Still plugging along. This is apparently the part of the pregnancy where I start complaining about the symptoms A LOT. I have terrible heartburn no matter what I eat or drink--thank goodness for Zantac. I don't sleep well at all, mainly because my hips hurt when I lay on either side, so I have to switch back and forth all night. Maggie now frequently sits on my bladder so I'm in the bathroom all the time--I am now calling the restroom at work "My Other Office." My feet swell up every afternoon--I had to buy bigger shoes to wear at work.
That said, ALL of this is WAY better than the NICU. One of my friends from college who was due the same time as me had her baby this week. She's doing well and all, but I am really grateful to be pregnant still, instead of sitting by an incubator like my friend.
Next week, I start my every week doctor appointments, which will last until the baby comes. I can't believe I'm less than 7 weeks now from my due date!
