Just an update...

Old Business

1 - Yep, my hip problems are still lingering, but they are much better than they were in January. As big as I've gotten so far with the pregnancy, my hips don't seem to have noticed, so that's a good sign. We're keeping our fingers crossed!

2 - The pregnancy is going well! I'm officially 20 weeks today and we have the medical ultrasound on Tuesday. We did admittedly go get a gender check ultrasound at 16 weeks and we're happy to announce that we are having a BOY if we haven't already informed some of you. (We try, but my brain is shot right now and I can't remember anything...)

3 - Seth is doing just as well as ever. I think he's the healthiest one in the houe right now. He's a sweet little guy and always so content. He gets smarter every day.

New Business

4 - Jason tore his soleis muscle in his calf so he will be laid up for a little while. He's really good with crutches though, so he can still move faster than me if needs be. lol. The doctor said 4-6 weeks of crutches and his brace, and then a little physical therapy after that. We were excited that it wasn't going to take longer than that to heal. Jason's being a trouper and has only taken one percocet and a few ibuprofen.

5 - Jason was more tired than me most days and having to sleep in every morning despite a decent diet, regular exercise, and 8 hours of sleep a night. So he went to the doctor and found out he basically has too much yeast in his digestive system. He's on a strict no yeast, cultures, or sugar diet which has been weird to say the least. He stays on this diet for a month and then slowly weans himself off of it and it's supposed to help a lot. Mean while, because of the pregnancy, I have an aversion to red meat (which is one of the things Jason is supposed to eat). It reminds me of a wonderful poem I know:
Jack Sprat could eat no fat.
His wife could eat no lean,
And so betwixt the two of them
They licked the platter clean!

6 - For those of you that don't know, I bashed in my mouth when I was 13 or 14 years old and it never healed correctly. I have two fake teeth now but since the bone never grew back my gums don't have anything to connect to so they are receding far enough that you can see the hardware that holds my teeth in my mouth that is supposed to be covered by bone. So we are forced to fix the patched up job the specialist did when I was younger and I am THRILLED!!! It involves a bone graft, a skin graft, 3 different sets of temporary fake teeth while I heal for months, etc. etc. But at least I will be able to eat apples like a normal person, and lettuce, and anything you bite with your front teeth really! Yay!

Awesome. First of all, congrats on being prego again. Very cool. Second, I just got my front tooth knocked out and can only imagine how much more suck you have to deal with. Good luck!
