I figured I needed to record this stuff to compare to future pregnancy's, and to remember. I remember before I got pregnant hearing things from women who were pregnant, but I never really understood/expected what they were saying to me.
I never expected:
1. Stretch Marks. My mom told me that she never got a single stretch mark, and I guess I figured I would be that lucky as well. I did all the precautionary steps, and I did really good up until my 5/6 month of pregnancy. Right when I had a huge growth spurt I started to wake up with a new one everyday. Luckily they fade right?
2. Trouble eating. I couldn't wait for the day to be pregnant and eat anything and everything, but honestly I have been the opposite. Since day one it has been a huge challenge to find things that I want to eat. I think my first trimester forced that into me. I never know what I want to eat, and I have become ultra picky. Poor Chris.
3. Nausea. I had awful awful nausea the first trimester, and even well into the second. It seemed to fade away but lately it has been creeping back. If I don't eat something every few hours, I get pretty sick. I am just so grateful it's not as bad as it was.
4. Attachment. I never thought I could love or be so attached to someone I have never seen, heard, or felt before. I have absolutely loved feeling this baby girl move inside of me. Although sometimes her moments become uncomfortable, I love it just the same. I am really going to miss knowing that she is safe and happy inside of me.
We had our weekly appointment yesterday, and we had a lot of our questions and concerns answered. I was checked for dilation and I am completely shut, and not going anywhere anytime soon. You never know though right? Preslie hasn't dropped yet, and is still swimming around (or trying to). She is lopsided right now, and is having a great time switching from my right to my left side. We are all hopeful that she won't be too much longer. We are happy that everything looks good and is right on schedule.
