28 Dec The Heat!
We are currently going through a heat wave and it is brutal! I cannot seem to regulate my body temperature. I’m too hot and when I attempt to cool down by getting into the pool I get too cold. It is incredibly frustrating. At times I feel like the combination of my son and the heat is cooking me alive. Need some relief!
He is becoming more and more active. I can definitely tell the difference between rolling, punching and kicking. I can also feel his hiccups. It is just the cutest thing. The first time it happened I was so touched I nearly cried. I always wondered how people could feel hiccups but now I know that when it happens, you will know exactly what it is. He seems to get them quite often, poor thing.
Pregnancy has claimed my belly button. It is out and shows no signs of slowing down. My husband laughs every time he sees it. I don’t mind it at all as long as it goes back to the way it was when all of this is done. I must admit that it is a bit strange to have it sticking out and showing through my clothes. I feel like people are staring but whatever. It’s part of the package.
Pregnancy has also claimed my nose. Now this I am unimpressed with. Why is this even a thing?? I mean really, on top of everything my nose has to blow up as well? Can it please please please go back to the way it was after he arrives! I’ll even let go of my belly button if such a compromise exists.
Belly is getting bigger and so is my boy. I’m so anxious about premature labour that I high five myself every time we mark off another week. I view every extra day in the womb as well as every kilogram gained (by him) as a victory. We won’t talk about every kilogram I’ve gained. There is no victory there I am afraid.
We are getting closer and closer to meeting him and the excitement just grows and grows! Still loving the experience even with all my aches and pains. Onto the last stretch!
