the entertaining bending habits of pregnant women



i am looking a little larger - it's funny how you spend so much time wishing for a baby belly and then you are like WHOA slow it down. that being said, i still feel pretty small and comfortable. though i have been insatiably hungry the past few days. trying to eat good things - doing an okay job. i thought it would be fun to share a few pictures of the interesting bending and snapping movements i have going on. i know this is what i look like when i do squats in my step class and it makes me giggle.

i tried to find a 'fun fact' about development and growth for you guys to go "ewww" about. instead, i found this tidbit ("MOM TIP!" is what it was titled) that made me snort milk out of my nose.

"Some expectant mothers wear a bell on their tummy. Thus, the baby becomes familiar with a happy tinkling sound along with the noise of the bowels and the beating of his mother's heart."

DEAR GOD. that is wrong in so many ways. who are these "some expectant mothers"? are they seriously comparing bells and bowels as similar happy sounds? and how do you tie this bell on you? do you wear it all day - to work, to bed? wouldn't it just jingle every time you moved? I DON'T GET IT. it makes me have mental pictures of moms tinkling bells furiously in front of their screaming newborns in a desperate attempt to soothe them. Karl says he is going to buy me a cow bell. DREAM BIG!

that being said, onofre has been moving around a lot in there. i thought i would feel more relaxed when the baby started moving around. but, really, i just think, 'is (s)he moving enuf? too little? too much on one side?" hahaha. i wonder silly little things like that. then i eat some pineapple and ono goes crazy jumping around and what not. the increasing consistency of movement makes me smile. kick away. i love soccer players.

the weekend is almost over. nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. why do they go so fast?

23 weeks, 2 days

Tubal Reversal Surgery said...

Hy ppl I just wanna share my knowledge about Tubal reversal…
Tubal ligation reversal involves microsurgical techniques to open and reconnect the fallopian tube segments that remain after a tubal ligation procedure. Usually there are two remaining fallopian tube segments - the proximal tubal segment that emerges from the uterus and the distal tubal segment that ends with the fimbria next to the ovary. The procedure that connects these separated parts of the fallopian tube is called microsurgical tubotubal anastomosis, or tubal anastomosis for short.

Tubal Reversal said...

Here I wanna some information about a Medical term that is called Tubal reversal and most of women’s didn’t know about it. So here I m providing you useful information…
A tubal reversal is a procedure to reconnect the fallopian tubes in a woman who has previously undergone surgical sterilization, known as tubal ligation. In a tubal reversal operation, the surgeon removes the portion of each fallopian tube that has been blocked or cut. Once the damaged portion has been removed, the tubes are reconnected to form a complete, open fallopian tube.
