I'm trying to do these updates occasionally, so that for future pregnancies, Lord willing, I can look back and compare. :) Feel free to skip because it might get boring.
Half way through the 40 weeks! Yay!! Our ultrasound is scheduled for Tuesday, July 3rd. I'm not finding out the gender, but Geoff might if he can. I'm hoping to have the ultrasound tech just write it down & give it to him. I'm praying that our baby is just like us & very stubborn. :) The list of symptoms is growing. I feel like I've experienced everything listed in my books.
Week 19 - Acid reflux kept me up 1/2 the night. Ended up sleeping in the recliner. Also, I think the baby was on a nerve, because I had achiness in my joints on my left side that night too.
*Our baby either loves or hates music. When we have been at different graduation parties or weddings, every time music was playing, the bean was going to town with movements. Not sure if he wanted me to stop it or keep it going. :)
*Leg cramps in my calves have come and gone. Decided to do a little stretching before going to bed and it has helped.
*My belly is not huge. Still can't tell I'm preggo because my shirt covers it. Have started wearing maternity bottoms which have been comfortable. The belly extends from my belly button down, so it is low.
*The baby's heartbeat is steady at 160, so people have advised me that we're having a girl. :)
Week 18 - Forgetfulness has been terrible. I cannot remember people's names.
*I find it so hard to make a decision over anything - like what to make for dinner, what should I wear, how should I do the nursery, etc. I have trouble remembering people's names, and have been writing down everything at work to make sure I don't forget to do something.
*My energy level is high, and I have been cleaning and decluttering our house. I still need to tackle some more, but it feels good to stay up past 9 pm.
*Hormones are raging. I've bawled as I watch different sad tv shows. I tear up at pictures of babies I don't even know. I get extremely cranky at 10:31 pm. At 10:29, I'm fine, but after 10:30, I know I must go to bed or I will regret it.
