To me that is a huge milestone in pregnancy. Especially seeing as I never make it to the 40′s ;-) – so when I think about the time frame left before baby… its around 8 weeks or less. So exciting. Although some feelings of anxiety do come up… with the thought of having to care to 4 boys… I know it will be a lot.
This week has been ok.
My emotions are a mess….
I really believe I have a bit of pregnancy depression issues kicking in… which is not uncommon for this time in pregnancy. When you dont feel well physically it only adds to that. One thing I am learning is that it is ok to seek help… and I am thankful for those helping me through these harder weeks.
I go tomorrow to the OB for a heart beat check. 2 weeks after that another ultrasound to check on the baby’s cord, heart and kidneys. So far all of the issues that could come up with a 2 vessel cord baby, have not. Baby looks great.
I also have maternity portraits tomorrow ;-) – a friend of mine is doing them… Im hoping for sunshine, but maybe not the heat? Wishful thinking. I look forward to having her do them and hoping I can pull off something to wear.
In other news…
Contractions are still happening on a regular basis.
Some nights 2-3 hrs worth, 5-8 minutes apart. So far no change in my cervix… so its ok. Its just really tiring to sit through or especially sleep through.
Im also experiencing restless legs? Not sure if that is the right term… but when I sit, I feel like my legs are restless… Sitting in church can get really uncomfortable, since I have to sit still so long. Its a weird feeling… but not something I really have to deal with much, since most days… I DONT SIT :) – at least not long enough to notice anything.
Thats all the updating I can think of :)
