99 Bottles of.....water?

I guess, for now, I have to sing 99 bottles of water on the wall.
We went to the dr this morning, for our check on Pierce.  He's doing well, moving about like a champ, and does NOT like anything intruding on his space!  She pressed the Doppler on my belly and searched on the right dice.  Searched the left, found it, then he ran away!  She found it again and his heart rate was good and strong between 130-140...because he was so busy trying to run away from her!!
I'm measuring right on schedule!  Yay for no huge belly!
And, my biggest victory, this is the least amount of weight I have gained between appointments!  I had gained a little too much, so I was glad that this time I had only gained 3 pounds.  I can look at pics and tell that that is all in the belly!!
And, I learned that the little mild cramps I've been having are Braxton-Hicks...yay!  Already?  Ugh.  Oh well.  From what I understand everyone has them, it's just a matter of if you actually feel them.  I feel them in my back mostly...not a big fan!  I was told to just relax with my feet up and drink water.  I'm thankful we have a stool at work!
