I made it to work today. I don't know how.. I had a pretty sleepless night.. and it was still thundering and raining!
Last night, I went to bed aching and tired. Either this boy has his feet lodged in my ribcage, or my belly is just growing so fast that it knocks the wind out of me. Because my ribs are SORE! So after laying around most of the evening, I turned in early. Sometime between 2 and 3 I was brought back from a deep sleep by the loudest booming ever. A thunderstorm (with a tornado warning) was sweeping over New Orleans. Not just any thunderstorm-- but the loudest thunderstorm I'd ever heard, accompanied by lightning that lit up the sky to near daylight. The wind was howling, the windows were shaking. I wasn't gonna be resting.
I was up looking out the windows, taking the opportunity to use the bathroom, pacing around. The dog was up, the baby was awake and kicking, husband was groggy but conscious. The whole house was wide awake. I guess
a lot of nights will be like this in the next few months.
So here we are..
How far along? Tomorrow I'm 28 weeks. We're officially crossing into the 3rd trimester! Please don't let the energy leave me.. I still need to do so much!
Baby Size: This boy is over 2 pounds now and packing on the weight.
Pregnancy Updates: I'll be going in for my glucose test at the end of the week. Hoping for a good result.
Bellybutton: Still an "innie" but my tummy felt tight and sore last night. I think that means my innie days are numbered.
Wedding Ring: It's on, but my fingers swelled really bad in the heat after a concert last weekend. Might be wearing a large band soon.
Symptoms: Sore ribs.. SORE. I can't get comfortable. Other than that, I feel great.
