An Update on Pregnancy
Next Saturday, I’ll start my third trimester. Time is flying!
My taste buds are crazy. Most food tastes like salt. Even pudding cups are losing their luster.
I took a break from strawberries, but they’re making a strong come back.
I had my first dream about Jude’s birth. I suspect this was in response to a rather scarring night in our child birth prep class during which we talked about epidurals.
In total, I’ve gained about 19lbs.
I cry more than usual and feel that I may have regressed back into adolescence.
Doc says Jude’s measuring in the 90th percentile right now. We think he may be a “husky” baby.
My current sleep pattern includes a 1-2 hour break each night. I recently discovered that Andy Griffith comes on at 3:30am…along with a number of other unbelievably trashy programs.
I've been feeling a rythmic beat off and on lately. I wondered if I was feeling his heartbeat...which seemed strange. Today I read that I may be able to feel his hiccups now. That's cute. I am feeling baby hiccups.
A blood hound has nothing to me on sense of smell. Poor David often has to remove objects and food items from the room.
Speaking of hubs, he’s holding up wonderfully. His man symptoms are completely under control at this point. He’s a steady rock in the world of a pregnant woman.
I really can hardly wait to meet the little guy.
