Baby Update

So my appointment was today and nothing has changed from the one last week. The baby is still high although I swear she is trying to find her way down because I can't sit, stand or bend without a piercing sharp pain in the muscles in my lower abdomen. I have developed a bad case of heart palpitations, which my doctor thinks is related to the caffeine I drink. I only drink one 12oz. can a day, if that, but she says that the strain on my body is reacting adversly to the caffeine and unfortunately won't go away until after I have the baby. I have stopped drinking caffeine, but the palpitations are still there pretty bad. She gave me a referral to a cardiologist that I need to call tomorrow and set up an appointment. I don't think there is anything they can do for me, but it is a good idea to just keep an eye on it and make sure that it goes away after the baby comes. Other than that nothing major, just your usual discomforts and annoyances. I will keep the updates coming as I progress.

I'm glad you're doing okay. The heart thing makes me a little nervous but I'm sure you're right about it going away after the baby is born. Little Hannah will be here any day! So Exciting!!!
