Matthew is a trouble maker

So, I get over my issues last week and now there are new ones (of course...sigh). Looks like my little man is REALLY little. Today, I am 31 weeks but Matthew is measuring at 28 weeks. I also didn't gain weight, AGAIN. I promise I really am trying, too. I ate a ton this weekend and I've been trying to eat more each day. I just don't get it. So, I have an ultrasound this week to make sure he's okay. Everything else is checking out. Blood pressure is good, urine samples are fine, heartbeat is 150, and he moves ALL of the time... he's just tiny! They are going to check for kidney development and amniotic fluid, which both could be the cause. Mommy is also having to drink 16 ounces of Ensure a day (ew!), to help with the weight gain.

I'll keep you all posted on what's going on, when I know something.


Adam was a little ham today! My best friend ( of them) Amy is home for the week and we had breakfast, went shopping, and had a splendid day! "Mamy" is now one of Adam's favorite people (officially!). Aunt Amy DID buy him his favorite toy, when he was born-Stinky Bear- so it's only natural that she is a favorite of his.

The weather has been amazing! It's so nice to see flowers. I had some fun editing this one.

Happy Week, All!

Do you get the Ensure free from your doctor? If not, here is a rebate form for a free pack:

Too bad you can't just sit and eat chocolate all day! :)
