We are now at 6 months, with 4 more to go!! Baby Rex is now about 8 1/2″ and 1 1/2 lbs. Sooooo tiny still. 

Yesterday Baby Rex had his first inutero carnival ride. I trip over some therapy cords at work while setting a patient up. Do not worry! I landed on my hands and knees but the impact rocked me forward and I hit the top of my head on the ground. I was afraid my arms would give out so I had tucked my head in. Jammed my neck pretty hard. We’ve been in bed rest all morning but Baby Rex is busy jamming away. Thank God he’s ok! 

Today is also my BFF daughter’s birthday. Our wild diva who keeps our life interesting. Isn’t she a beauty?


Have you ever felt like you pulled a groin muscle? Like as if your nether regions did a million burpees? This is what we are dealing with now. Just the simple action of getting up from my work chair to walk takes the breath out of me. What the freaking hell? Suddenly I’m moving like a 90 year old arthritic woman. 

Guess what? There’s nothing to make it go away. I guess I could soak in an espsom salt bath to help with the aches but that means I have to climb into the tub. I can barely lift my leg to put my shoes on let alone climb a mountain to get in and out of a tub. Shoot me now!

23 week bump. He’s growing bigger and bigger! My first public pregnancy acknowledgment came from some random male employee at Walmart. He asked if he could touch my belly…šŸ˜§….no thanks! 

Also this week my feet have started to swell. I’ll need to buy some bigger shoes to accommodate my sausage feet. I even have cankles now. So sad!!
