Yes, there is a bun in there and it is starting to show! It really does depend on what I am wearing these days, but I can tell that I am definitely expanding. Just yesterday I bought my first pair of maternity jeans. I was hesitant, but when I tried them on I realized how much more comfortable I will be.
One thing that I read and hear all the time is the importance of sleeping on my left side. There is a big artery that the uterus puts extra weight on if I sleep or lay on my back, which in turn limits blood flow to me and the little one. I have been ok with the left-side-sleeping for a while now, but my left arm is really starting to protest. I wake up in the night with my arm feeling sore and crampy. I can imagine this is probably not going to improve so I think I need to start making myself a nest of pillows to sleep in or invest in a body pillow or something.
So, that is my pregnancy ramble for today. Things have been going great and I feel really fortunate to have moved this far along, without much queasiness or morning sickness. Ryan and I are both so excited and thrilled and the reality of the pregnancy and our future roles as new parents is really starting to sink in. I can't wait to feel that first kick! Ah, it's so fun!
