23 Weeks Now!!

I went for my monthly OB visit today.  I saw Dr. Bruton for the first time and I loved her!  She's very down-to-earth and honest when you ask her a question.  She asked if I had decided what to do about the MRI.  I told her that I had declined it for now because no one would really give me a clear indication on what the risks were.  She said there were really none after the first trimester, but that if the vitamins were working, she was fine with me waiting.  She just said it as bluntly as possible that "those radiologists are just hyperactive about working on pregnant women" and "I really don't think you have a tumor, they're just trying to cover their woo-hoos."  She was so funny.  I think I was laughing the whole time I was talking to her.  On a bad note, my weight gain finally caught up to me.  I gained five pounds the past month!  But I'm only up to 10 lbs total which I don't think is horrible.
On a side note, I guess I'm not sure which is getting bigger..my boobs or my stomach because Nixon has started asking, "Is the baby on top or on the bottom?" when he wants to kiss and hug the baby!

personally, I think a woman always looks her best when she is pregnant and I think you are beautiful, eventually Lilly will be all over in there so just tell Nixon that she's here, she's there, she's everywhere....lol
