Baby Deux - Week 15
Week 15 has not been my best week...at all.
I feel exhausted. Probably has something to do with the fact that a) I'm waking up a bunch at night for no apparent reason (I'm guessing I'm rolling onto my back and it hurts) and W has been waking up around 6 am (a month ago he would sleep till at least 7).
I also feel huge. My belly has officially "popped." People are commenting on it. I'm wearing maternity clothes. I am so envious of those women who feel feminine and beautiful while they're pregnant!!! I feel like a whale.
And, not only am I feeling some intense round ligament pain (more on that here) I'm also feeling some intense cervical pressure, which is a little alarming, to be quite honest. I don't remember feeling any cervical pressure till within weeks of W being born; how they heck can I be feeling it already? I am temporarily comforting myself by reminding myself that I carried W super high, and it's possible I'm just carrying this little one much lower. But either way I plan on bringing it up at my next appointment which is this Friday!
In more exciting news...I felt the baby move!!! Which is cray-cray because I didn't feel W move until at least 18 weeks! It isn't constant, just random swooshy feelings, but it's definitely baby!
I guess that's all for this week...check out my baby bump!
