I am a wee bit behind on my pregnancy updates.
Baby is 20 weeks old today and the size of a mango.
Here is last weeks pic of 19 weeks!
. . . and for the sake of comparison . . .
I am definitely feeling better. As long as I eat, I don’t feel sick! Of course, I am hungry allll the time.
My exhaustion level was pretty high due to my anemia, but my iron pills have begun to help.
I get pretty bad backaches while pregnant (a precursor to the awful back labor I always experience) and I have already been having uncomfortable Braxton Hicks, but other than that I’m great. HA!
Best of all, I have been feeling baby move a bit. This is both comforting and anxiety-enducing. Comforting because each movement reassures me that the child is well. Anxiety-enducing because I get very worried when I don’t feel movement.
I know this is the repercussion of my two miscarriages and I am trying not to worry too much.
My next appointment is next week and then in about 9 days we will find out the gender. I can’t wait!
Can’t believe I am half way there! So much to do and so much joy to be had.
