|20 week shot!|
I am of course really nervous that there will be something wrong. But also doing lots of praying and trusting that this baby is in God's hands. I keep reminding myself that Noelle and Jonah were both on the tinier side, though there weren't concerns until later on in my pregnancy with each of them. The nurse practitioner suggested I drink two protein shakes a day to help up my calories. I'm not sure I can handle two a day, but I figure between at least one shake, and then copious amounts of peanut butter, that should help get some good, healthy fats and protein into me and baby.
Last week Jonah had his first trip to the dentist! We ended up having to find a new one because the one we've been going to for the past few years stopped taking our insurance, which was really sad because we love Dr. B! But the new dentist seemed really nice, and I also got my mouth checked while we were there because I've been having some sensitivity here and there. Based on some general 2nd trimester approved guidelines, they were able to take an x-ray and saw that an old filling needed to be replaced. That took about an hour, and thankfully both kids contentedly sat and played on tablets while the dentist worked on my mouth. Then Jonah sat in the chair like a big boy, opened his mouth, and took the fluoride like a champ. Definitely a world of difference from Noelle's first time when we basically held her down so the dentist could take a quick look in her mouth.
It's hard to believe we're already halfway through March, but I am looking forward to some consistent spring weather!
