Letters to Baby K - Week 23

I am pleased to announce that I don't have any crazy stories for this week! No ER visits, no weird pains, just normal life. Finally! Now, if only the next 17 will just remain calm and pain free we'll be in business...wishful thinking? Probably. Today, I visited my doctor who informed me that the next time I come in I will have to do the Glucose test...groan...Hopefully it's not as bad as I'm anticipating. We'll also be checking to see if my placenta has moved into a more favorable position. If you missed that post, I ended up in the ER due to bleeding from stress and found out that my placenta was only .9 cm away from the cervix opening when it should be 2 cm away, not good. For the time being they weren't super concerned, but said that if it didn't move I may have to go on bed rest later in my pregnancy. Let's hope that's not the case!

On a happier note, I am really looking forward to my maternity session with the fabulous Candace Moore from Minerva House! The weather looks like it will be cooling off right in time for our photoshoot and I know Candace will have something way creative and beautiful up her sleeve! I'll be sure to post photos as soon as I have them!

As you can see, I'm quickly working my way towards "large and in charge" status, haha! I feel like I'm growing (belly-wise) so much each and every day. According to the doctor's office I've only gained 7 pounds but there is no way that can be true! I mean, yeah, I'd love if that were true, but I don't think they had the right pre-pregnancy weight for me. According to my daily weigh-ins I've gained right at 13 pounds. That seems to be right on track for week 23 according to all of the pregnancy apps I have. Fingers crossed that I don't gain much more than 30 pounds so that it's easy to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight! Things like rolling out of bed, reaching across the counter, and picking something up off the floor are becoming harder, but not completely unbearable. It's so weird struggling with normal daily tasks...Lord help me when I'm 30+ weeks pregnant and can't do these normal things! It really makes you appreciate being healthy and able to do these simple tasks when not pregnant.

At week 23 Peyton is the size of a pomegranate, measures around 11.5 inches from head to heel and weighs about 1 pound! Wowza! If I can already feel him running out of room what the heck is it going to feel like when he's 6 pounds!? Good grief...

If this is your first time on the blog feel free to check out some of my previous pregnancy posts! I hope you'll stick around for the long haul!

  3. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose
