I do feel like this is the only recurring post I remember to write. But to be fair, it is on my mind a lot. Also, thanks to Rossy for the inspiration for the title!
How I’m Doing
I find myself staring a lot more at my tummy. Things are definitely happening. I feel similar to my last update post. Not sleeping too great, and being a little off balance. I am getting hungrier randomly though. In the middle of the night, I suddenly wake up really hungry. So now I keep snacks by the bed.
I’ve gone to a few pregnancy classes, as I don’t tend to motivate myself to do any exercise. The yoga classes have been really nice. I have followed some Youtube videos, but it’s nice to do it with the instructor in the room. I have slept better on the nights following the yoga class. I’ve also tried a pregnancy swimming class, which I loved. Being weightless and floating in water is a nice feeling. Also, the low impact aerobics was a lot of fun. I can jump and move around a lot easier in water than on land. That being said, coming out of the water and back onto land was kind of a disappointment.
How Baby Is Doing
Baby has now grown to the size of a mango. He or she is also starting to get some fat, so they’re getting bigger. I should be able to feel them more and more, and that has me the most excited. The past two weeks, I’ve felt a lot more ‘flutterings’. It’ll be interesting to compare these movements to bigger moves and kicks down the line.
That’s all for this update! I’m really excited for the 20 week ultrasound next week. Hopefully we’ll be able to find out the gender!
