nauseous - Again, again. This first trimester symptom has also decided to resurrect itself, not in the same way though. It's a combination of stuffing my stomach too full (since it's jammed up towards my neck at this point) and my vicious heartburn. I try to keep myself full by spacing out smaller meals, but it gets hard when I'm working all day.
vagina pains - This is a brand new feeling. I layed on the couch last week and about fell to the floor in pain as my tiny son punched me right in my Queen Victoria. This is not a precious moment by any means. I could feel him so low and the pains were so sharp I was actually frightened that by morning I would have a tiny arm hanging out of me. I know, I know that I'm crazy but it was a really uncomfortable feeling.
presents - Our neighborhood is tiny so it always blows my mind that the UPS guy is in our neighborhood everyday. I always wonder who is getting all of those packages?! Well lately it's been
emotional - I am a roller coaster of emotions. There is no other way to describe my moods lately. I can be in the loveliest of moods and then be balling moments later when I see a recap of all the acts of good sportsmanship at the Olympics. DJ thinks it's
stretch marks - NONE! Yessssssssss!
anxious - I'm anxious to meet my son...for him to get here...for my next doctors appointment...for our baby shower...for the finishing touches on the nursery to be finished...for the pain of labor. I'm anxious at all times.
contractions - The braxton hicks kind of course. They seem to be happening mostly at night. It's tough to walk up right and to move around when my stomach feels so tight but they aren't painful.
back pain - I thought I had a pretty strong core until I started carrying around 18lbs in my stomach. That put things into perspective. Ok, I haven't gained all 18lbs in my stomach, at least 10 of it is in my face.
It's so fun to be pregnant.
