I feel like I am always at the doctor. I have my monthly OB appointments, monthly endocrinologist appointments and the past two months the appointments with the maternal and fetal medicine doctor. Two specialists a month is bad on the wallet. Good news is that is more paid toward our deductible and less we have to pay when the baby is born. I wish Danny was in the army already... I could have this boy on base and only pay $20. Wouldn't that be nice? I guess we will just have to deal on this one and thank God I got a teaching job this year and have health insurance again. I am excited because I actually have questions to ask today! Whenever she asks, I usually go completely blank and stare back at her and mumble "I don't know" Well, I've had some interesting things happening to my body lately and I need to know if they are normal. I have read that they are, but these things aren't supposed to occur until the middle or late third trimester. I'm in the middle of the second trimester... also, Dr. Weiss said the baby weighed 10oz last Thursday. I was 18w3d. According to the averages I've seen that's 3 oz heavy. So at 13 weeks, he was 1/2 in longer than average and now he's 3 oz heavier than average... Am I paranoid or is he a really big little guy?! Anyway, as long as he is healthy I guess it doesn't really matter. I just remember my mom telling me when Danny and I got together (keep in mind he was 70 pounds heavier then) that our kids would look like weeble wobbles. I don't want weeble wobble kids! I won't let that happen... my kids are going to be healthier and make better choices than I have. At least that is my hope for them!
