Feeling: This week was a little rougher. Braxton hicks have started and some really hurt. He is kicking me so hard some days and nights that it’s difficult to talk or breathe. He even woke me up one night, and I’m pretty sure he flipped his body kicking and punching the whole way. I felt so sore the next morning- hooray for acetaminophen to help out! I’m also seeing some more fatigue creep in. I’m happy to go to bed early and wake up late these days. I’ve heard many people say that the 3rd trimester exists so labor sounds amazing and you actually want to go through with it. I am seeing the wisdom in this sage advice.
Body Changes: Waddling, it is a thing! I think I’m walking funny and looking funny and balance is getting harder. I’m also needing help just getting up in multiple situations. Hello humility, my new friend.
Baby Updates: I had a doctor appointment this week where she confirmed, he’s head down and definitely flipped. I can feel kicking in my ribs, and I’m feeling him awake at night more often. He also seems to wake up at certain times of day. I’ve read they start to get on a schedule in the womb, and I’m seeing him active about the same time each morning, afternoon, and night. I am also seeing my stomach start to do the wave, I think he’s getting pretty cramped in there there days.
