AFM: Nothing new here. 23 weeks, feeling regular kicks and loving it. I've felt comfortable to purchase all my newborn diapers and babywearing paraphernalia. I have an ultrasound on Thursday with my specialist, just a regular check up for me due to high blood pressure issues. I'm on meds and it's under control, but I have to see a specialist every month to monitor things.
Ugh. I hate that term. I hate that miscarriages are "technically" abortions.

So glad you're feeling good movement So reassuring, eh?

End rant.
Yup, I'm with ya there. Hate that.
