tea, ball bouncing, kidney stones and other random things

*I am normally not a big tea fan. However, I bought some red raspberry leaf tea today, loaded it up with some sugar (bad, I know, but I can't stomach it any other way) and I am currently ENJOYING it! Wow!

*To encourage baby boy to move down some, I've been bouncing on my exercise ball frequently. Plus, its just plain fun to bounce up and down on this thing.

*I got out my breast pump today. I realized how much I really don't like that thing, but how useful they really can be. Especially in the early days.

*I have, what appears to be, another kidney stone. I was having some major back pain last week. When I went into the OB, they tested my urine and concluded that it was probably a kidney stone. Last night, and the night before, I was in major pain. Even when the stone isn't trying to move, my back/kidney area is aching. Fun, right?

*Did I tell you all that I measured ahead last week at my appointment? We've decided to go ahead with the ultrasound that the OB recommends. Its scheduled for Wednesday morning. if nothing else, it'll be nice to see baby boy's sweet profile again. :)

*One of my very best friends, Devan, is gearing up to have her baby. She may be in early labor now! If she doesn't have her sweet little girl today or tomorrow, she'll definitely be here on Wednesday! Yay!

And thus concludes today's episode of random facts.

I loved bouncing on my exercise ball at the end of my pregnancy with Miss O., too!

Boo for the kidney stone...I hope it passes soon!

You're getting SO close! :)

When it's time for baby boy to come - I bet you'll have an easy labor!
