24 weeks! Only four months left to go—less if you’re going by calendar months and not pregnancy months. Pretty crazy.
I have plenty of things I want to talk about on here, other than weekly pregnancy updates, but these weekly posts seem to be all I have time or mental energy for. So many thoughts are racing through my head right now, though—about family and impending parenthood and a billion other things—so I’ll have to try and sit down sometime and get a few of them on “paper” soon.
How I’m feeling: Physically pretty good, but I’m really, really tired. My round ligament pain hasn’t shown its face in a while, so last week I made it to three yoga classes—two regular, low-intensity and one prenatal! It felt incredible. I didn’t realize just how much I missed it until I went back.
The only other new symptom is Extreme Fullness. Like I’m carrying around a cement block and a baby in my stomach.
Mentally, I’m not feeling so hot. I’ve been pretty low these last few days, but there’s a lot going on other than the pregnancy—job drama, family illness, settling into new house etc.—so I don’t think hormones are totally to blame for that. The no-sleep trend continues, which I’m sure does not help matters.
