There has definitely been a shift the last couple of days in how I feel and how the pregnancy is progressing. With the third trimester hovering just around the corner, I’ve noticed a lot more aches and pains. The leg cramps are more intense. The carpal tunnel is more severe. But the aches have gotten to me much more than they have been.
The muscle and joint pains have affected me much differently than before. My regular evening walk with Duchess leaves me feeling like I’ve run the Nike Marathon (with no Tiffany necklace to show for it!!!! Booo!) And that dull ache leaves me much more exhausted.
Thankfully my pregnancy pillow helps me sleep at night (thanks husband!!)
I try to stay hydrated, take in all the good nutrients I need, and raise my feet as much as possible….oh, and I’ve started sleeping with wrist braces to help with the carpal tunnel.
I hope I survive the conference this week in San Francisco. On my feet all day? Ouch!
Oh – but on the baby front, she’s kicking a lot more and sometimes I see a lopsided-ness to my belly which makes me think that she’s pushing against me. Amazing!
15 more weeks to go! Can you believe it?!?
