When I was pregnant with Kennedy, I actually kept a pregnancy journal and documented every phase of the pregnancy. Needless to say, that was not the case this time around. With the exception of the few photos I have taken, I haven't written anything down! So, I thought it might be nice to jot down a few things I would like to remember about this pregnancy because I know I may not remember the little details.
*** First and foremost, this has been a GREAT pregnancy. I really can't complain. There have been absolutely no complications and I have felt really good for the majority of it.
*** I found out I was pregnant on October 24th, 2010.
*** I had a slight bit of nausea in the beginning but it was completely gone by about 11 weeks.
*** I walked and did the elliptical 3-4 times per week until my eighth month when we moved and I got too distracted by unpacking and getting settled.
*** I started wearing maternity clothes at 16 weeks.
*** We found out we were having another little girl at my 18 week appointment (January 31, 2011).
*** We moved into our new house when I was 32 weeks pregnant. The move and subsequent unpacking prompted a nice case of tendonitis in my feet which took about 2 painful weeks to heal.
*** I have had a handful of nighttime charlie horses in my calves. Ouch!
*** No major cravings which was true of Kennedy's pregnancy as well... I am just more likely to cave into my normal cravings (i.e. macaroni and cheese, ice cream and muffins to name a few)...
*** I did better with my overall weight gain - 30 lbs this time versus the 50 lbs I gained with Kennedy.
*** My favorite part of pregnancy is feeling the baby move- it is pretty amazing.
Despite all the great things about this pregnancy, I really am ready to wrap it up! Stay tuned for baby news (hopefully sooner than later!).
