Movin' and Shakin'

I had a doctor's appointment last night so she could check me out, but also to look over the ultrasound. She said everything looked normal with the baby. Then she "tried" to take the baby's heartbeat. As usual, the baby wouldn't sit still and I think the doctor got a hand cramp trying to move the instrument around my stomach trying to catch the heartbeat. From what she heard, she said it was normal. I have a feeling this kid is going to be crawling and running out of me.

The doc was also happy that I finally gained weight (since I am at week 19). I think I mentioned earlier that I gained weight and then lost it so ended up at my starting weight. I'm glad the baby is healthy but it is a strange feeling watching your weight go up since most of us spend our lives trying to stay thin and not gain a pound.

On a side note, the baby is the size of a mango!

I'm pretty sure that I'm allergic to mangoes. So therefore, I will not be going anywhere near your child.

You are also allergic to peanut butter but that never stopped you from eating peanut butter cups! Nice try to get out of babysitting though.
