Sprout's First Appearance

Today we had our first prenatal visit with Dr. Meek. We were able to get an ultrasound to see little Sprout for the first time. Such a little butter bean! She estimated my due date at February 24. It really feels like it's real now! Initally I was so shocked that it didn't seem like reality at all! But, I'm going to be a mom of two and Rowan is going to be a big sister!

I'm feeling relatively well--just a bit tired and quite hungry. Unfortunately I've also broken out in a rash all over my body. I am itching like crazy and can't sleep because I just can't stop scratching. My throat and neck are swelling up. So, I'm on a very large dose of steroids in hopes of clearing this up. I'm quite miserable and it's hard to keep up with Rowan on such little sleep.

We've spent a lot of time playing in the sprinkler, going on walks and playing inside. I'm guessing the sun and pool chemicals aren't good for this rash, so I'm trying to avoid both, much to Rowan's chagrin. We're doing lots of reading and climbing. I can see how easy it would be to just turn on the TV, but she hasn't watched it yet, so I'm hoping to keep it off for a while longer.

Tomorrow we'll have library time and a playdate with some friends from my moms group at church. It's a pool party, but I'll be avoiding the pool.
