This morning, a couple of my girlfriends at work were saying that they feel like my pregnancy is going by really quickly. I had to laugh because it does not feel that way to me. I guess that’s partially because I’ve spent a lot of this year being pregnant and partially because I didn’t tell work people until I was about 16 weeks along this time.
Although I feel like I’ve been pregnant for a long time, I do feel like this fall is flying by. This seems to be a particularly busy time of year and my head is spinning trying to keep up.
The report from my anatomy scan finally showed up on my online health record this week. I never heard from my OB, so I assumed all was well, but it was still good to see it. Everything was normal and Baby Bo was measuring pretty close to where he should be (about four days bigger). It was such a relief to see.
Symptoms: After a long day of work or a particularly busy day on my feet, I’m starting to notice the heaviness in my lower abdomen. I’m already finding that it’s hard to get comfortable and that sitting for a long time (even through a meal) is hard. I know I still have a long way to go so I better get used to the discomfort. And I’m still tired. So friggin’ tired.
Clothing: No new shopping this week but I’m definitely enjoying the maternity clothes. There is nothing better than pulling my pants up to my boobs.
Fetal movement: Bo is on the go a lot more these days. The other night as I was reading in bed (anyone read the Divergent series? Loving it!!) Bo started going crazy with the kicking and flipping. At one point, I actually saw my stomach moving. I love it!
Other: I got my flu shot yesterday. I don’t get it every year, but I know it’s recommended for pregnant women and I got it when I was pregnant with Littleman, so I felt like I should do it. My arm is hurting a bit now and (I know this is unrelated to the shot) I’m feeling a bit off today. My throat is a bit scratchy and feels kind of swollen. And I’m a bit headachy. Ugh. I really don’t have time to get sick!
