I "cant" believe it!

Wow! Jackson is now the size of a canteloupe. He is getting bigger and bigger, which caused all sorts of drama for mommy this past weekend. Thursday morning as soon as I woke up I felt a ton of pressure and my back was hurting. It hurt to walk, sit, or anything. It was a very uncomfortable day. I thought for sure I had another infection of some sort. So I called my doctor. The nurse told me to come in for a urine test and they would see if I had an infection. My mom and I left work early to go to the doctor's office. When I got there I was feeling so much pressure. I told the receptionist (who, oh my word, looks so much like Shu Shu it's not funny. I want to take a picture of her every time I am in there! LOL.) that I was in pain and she let the nurse know. The nurse told me that the doctor wanted to check me while I was there. EEE. My first time being checked! My urine test came back fine--no infection. He checked me and I was fine there, too--no dilation or anything like that. Jackson's heartbeat was in the 150's and everything looked great. So, he told me he thinks my body is just going through a lot right now...muscles tearing, things stretching, etc. He said my body is having a hard time keeping up with the changes that are taking place, so he told me to cancel all of my plans for the weekend and rest. Well, I had class Friday night and all day Saturday. So, I took off of work Friday. Oh, and did I mention we had company come in on Thursday? Great timing! I felt like such a lazy bum the whole time Alex and Adam were here! Alex was great though...she did my laundry, dishes, and housework like a pro while I laid up in the recliner! :-) I felt rough all day Friday...very tired and still a lot of pressure. I started to feel better Saturday during the day. We can tell when we use our fetal doppler that he is still extremely low. Since he is getting bigger, he is putting more and more pressure on my bladder, therefore I am going to the bathroom constantly! One good thing---I started feeling him move this past weekend! I felt him on Friday. He was kicking on my left side. Well, as of today he is kicking on my right side, so I guess he has done a switcheroo. He is extremely active. This morning I felt him right after breakfast, and then I felt him again around 3 this afternoon. I always feel him at night when I lay down on my back. When we are using our fetal doppler, I can hear him kick and feel it at the same time. It's pretty cool. I think Jay is ready to feel him kick soon! Jackson has a ton of clothes already. He will be well dressed, that's for sure. My parents bought our diaper bag for us this weekend at Carter's Outlet. Exciting! Buying stuff for a baby is so addicting. I really have to control myself. Well, I gotta go for now. Just wanted to give the fruit of the week with a quick update!
