(Nov. 26 to Dec. 2)
Symptoms: Shortness of breath/tight throat sort of feelings.
Body changes: People keep telling me I “really” look pregnant. I feel like I have for, like, 14 weeks, so … yeah. Looking really pregnant.
Baby movement: Definitely feel “movement” feelings, but have yet to feel any “kicky-point” feelings.
Cravings: Spinach artichoke cheese dip from M&M Meat Shops. I *may* have insisted we drive there the other evening, bought some, made it, and then eaten it all (with a mini-baguette). But, in my defense, Darling Husband was supposed to share it, and did not. Possibly because he didn’t want to lose a hand.
Aversions: Taco meat. Ew.
High point: Getting to work in my new (PINK!) home office for two long stretches in a single day (a.k.a. the day Darling Husband was off from both jobs), and feeling super-productive. I am more than just a dish-washer and a laundry-doer! I am all professional-ish and stuff! Yeah!
Low point: Some set-backs in the freelance department. Being your own boss is kind of the pits sometimes, because you always feel like OMG-what-if-there-is-not-enough-work?!?! Having a steady paycheque is a distant memory, but I believe it felt very reassuring, if I remember correctly.
How does this week compare to Week 18 during pregnancy #1? I had the same paranoia about not feeling the baby move “enough.” I suspect that doesn’t go away, right?
