I've got so much energy back it's hard to process how freaking tired I was the first few months. My gawd. I now come home from a regular day at work and still have enough energy to cook, tidy the kitchen, put away the food and even bathe. Wow.
I'm having some mild difficulty sleeping at night - the weight of the tummy is pulling at me and I'm very conscious to lay on my left side whenever I can. I need a thin pillow to put under my tummy or I find my back hurts to the point of waking me up.
|I find the bellybelt is a wonderful little tool for me. I can still wear my favorite jeans without them falling down. A long shirt is in order, and sometimes using a belly band is best if wearing a snug top, but otherwise, I love this product!|
Looks like I'll be searching out some nice flowing empire waist tops to go with the jeans.
I've had some moderate heartburn at night. This is a disgusting, foul experience that has no business being on my list of pregnancy experiences. I can usually keep things at bay by taking a healthy tablespoon of honey at night with a half glass of milk. All natural and seems to work well. It starts about 10 o'clock (about now) and will keep me awake all night if left untreated.
Baby boy is kicking as we speak. Little bumps and thumps as he stretches out his legs. Hard to believe we are in our 20th week and halfway there! Wow.
I miss David more than anything in the world right now. It's difficult to be here alone even though the pregnancy is not really that exciting. I know we'll be able to feel the baby kick on the outside soon and I want him to be here to experience that with me. He's coming home for the 20 week ultrasound (February 21 - put off so it will co-incide with his days off), and I hope at that point he might have some more solid evidence that his son is anxious to meet his daddy.
We've gotten our trisomy results back at 1:2,900 and downs at 1:360. Those numbers might seem high for a younger woman, but there was actually a note on the results that said these numbers were exceptionally good for my age. Yeah.... I'm still a good breeder.
Oh and one last note... we have our babymoon all planned out! Ten days in Mexico, on the East Coast in a beautiful penthouse condo with four bedrooms, private deck with jacuzzi and king sized beds. Can. Not. Wait.
