Total Weight Gain: +21.5 lbs
Continuing symptoms: slight nose congestion, back ache if I stand too long, acid reflux, aches, pains, and discomforts (especially while sleeping)
New symptoms this week: Braxton hicks - I thought I had one at 18 weeks, but haven't had any since then so I'm not sure. But this week I definitely had a couple. Insomnia...
Maternity Clothes: A few of the more "form fitting" shirts feel like they could get too short pretty soon here!
Sleep: While I generally feel more comfortable while sleeping thanks to my body pillow (not completely ache free, but better), I've started to need to get up once a night to pee. And after I pee....I can't fall back asleep. I've been up for at least two hours per night with insomnia for the past few nights. Any tips on how to help this?!
What I'm Eating: I was quite hungry this week. Hence the weight gain?!
Cravings: Greek yogurt
Movement: Lots of sweet movement. I also noticed hiccups for the first time last night!! My friend who is also pregnant said she has been noticing hiccups for awhile, but I hadn't. I wasn't sure if I just didn't notice or know what to look for, but last night I just knew it was hiccups. :) (And based on where the hiccups were, I think he is breech right now).
Special pregnancy moments: Had our first pediatrician "interview" and it felt like such a milestone and reminder that we are going to be parents, and have a child who will need to visit a pediatrician.
Saw lots of family last weekend and my mom, dad, brother, and grandma got to feel baby boy move :)
