I have been feeling pretty good, but today I feel pretty terrible. I woke up last night feeling really sick and fought throwing up for a long time (but I didn't!). Then my mid/upper back was hurting like crazy and I couldn't get comfortable so I finally went into the other room and slept a little better. But today I've been feeling a little nauseous all day and my back is killing me. I think I'm finally going to invest in the ridiculous pregnancy pillow. It's not so much about the money of it as I think it's a ridiculous extravagance. Part of me wonders if I woke up feeling so sick because I was sleeping on my back, and the pregnancy pillow would prevent that. Or maybe I just ate something that isn't agreeing with me. Who knows. But I'm pretty sure I can't go another 3.5 months like this.
The baby has been moving around a lot lately! I even felt it moving at the Broncos game, but I think that was because it was too noisy to sleep. Last night and today it felt like it was doing flips. I really enjoy that part of pregnancy, and it has always been something I've looked forward to. It's awesome to know that it's in there.
I have been craving cinnamon like mad this week, too. I've been eating a lot of cinnamon toast crunch, cinnamon toast, and cinnamon coffee cake this week. I feel like my mood has been pretty good although my patience with the dogs has been pretty short. They are driving me nuts during my work day. Chase is very on edge and always seems to think I'm going to get him some food or something and Jack won't stop barking. So that's been fairly annoying.
Total Weight Gained: 12.5 pounds still
Waist Size: 41 inches. I gained .5 inches since last week.
Sleep: Was good until last night.
Most Exciting Moment: Feeling the baby kick in the ultrasound room and then seeing it kick on the ultrasound. That was really cool!
Baby is the Size of a: Rutabaga. Ruta-what?? We aren't quite sure that we've ever had one. I think the baby is probably a little bigger than that since they said it weighs 1 lb, 14 oz.
Miss Anything? Today I miss feeling normal, but I have been pretty good. This question is kind of hard for me to answer because I think I'm so grateful for the baby that it makes "missing" anything seem dumb. It's just 9 months. I feel like I always say the same thing: sandwiches, sleep, a normal-feeling back, wine, etc. but I'm ok with it all. I kind of miss steak, but then when I think about actually having it, it kind of grosses me out. So I guess I don't really miss it.
