Glad This Week Is Over!

Adding insult to injury, I ended up falling this afternoon. What a horrible end to a not so good week! I was on my way to the post office and lost my footing on the sidewalk outside our condo. Fortunately I managed to land on my hands and knees as opposed to my stomach. After I got up I ran back inside and just started crying. I know it typically takes a much harder fall to do any damage to a growing baby, but I couldn't help but think of the worst.

When I got inside I immediately went to lay down on my left side to see if I could feel him move. After about ten minutes I still hadn't felt him so Ant got me some Sprite to see if the sugar would do anything. A couple minutes later I felt little man rolling around in there, so off I went to the post office. On the way I needed gas so I also got a Twix bar at the AM/PM to ensure maximum movement :).

I think the Twix really did it because after I got home he was going non stop for about a half hour, what a relief! And now here is my 24 week picture.

24 weeks 6 days

And here I was back in June wearing the same outfit.

15 weeks 6 days

I'd say there's a pretty big difference! For dinner tonight Ant and I went to Japan 77, a local hibachi restaurant. Back in my hometown of Wheaton there is a restaurant called Domo 77, which is owned by the same person. I have been to Domo 77 more times than I can count. We went there for so many birthdays and special occasions growing up, it is one of my favorites!

Japan 77 is pretty close to our place, but I had never been there before. The menu was exactly the same as Domo 77, so I was right at home! After we sat down I ordered my go-to hibachi drink, a Shirley Temple!

For my entree I went with your basic steak and Ant ordered a lobster tail and calamari, his plate was huge!

All in all we had a nice dinner. If you live around Chicago keep an eye out on Groupon for a Japan 77 or Domo 77 deal, definitely worth it!


  1. When baby's born, he's going to have hankering for Sprite and Twix. :D Glad you're okay!

  2. Haha, I don't know if I'll be able to handle a sugar-crazed 2 year old! :)

  3. Hey there girl... just wanted to stop by and say I hope the bedrest stuff is going well. Been thinking about ya! The baby bump is looking cute as well :)
