Ok, so I am a day early, but I am so pleased to be halfway :)
Feeling so many pop pop pop kicks and movement these last few days in particular, so good.
Big U/S on Monday , 16th. Excited and anxious a bit I guess, my forth babe but I opted out of scans with the others, so I am first timer with them really.
Had a terribly weird dream that my baby kicked a foot right through my belly, and it was tiny and sticking out and I went to the hospital. I remember stroking this tiny foot and wondering why it wouldn't move. Scary and strange dream. I woke up to kicks though and felt a whole lot better.
Ate out last Friday and was gluten contaminated, remembered why we hardly eat out any more out when I had a headache for four days, puffy face, flu ache body and brain fog like I was drugged. have been super careful with my diet this week and stepped up the omega 3 intake to try and combat the inflammation caused by the gluten. Feeling way better today. But tired-ish still.
Finally handed in my notice at work (i home educate so only work on a Saturday at my local delicatessen). It was a 8.5 hour on my feet-athon and have been having major Braxton Hicks when at work. Just not a good time really. So exhausting. Only a couple more Saturdays to work and then I can leave without feeling I am leaving them in the lurch.
Bought myself two new preg. dvd's, a yoga one and a more general exercise one. Plus am doing these light weights every couple of days. I have been remembering how wiped out I was after my dd's birth, like utterly on the floor, and too exhausted even to go gah-gah over her. I could have stayed in bed a week (and I had a nice quiet home birth).
So want to be fitter this time around and feel so good about doing these dvd's. Plus my usual hour or so of walking with the dog daily.
Really don't look all that pregnant yet either, just rounder around the middle. But can feel that melon uterus when I lie down pop up to my navel :)
Have a beef and veggie stew slow cooking and want to go and make some coconut flour muffins so best go :)
Lets all leave a lovely detailed 20-week-how-you-are-doing post for everyone to share and mark as their halfway point
