For all my readers (all 2 of you) who have been holding your breath waiting to hear an update of how this pregnancy is going, here it is. According to my 30 week appointment yesterday, everything is good. Weight gain looks good; measurements look good; fetal heart rate is good; movement is good; blood pressure is good, and so on and so forth. Now, I'm probably going to jinx myself by saying this, but this has been any easy pregnancy. This is probably why it catches me off guard whenever people ask how I am feeeeling. They always look so ready to hear some story about how terrible everything is because I'm pregnant. It makes me wonder if I'm disappointing them when I say that I feel good. Would they rather hear me whine about heartburn or complain that I still can't stand the thought of eating chicken? I just don't get it; I'm pregnant, not sick. Of course, now I'm going to develop some horrible condition and end up on bed rest for the next 10 weeks. I'll let you know how that turns out.
