Things are getting ever more uncomfortable. My hips ache all the time now. Ache, hmm... not a strong enough word. Shooting burst of radiating pain is a better description. Baby must have had a growth spurt over the past two weeks and gotten huge and... hard. It literally feels like I have a solid basketball in my belly, and I can't bend over anymore without a big struggle. The muscles over my belly are stretching and aching as well. And because of the weight in my belly, my back is perma-sore as well.
My stomach is still as touchy as ever. More often than not, after I eat I feel mildly sick to my stomach. It is the rare (HAPPY) occasion when I feel normal after eating.
Along with baby getting bigger, the kicks and movements are much stronger now. Still the most inactive baby so far, but s/he moves enough now that I don't worry anymore.
I have my first appointment with the midwife on Wednesday, and my glucose test. I keep telling myself that I only have about 10 weeks left... sometimes that's encouraging. Sometimes not.
On a brighter note, I am almost finished with my baby boy and baby girl blankets that I have been working on over the past two months! I will post a pic of each when they are finished.
