And the hand saga comes to an end.

Yesterday I saw the hand doctor for what turned out to be the final time. I was a bit nervous because there is a bit of a bump under my scar (nothing really noticable or big) and I was worried he would want to open it up (and I was planning to tell him no.) To my surprise, he thought it looked excellent, apparently it's just a thick scar. It's only about a quarter of an inch long, so I'm not too worried about it. Glad it's finally over and I don't have to go back, I have enough medical appointments to juggle without the stupid hand stuff on top of it.

This baby has been moving like crazy all day. It won't be long before Joe (and Luke) are feeling him too. It still blows my mind that I never felt Olivia move like this even though I was several weeks later. Hopefully this is a good sign that he is growing accordingly.  We are not even a tiny bit closer on names. I am over even thinking about it for awhile.  I can't even come up with a name that I like, much less a name that I like that Joe also likes. (Luckily no worries about Snooki's name choice. Lorenzo is actually not a bad name considering his mom is "snooki", but not for me.)

I suddenly have no more pictures of Luke to post because Luke wants to see my camera whenever he gets a glimpse of it and then stops whatever cute thing he was doing, and throws a fit because he wants to see the camera.

Speaking of Luke, he is having a tough time lately. Sleeping like crap (so I guess I could say I'm having a tough time as well), but that's not especially new, but he's not so keen on this mommy spending 2 days a week in school thing either. You'd think he'd be used to it since I was volunteering and going to school from December on. Today I left him with my mom while I was in school and she said he cried off and on all day, and he has been pretty emotional most of the night as well. Luckily next week I only have school one day, and it's when Joe is already off, so hopefully that will help. And after that, only 3 weeks left of school. Then I am DONE with my prereqs with the exception of college algebra, which I've already taken and earned an A, but it was more than 5 years ago. I am hoping to pass the test to test out of it (the score required seems fairly low). If I can't do that, I guess I will try to take it online over the fall, somewhere, someway. Fingers crossed that I can just pass it and be done. Then I will have a year off, with Luke and the baby, while I wait to get into the ultrasound program. It's possible that the waiting list is now 2 years, which would be okay with me too.

Anyway, I really need to get to bed while I can.

Hard to believe that you are almost done with your pre-reqs! Glad that you are feeling baby wiggle, and glad that your hand is all fixed up. Hope you have a little time to give Luke some TLC and take time for yourself!
