Symptoms: Round ligament pain, heartburn (even with my heartburn meds, sadly), leg cramps (sometimes so bad they cause me to have to sleep with them propped up on pillows).
Body changes: This was another week where I feel my stomach got especially big. It’s getting hard to type at keyboards that are level with it, because it juts out so much. Nice and round and rock-hard, though 🙂
High point: Our 3D ultrasound, where we found out we’re having a baby boy! It is so nice to know the sex, and actually get to buy cute gender-specific clothes — not to mention it’s a huge relief to be able to start the nursery. If any of you are contemplating finding out the sex, I highly recommend it.
Low point: As happy as I am to be expecting our baby boy, I did have a moment of disappointment for not having a baby girl like I’d hoped/expected.
Paranoid moment of the week: Watching the Duggar special about their premature baby, and making a hysterical phone call to Darling Husband. Pregnant women should not want that stuff, and yet we must. We can’t not watch it. It’s a lose-lose situation, really.
