I can't believe I am 29 weeks. I have a feeling the next couple of months are going to fly by. Summer in Saskatchewan usually goes by quickly, and I doubt this year will be any exception. We have been enjoying the warmer weather this week, but I am looking forward to the more seasonal forecast for the coming week. I think I enjoy temperatures between about 18-25C the best.
I think I have reached the point in my pregnancy where I am starting to get uncomfortable. I am finding that I am not sleeping as well at night. I was quite comfortable until very recently sleeping on my back, but now when I sleep on my back, my back and my stomach hurt. If I sleep on my side my shoulder hurts, and my back hurts, but not as bad as if I sleep on my back. So far, the back pain doesn't seem to bother me too much during the day, unless I am on my feet a lot. I have noticed recently that my feet ache a lot. I haven't had much swelling yet but I find, especially when I am barefoot in the house even for a fairly short period of time, my feet ache like I have been standing on them for hours. I think it is a combination of the looseness in my ligaments caused by the hormones, and carrying around extra weight, and a different center of gravity/balance probably contributes as well. I am definitely starting to feel more tired. I seem to tire out more quickly, but I am also noticing that sometimes my belly feels heavy to carry around. And it's not even THAT big yet.
This past week I am pretty sure I felt that the baby had hiccups a couple of times! At first I just thought I was being kicked again and again and again, very gently. But then I realized that it was way too rhythmic to be kicks/movements. It almost felt like a little heartbeat, but too slow for me or the baby. The other morning, Jay even got to feel it a little bit. So fun :)
I am not complaining, I am still kind of in awe of what is going on my body right now. Amazed to be growing a little person who is half Angie and half Jason. So curious about what she will look like, and what her personality will be like. Eleven more weeks to go!
