Hello again friends!
Well time seems to be flying by. I'm now 23 weeks, which means i'm almost done my second trimester...crazy I know.
Now i'm not sure exactly what the term "glowing" really means in pregnancy, but if it means happy and overall enjoying pregnancy, then i'm glowing. I don't mean to say that there aren't some tough parts, because there are; shortness of breath, sometimes restless nights, occasional sciatica (holy ouch), mood swings (according to hubby, I'm sure he could start his own blog just on crazy stories about me). Despite that, however, I feel really excited and loving this growing experience, and luckily I truly do feel good most of the time. People were not joking when they said that this trimester would be good, so I tried to make the most of it, and got in spa days, and even went to an Alicia Keys concert. I'm also fortunate as I've been hearing positive things overall too. It makes me all warm and fuzzy when I hear people excited for us, but most of all when I feel my baby move!
That's right...peanut is a kickin'.
I felt what seemed like a pulsation last weekend, march 9th around 3am to be exact, and from then on have been getting that fluttery feeling I've heard about, along with actual kicks! Hubby's able to feel it also...coolest thing ever, hands down!
So I don't know if I'm "glowing" physically, that's opinion I suppose. But I sure feel like I am glowing emotionally, simply based on the way I feel connected to this developing and moving child of ours. Love this peanut.
I also know there are sleepless nights ahead, in a few short months, and some life changes so I guess I'm trying to enjoy everything about this journey.
3rd trimester...please be good.
Here we go...xoxo
