This week has been a little difficult emotionally on me. My Labor Day weekend was not super relaxing and it left me feeling a little stressed. I got sick twice on Tuesday...once at work (ick)...and have just been feeling a little off. I haven't been able to feel the baby move yet, and I'm really down about it. I know everyone is different and it's not to the point where it's abnormal I haven't felt anything yet...but it's hard. I feel like we're missing out on a huge milestone and building a stronger connection to our sweet girl.
And the worst part, I've convinced myself it is because I was not the skinniest girl on the planet before I conceived. So now I picture my sweet, innocent baby surrounded by all my fat, trying so hard to move around, but suffocating in the process. I know. I'm being dramatic. And Matt may've laughed when I told him this. So clearly I'm ridiculous. But I can't help feeling like it's somehow my fault.
Anyhow, let's move onto happier thoughts, shall we?
How Far Along: 21 weeks!
Maternity Clothes: Boy do I need some more shirts. I'm having trouble fitting into my T-shirts. Not cool.
Sleep: I have now developed intense hip pain during the night. I feel like an elderly person. I sleep with a pillow between my knees...but I think by the end of the night it has flattened so much it begins to bother my hips. And it's the kind of pain that wakes you up. Ouch! Suggestions?
Food: Clearly food it not an issue for me.
Best Moment of the Week: Hm. Is it sad that I can't think of anything?
What I'm Looking Forward to: This month is insane. With Junior League starting up, buying a house, our anniversary, and more doctor's appointments coming up....I'm really just looking forward to October.
