Nikirj-I had to remind myself of that. I'll talk to my mw this week- I might have a few an hour, or some I'm able to time for awhile before they stop-usually within an hour. Each day is different. Some are much stronger than others-mostly the ones that I can time, or if I've been on my feet a few hours. Those I actually visualize and breathe through and tell my uterus to cut it out, lol.
Harpersmion-yep, that's what I do if I can-drink a bunch of water and lay down.
Sila-I bought new underwear last week-oh so nice what a size up makes :) I'd like to find a few light sports bras-I labored in one last time and they were nice to wear around the house/easy to nurse in. At least for me for the first month or two.
Kicks!!! We felt real kicks yesterday. Low, way on the side and the top of my uterus. if I press my hand on my uterus when she moves, you can feel it :) I felt her this morning too rolling around. It makes me feel so much better. We turn 18wks this week.
Dh asked what we needed for the baby and said we might as well start buying stuff. Yikes! I mean, I've been looking at sales to see how often they are and compiling my small list, but to start really getting things, it's making this so very real and go quicker.
On the grrrr side, I must have eaten something I'm allergic too a few days ago by accident :( I've had hive break outs that are driving me crazy. It's so hard not to itch them and make it worse. Even my lips itch, grrr. I'm no longer buying food where it doesn't state the allergens/cross contaminants. Ds ate some too and now has cold symptoms-even more grrr.
