Honestly, I didn't realize I'd gone so long without posting again. Life just keeps running out from under me before I know it! I'll do my best with updates.
Babywise . . . At my last checkup, I actually lost a pound. Not surprising after my 5 pound gain over that weekend away! I was told everything sounded/looked good and I measured fine. Pelvic pain has been minimal - praise God. I'm having a decent amount of energy. There's some minor back pain that's to be expected at this point of the pregnancy. I've started getting quite a bit of indigestion/heartburn here lately. Doesn't matter what or even if I eat. I wonder if the old saying is true and Daniel will have lots of hair when he's born. I've also reached the stage of regular Braxton Hicks contractions. Fun times!
I have several friends expecting any day now. Many of them have been struggling with false labor and sleepless nights. I'm reminded of the same struggles with my last two pregnancies and wonder if that will soon be my issue as well. From what I read in my old journals, those issues started around 36-37 weeks. In sadness, a fellow church member lost their newborn during labor and delivery. Though I'm not close friends with them, it's been very hard for me to process their loss.
I know it's been a while but I'm going to have to cut this short. I'm tired and there is still much to do before bed. Hopefully my next post will be a little more thorough.
