a tardy pregnancy update, this was from 2 weeks ago.

currently: 7.5 months (at the time of the picture, 7 mos.)

weight gain: 3 lbs.

last month's prediction update: see what i told you? the pop out is getting out of control. every time i turn to the side ben says "woah" to my profile. nice.

complaints: sciatica, which i now have to see a chiropractor & physical therapist for. yip, yip. i also experienced a crazy charlie horse cramp in both of my calve muscles one morning that lasted about 5 minutes. (has anyone else had this happen?) i woke up yelling for ben to help me because my muscles were stuck and i could not get them to release. apparently it comes from a calcium deficiency. i have now added about 12 glasses of milk a day to my diet. it was a traumatic experience. bonus? after a 5 minute work-out, my legs look fantastic.

current action: well let's just say that as i lay & type this, the laptop sitting on my stomach has caught air a couple of times.

prediction for next month: no stretch marks as of yet, but i feel they may be just around the corner. i was lucky last time & didn't get any because caleb was so teeny. but i have a feeling in my gut (no pun intended) that i will not get out scar-less this time.

ps-caleb wants to show you his bus. at least the mirror's semi-clean. semi.

I get those dang charlie horses to, but I HATE milk so I guess I will just bare it.

Looking good Lyns! At 7 months that is not huge, remeber me and my swollen body, yeah!
Seems like all the prego women get those charlie horses, so did I. I took Calcium supplements and that helped.
Have a merry Christmas!
