My Head Returned, at least for now.

I feel much better then my absentee mind last week...I didn't forget a single thing this week! :) (pat on the back for me) although, I did have to make an unplanned trip into the doctor on Monday night....This weekend was a busy one, I helped my mom at a bazaar all day Saturday and this funny thing happened I had a braxton hick contraction , in fact I had 4 that day. I knew what they were and I wasn't worried, I felt funny but kept my head on. And if you know me, I am a control freak, I like to know whats going on at all times and for this to happen at only 22 1/2 weeks is a little abnormal, I should have been panicking, but I wasn't!!!
Then on Monday the in laws were staying with us and we did a spontaneous trip to the Clackamas Mall to Christmas shop and spend some gift cards they had brought us for Baby Reagan. *love free things!!!! Jim & Kathy are just the best ever. We ended up spending 4 hours shopping on top of me already having worked in our church' coffee shop that am and substitute taught for Kindergarten! So at this point my body was not happy with me, I had 6 contractions in a matter of an hour so I called up the doctor they had me come here we are sitting in the exam room I am trying to remain calm but I am a little freaked out, husband was such a rock (I don't expect anything less from him, he is so strong ALL THE TIME) he laid his hand on my belly and prayed and i could see  him processing this new event and as I looked at him I knew no matter what, that we would be okay, she would be okay.  The love I see come from him for his daughter is breath taking.
So turns out WE ARE GREAT. Baby R is growing like a champ in fact she has helped me gain a whopping 7 pounds this last month (on top of the other pounds I gained the first 4 1/2 months) !!! Nice right?! They just told me to take it easy and drink more water then I already am and just keep my eyes on things. And that I probably will have them the rest of my pregnancy. Awesome!!!
 What made me laugh the most was my that my new doc ( who does not know me and does not  know I am a freak and can handle self control) was a little worried that I was 3 pounds over my scheduled weight gain....and said "you know a lot of first time moms eat what ever they want to during pregnancy" I smiled and said "Ya that's not me! I have discipline"
** for example on Sunday when a maple bar was screaming my name at church I informed my sweet friend Holli to sell all of them so I can not have one!" and she did! High Five the  Joint effort in this keeping Nicole eating correct.
Long story I do apologize for that, but this is my life now, one long story after another.

Week 23 today, we are the size of a Grapefruit (I feel like she should be bigger cause I feel huge but that is coming or so I am told) She now can hear sounds and will begin to recognize voices and noises! how cool!!!
