    My update

    Top o' the mornin' to y'all.

    Happy to report that my doctor's visit went well yesterday. She said baby's head is up and that probably explains the sensation I am having up under my bra strap the past week or so. She said the baby's head is pushing the skin up. I am still having days where I feel like I am too small (Sheesh!!!!) but she reassured me that everything is right on target and that I am just carrying low. I have now put on 13 lbs (only 3 since my last visit) shocked with that as I felt I ate my way through my whole visit home. God this little angel has a big appetitie.

    My Mammy is here visiting now from Ireland and she was with me and got to hear the baby's heart beat and feel a little shoulder. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cute, eh?

    I am scheduled for my glucose test in 3 weeks. Cant wait for that!!!!!!
    It is really hitting me now how far along I am. Six months pregnant, ME ????

    Love Grainne

    WONDERFUL update!! SO glad that all is well. I also think my lil one is head up. I am always feeling the kicking in my cervix and WAYYYY down low in my vaginal area!! I also feel them up high though so that is why I think this baby is head up. Kaelyn was like that my WHOLE pg and NEVER changed. I ended up with a c-section which I am going to have this time anyway. Anyway, good to have you back and posting again after your trip.. Come on with your next belly picture!!!

    So glad to hear your OB appt. went well! How fun to have had your mom there with you! She must have really enjoy that time with you and your lil one! What does head up feel like? My kiddos have always been head down. What a strange feeling that must be. Although I still get kicked and punch both up high and down low.
    I'm glad you are back! It's great to hear how you are doing!

    What great news from your Dr.'s visit. It's so neat that your Mom got to attend your visit. I "dragged" my Mom with me a couple of times. She cried every time she heard the heartbeat. She says it's more emotional when your baby is having a baby. Only time will tell I guess.

    Good Luck to you!!!
