The Geer Family
Sorry it's been so long since I've last written.  We have been very busy with AAU basketball with travelling tournaments almost every weekend and I have been working 3 days a week in Chapel Hill at my friend Amanda's new salon.  TJ had a tournament this past weeken in Morrisville and they went undefeated and won the tournament for the 8 & under division.  This kids were very excited and played very well!  TJ had a lot of supporters come and watch him.  Ed's parents came to see him play for the very first time.  My mom, Laura,Patrice & Chris all came to see him.  He was so excited that everyone was there.  We went out to eat with Laura after the 3rd game on Saturday night and he was so tired that he fell asleep in her lap in the restaurant! 

We had an appointment on Monday and an ultrasound yesterday and everything seems to be going well so far.  I am 32 weeks and 3 days along now, which means that my belly should be measuring 32cm from the bottom of my uterus to the top.  On Monday I measured 34.5cm so I am a little ahead of schedule but they assured me this was okay.  I have gained a total of 22lbs during the entire pregnancy.  Not too bad....

I have been getting some pretty bad headaches lately which are causing me to be even more tired than usual and they seem to be located mainly behind my left eye.  The doctor checked it out and told me the only time they really worry about headaches is when the patients blood pressure is high.  Since my bp is normal, he just told me to keep taking regular Tylenol.  I also have a "hot spot" located on the upper right side of my belly, right below my ribs.  It feels as though I have burnt myself there and is very tender to the touch.  This is where the baby's hands and feet are constantly kicking me so he seems to have hit a nerve which causes the burning sensation.  This is very common and nothing to worry about.  It's only on the surface and the doctor told me to put a cool compress on it if it really starts to bother me.

At our ultrasound appointment yesterday we were told that the average fetus size for a 32 week old baby is between 4-4.5lbs.  Apparently, Christopher already weighs 5.3lbs!!!  We didn't get too many good pictures of him this time because he was hiding behind my uterine wall but I do know that he has fat cheeks, just like me.  The kind that everyone will want to squeeze.  I think he has Ed's nose but Ed swears he looks just like me so we'll see!

7.5 weeks left to go!
