Symptoms: Heartburn has stopped (providing I remember the twice-daily pill), sinus weirdness continues to wake me up, obsessive registering drama, moaning and groaning when I get up/roll over, difficulty bending down to pick things up.
Body changes: Belly is ginormous, full stop. And I fear I may have started waddling when I’m alone — although not yet confirmed.
High point: Feeling Little Baby’s first really strong POW kicks (a.k.a. golf balls banging around inside of me). I’ve felt them every day since Friday, and it’s awesome. I always put my hands on my belly and try to feel them from the outside, but I’m not sure if I can yet.
Low point: I was really anxious after our 20-week ultrasound, because Little Baby was not cooperating and the tech said we needed to come back since she couldn’t get all of the measurements she needed. But I found comfort in the stories of other women who’d experienced the same thing, and I’ve been feeling better since then.
Paranoid moment of the week: See “Low point.”
