We are 21 weeks this week. Things are progressing nicely! The girls are kicking like crazy (especially at night and after lunch) and Si has had fun trying to feel them=). Some of the not so nice pregnancy things are starting to set in though. . . pelvic pressure and the feeling that I CONSTANTLY have to pee are new on the agenda this week. Oh, and we can't forget about our friend Braxton Hicks contractions - yup - throw some of those in there too! Funny how last week I didn't have any of these issues (except the occasional BH contraction) and this week I've been steam-rolled with new issues!
I did call my OB about the pelvic pressure and the constant feeling that I needed to pee - and they thought that maybe I had a bladder infection or a UTI. So, they requested that I come into the clinic quick and pee in a cup. They told me if I came in that they would do a fun ultrasound scan just so I could see the girls. Do they know how to get me to come in or what? I was there in under 30 minutes!
The "sample" was totally clean - no UTI or bladder infection. But, they decided today that they are going to treat me for an infection anyway. Sometimes apparently they can hide and my symptoms indicate that I may have one. Fine by me. I'd rather be treated just in case! As for the ultrasound - the girls look wonderful as always! She tried to get some 4D pictures of the girls for me, but they still look like creepy aliens on the 4D! I still love them though! =)
Oh, and of course we have belly pics for you! Si just took new ones tonight. So, here is your picture fix for the week. Me at 21 weeks 2 days.
Hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!! Stay safe (and cool)!
