This pregnancy is by far my happiest one. The second trimester was actually enjoyable! I have loved my growing baby belly. I adore feeling my daughter move around inside my belly. In fact, I actually miss the feeling after my babes are born. And to know that this is my last time feeling it leaves me a bit heartbroken. A bittersweet ending.
However, I have now embarked on the 3rd…and things are getting typical. I am 30 weeks and 4 days and starting to feel it. Sciatica, RLS, bouts of insomnia, PELVIC PRESSURE!, back aches. All normal things for this stage of pregnancy, I know. But coming off a symptom free 2nd trimester makes all of these annoyances that much more annoying 🙂
The heartburn is being managed by meds. I am on a heavy anti-constipation regimen made up of stool softeners, mira-lax, natures calm, green smoothies, exercise, and the occasional cup of smooth move tea. The hemorrhoids are at bay for now. But that surely wont last!
