25 weeks

I've hit 25 weeks today!  I turned 25 years old the other day...the night before my birthday i told Jeremy that it was my last day as 24 and being 24 weeks. 
I've officially made it to viability.  So if i were to go into labor the baby would have a 50-80% chance of survival.  It's definitely not ideal, but it does make me feel a little bit better knowing that she's got a chance if anything did happen.  When i was 21 weeks i started getting some bad braxton hicks contractions.  I called up the nurse to see how many was too many.  She said 5 or more to call her back.  So i sat on the couch, drinking my water and counted.  There was about 4 an hour for a couple hours.  I started to get a little panicky.  I know braxton hicks are normal, but this felt too soon...and definitely too soon to go into labor.  They got better through out the rest of the day.  Down to about 1-2 an hour and then less.  I still get them through out the day, but not as many and i try not to worry as much.  (easier said than done for me...I'm a worrier).  Other than the braxton hicks, some occasional back pain, and the pesky acid reflux I've been feeling pretty good.  My belly button is starting to poke out.  Not quite "popped" but if i wear a tight shirt you can see it sticking out.  

We were suppose to go to Colorado this week, but decided maybe we should stay home for a couple different reasons.  I do think it would have been kind of boring/miserable with a 13 hour drive (x2), trying to hike, drink lots of water, bathroom breaks, and not worrying about everything.  It's doable but i think im glad we stayed home.  Maybe next summer we can do a fun trip somewhere...with the little babe! 

I always feel kinda silly posing for pictures that aren't group shots with other people.  I can't come up with fun poses and i usually end up making some stupid face.  Jeremy will take a bunch of pictures and wont tell you when he's snapping so you click through them later and most of them turn out like this...

Or i'll try to come up with a new pose...

I guess it's all just for fun anyway....something to look back on later!

A Spring Arrangement

Back in April while the trees were still blooming i cut a few branches to add to this arrangement.  The hellebore's are also from my backyard.  I only bought the tulips and ranunculus.  

I remember it was actually quite chilly on this day and when i was driving in to dance there were snow flurries.  This was probably mid April and I wasn't happy with the cold.  It was a long winter, but these flowers were pretty and springy!

Ditty of the Day

Yesterday we went for a long walk.  When i left the house i thought about changing my shoes, but i knew i had worn those sandals walking for hours before and thought I'd be fine (wore them all day just about everyday in Thailand). Well i don't know if it's because i haven't walked that far in 6 months, gained weight, or my feet were just sweaty and swollen, but when i got home i had 2 big blisters on the bottoms of each of my feet. When we were half way done i knew they were hurting and when i stopped they would burn and hurt worse.  I struggled to make it back to the car, adding an extra waddle to my already pregnant waddle.  I didn't notice the blisters till a little while later.  One big one on the ball of my foot and another about an inch long on the outer side of my foot...on both feets!!  The rest of the evening i hobbled around.  I got up a couple times in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and couldn't go back to sleep and then "Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes"  kept running through my mind.  Not sure why, but i kept humming it. The blisters are still there and I'm still hobbling around on my heels.  I will definitely have to wear better shoes next time!

I'm pretty sure I've posted other Paul Simon (or Simon and Garfunkel) songs on here before, but they are one of my favorite artists!
