This week was long. Very long!
This week has been all of the normal stuff sore back, sore stomach, and headaches. The other thing I have noticed is my belly has started to feel heavy. Especially after I eat. It can be very uncomfortable but it’s just nice knowing I’m helping baby grow. Cool thing I’ve noticed is when I lay on either side I feel the baby drop to that side. It’s weird being able to feel a very full side and an empty side. I’m interested in how it’ll feel when baby stops having so much room.
This week besides wanting salty foods I’ve also enjoyed a lot of smarties. The biggest craving was for lasagna. I have a sweet husband, while I napped he went to the store and picked me up two personal sized lasagnas. I proceeded to eat both within 2 hours of each other.
This week baby and I took an easy flight home to family for the holidays. Daddy and Marco the dog will follow later. By the time my 4 hour flight and 3 hour drive were done I was very sore and tired. I think I’ve hit a point when traveling for long periods of time are hard. Good thing this is our last long trip of the pregnancy. All we have left is the travel back to San Diego.
This week I also met with my high risk OB and I’m officially transferred over to her. We saw the baby and all looks great. I have a heart condition so we checked baby and all looks good for baby’s heart.
My husband and I are extra excited because next week (on my 22nd birthday) we are officially finding out the sex of the baby! I’m getting impatient.
