Yeah!! 20 weeks down and 20 weeks to go! Well actually maybe 18 weeks to go, since I will have a planned section. I didn't get a chance to write last week so I decided to but both weeks together.
I can definitely tell I am pregnant now. None of my jeans fit, so I am wearing dresseswhen I am not wearing scrubs. I have a pretty good little belly sticking out. I went to the doctor this week. Visit went good. I heard Claire's heartbeat. I just love that sound. I have gained 6 lbs since last visit. That is a total of 11 lbs in 20 weeks. I feel pretty good about that. I will have a second sonogram in November, to check on the position of the placenta.
Can you say constipation?! My goodness I have never been so stopped up. I have been taking some stool softener and that was not working so I took some Milk of Magnesium last night. Guess I am playing the waiting game to see if it is going to work. Next up, will be to try Miralax. Keeping my fingers crossed, this is a very unpleasant feeling.
Claire has been doing a lot of moving around. I get so much enjoyment out of staring at my stomach waiting on her to jump. (The little things that make us smile.) I have been feeling good overall minus the constipation. Excited about the fall weather and getting things in gear for Baby Claire.
