I heard the best words I've ever heard at one of these prenatal appointments: "That's not
belly fat any more; that's all baby!" I was pretty sure that my big belly now was all Harriet
as it is shaped like the classic pregnant belly but given that my pre-pregnancy clothes still
fit and I'm six months pregnant, it's hard to judge what is me and what is Harriet.
I was also given the paperwork for pre-registration to fill out and return by the next
appointment. That appointment will be on July 12. I am currently seeing a different OB-GYN
because the one I was assigned is on her honeymoon. While both ladies are nice, I click better
with the stand-in and I think I'll make her my primary OB-GYN after Harriet is born.
The other good news is that I am really almost over my cold and I can take up to four
doses of Robitussin every day until it's over if I want. Personally I can't take that much
even when I'm not pregnant, but I will opt for two doses at night (once after work and once
before bed). She also listened to my lungs and they are clear. I don't have pneumonia nor
do I have bronchitis: that's a relief!
