Baby must have sensed I was feeling down or something cause she has more then made up for it in kicks in the past two days, which never ceases to make me boil over with gratitude.
I am borrowing an Angel Sounds doppler from Natashia, which she was borrowing from a women in England whom I don’t even know. I will have to give it back soon but to date I have loved having it. I only use it maybe one or twice a week but it can make all the differance on a slow day. Last night she was kicking up a storm as I was folding laundry, so took a break to have a listen to her movements. Three times she kicked the doppler directly 🙂 Evan used to do this all the time. It’s so cool to feel, see and hear the kick all at once. This morning when I woke up at seven am, she was already awake kicking away in my belly, and again the kicks were so strong my belly is jumping now, which I love and feel like I have been waiting for forever. One of my favorite things to do with Evan was lie in bed and watch my belly jump while I was reading.
Pregnancy is the coolest experience and I am so greatful to be experiencing it again. Each kick makes this new bebe more and more real to me.
In other news, it’s raining and storming here today and I swear every bone in my body is aching, as it does on wet days. I have physio tommorow morning, at least I can tell her that with the exercises she has me doing as well as sleeping with the body pillow crotch to ankle each night seem to be helping in that I am not getting worse. I don’t expect to get better, I fully expected to have pelvic pain for the entire third trimester as I did with Evan, but if I can keep my SI joint happy, I can deal with the rest, dull pain is so much better then shooting nerve pain. Right now, it’s managable.
Also-Follow up ultrasound tommorow after physio. 🙂 Let’s hope she opens her legs this time.
