It's Been A While!

Okay, so it has been a little while since we last blogged. I think it was right before our cruise and I had just fallen down the stairs. Things are still looking good. We had a wonderful time on the cruise! Since this blog is mostly about Herm, I have included one of the few pictures that Herm managed to be noticable in! What do you think of the gear? Again, we had a great time, but the travel back on the planes was horrible! It was one for the record books and we have had our fair share of travel woes!

We had our last baby appointment on April 2. Herm was not pleased with Mommy playing too much with the heartmonitor the night before, so he/she flipped around and made it very difficult for the doctor to find him/her! He still managed to find Herm's heartrate which was high as always (mid 160's). That was about it. The biggest news out of that appointment was scheduling the 20 week sonogram! That is all in the next post though. Mommy has been having some Braxton Hicks contractions early this time. The doctors all say it is normal. For those of you women who are pregnant or will be in the future, Mommy learned a trick! If you are experiencing BH contractions often, take some benedryl and four glasses of water, then lie down for a little while. I guess what ever makes you drowsy in benedryl also calms your system down (although it didn't do much during the KU/Memphis game!!!!)

Mommy plans on posting an update with pictures after this post so stay tuned!
