The weeks are ticking by!
I’m definitely getting bigger but I think it’s slowed down. I felt like I popped pretty early (typical with subsequent pregnancies) and now I’m slowing down and evening out. I think I’m carrying lower this time, too, as compared to last time:
I tend to feel most movement pretty low down. She gets especially active when I drink water. With Leo I never really felt like he pushed on my bladder that much but I definitely do way more with baby girl. So far it hasn’t interfered with running – most of the time I know I don’t really have to go – but we’ll see as she gets bigger.
Dave finally got to feel her move last night. She tends to stop moving as soon as he tries to feel, so I was really glad she finally gave him a kick.
I haven’t had any huge food cravings or aversions lately. Well, over a week ago I made a lemon/olive oil pasta sauce that I could not eat. The smell alone had me feeling gross but I one bite and I knew there was no way I was eating that dinner. Salads still don’t sound good but I could choke one down if I had to. Love fruit and cheese and crackers. Also marshmallows and cookies.
I feel like the weeks are passing slowly, but I’m terrible at being patient and waiting. I also know November will be here before we know it. Can’t wait to meet this little girl!
