Here we are at 19 weeks!
Anyway, these last 2 weeks have been flying by. And I am convinced it's because I am not starting off each and every day with throwing up what little amount of something I had in my stomach. Thank you Jesus that that is over. Here's what's been going on:
-My belly is starting to itch. Specifically right after I eat a lot. My neighbor gave me some coconut oil that has been helping a lot. It's kind of addicting.
-My bad acne is making its triumphant return! It sucks. When I asked the doctor if I could use benzoil peroxide, she said "Are you drinking the stuff?" To which I replied, "no." So she said I could use it. It really hasn't been working that well. I discovered Yes To Carrots face wash which is really nice.
-My cousin Candace had her baby! She wasn't due until April 20th but Addison Zenna had other plans. She was born early Easter morning. I will meet her in July for my shower but Baby Rogers will have to wait. We are planning to go to Texas next summer so they will meet then.
-I can't believe that in one week from tomorrow we will be finding out the sex. Well that is, if this baby cooperates. I am hoping he/she does because I am not leaving that ultrasound room until they tell me :)
-I think I might be feeling baby move. It's a weird feeling but it feels like something is swooshing (yes, that's a word) across the inside of my stomach. It's usually at the bottom left. I try to push back but no answer. But then I'll feel it again like 5 minutes later.
-It is officially uncomfortable to sleep on my stomach. This sucks. I am a total stomach sleeper so it's getting harder and harder to fall asleep. I feel the "swooshing" when I try to lay on my stomach.
-When I eat a lot of food my stomach feels like it is going to rip if I breathe too hard, sneeze (which is like every 20 minutes it feels like), yawn, or cough. I told Dan imagine every meal you ate was like Thanksgiving. That's how it feels.
-I'm just going to come right out and say it - my ass is huge. I can't handle it!
We have a very full calendar for May and a little bit of June/July. I will be going to 4 weddings while pregnant. Luckily I can wear the same dress to all. It should be interesting.
I'm also getting excited for an old friend, Rachael, who is about 8 weeks ahead of me in her pregnancy. She is officially in her third trimester! (yay!) I love reading her blog because it makes me get excited about what I have to look forward to. And it reminds me of some things that we need to add to our to-do list :)
