, so it looks like bed rest is serving its purpose. And I don’t just mean getting me out of housework.
