I hope you ladies are feeling better! How miserable to be sick and pregnant. The weather is finally giving me a break and I’ve been out walking the last two days. I’m hoping that my weight gain will slow down now that I hopefully can get back to my long daily walks. I’m kinda bummed to already be up 25lbs when I’m only 27weeks with my first baby…I’m mostly eating healthy food…just too much of it. It’s all just so good! It doesn’t help that my mom, husband, and mother-in-law are always making/buying me special treats for the baby
My baby has been head butting me a lot right above my belly button. When I feel it with my hand, it feels like a baseball-sized head keeps popping out. Baby has also been stretching a lot—which feels pretty strange.
I’ve been back to sleeping on the couch the last few nights. It just feels really good to have something behind my back now that I’m sleeping on my side. I end up with back pain when I stay in bed. I’ve also been having some killer leg-cramps. My mom always said that leg cramps were the closest pain she could compare to contractions. Do you other experienced mamas agree? That kinda scares me because these cramps completely take my breath away, I can’t imagine trying to breathe slowly and stay relaxed if this is how labor feels, but is my whole stomach and not just my leg!
