How many weeks? I am 24.5 weeks! Only 15 weeks to go!
I can’t believe I’ve been pregnant now for 6 months!! All of a sudden it feels like its gone by fast. I’ve had 6 full months of an uneventful “normal” pregnancy and I couldn’t be more thankful for that! By NO means do I want to have a 24 weeker, but it is nice to know that I’ve passed my first goal. Now, I’m hoping and praying for many more uneventful weeks of pregnancy. The next goal is 28 weeks, then 30, then 32, and so on to full term!
How am I feeling? I got a HORRIBLE cold this week. Are common colds worse when you’re pregnant?? It sure feels like it. This is one of the worst colds I think I’ve ever had.
Aside from the cold, I’ve been feeling pretty darn good! My back has been hurting some in the evenings. It concerns me a little – I know that lower back pain can be a sign of preterm labor, but it can also be a very normal pregnancy side effect.
I’m also enjoying all of Taylor’s kicks and punches. She’s moving all the time! I like to stare at my belly and watch it move.
Doctor’s Appointment? Not this week.
Weight Gain? 12 pounds.
Baby Preparation? Josh has been reading Taylor ‘Good Night Moon’ every night at bedtime. My hope is that she will sense our routine and recognize her Daddy’s voice when he reads it to her after she’s born. It’s so cute when he tucks us both into bed each night. Taylor and I love that :)
Thank you for all the positive and encouraging comments to my bedroom dilemma post. It helps to know that we aren’t alone. I guess we’ll just enjoy our sleep while we can!
