Hello all. I honestly don’t even know what my blogging schedule is anymore. My brain has just been taken over by work, home, and of course baby. Anyway, time for another pregnancy update.
How I’m Doing
I am feeling pregnant, as I always am. Except now I’m definitely noticing a heavier weight, especially in the utero area. As well as the growing bump. So I’m mostly feeling off balance. Literally. Getting up used to be straightforward for me, but now it requires more concentration and a little more effort. I’m also finding it a bit more annoying in my job, since I’m often sitting on the floor with the babies. Trying to haul myself up to a standing position is not as easy. It’s an adjustment, but I’m slowly getting used to it.
Also, I’m still having trouble sleeping. I bought a little wedge pillow that I mentioned last time, but I’m planning on getting one of those full body ones. Cause I miss sleeping through the night. Although, sleeping through the night may become something of the past as the pregnancy goes on, and then baby arrives..
How Baby is Doing
Little bub is doing good as far as I know. He/she is now the size of a bell pepper (5 1/2 inches or 14 cm) and is apparently moving around and doing heaps. Including yawning, hiccuping, sucking their thumb…twisting, rolling, and maybe even kicking. Speaking of that last one, I should be able to start feeling all this soon. I think I may have felt baby move for the first time a few days ago. It’s hard to tell though, cause I’m not sure what I’m looking for. Everyone describes it differently, the most common one seems to be “butterflies”, and like little flutterings. After I sneezed a bunch one afternoon, I definitely felt something odd like butterflies in the baby region. But since it was just that one time, I’m still not sure if that was baby. I’m definitely more focused now on what’s going on down there in the bump!
That’s all for this update!
