I feel like I am all mixed up. My night is day and my day is night. The positives? I don't really care that I am sleeping all day and up all night. Perfect for baby.... right??
Also I seem to be really productive when insomnia hits. I read 2 entire books. One was a crochet murder mystery (I know, geeky!) and the other was a book on vintage crochet. Sigh, it was so beautiful looking at all the old patterns from the 1920's-50's. And all the ugly colors haha
Feeling inspired, I crocheted. I'm making amazing progress on my brother in law's scarf and I am actually excited to show it off but I will have to find my camera first and also my measuring tape.
I used the baby kick counter in my pregnancy app. The baby is healthy and active enough if it kicks 10 times in 2 hours (source) but apparently my kid is an overachiever, because he kicked 10 times in just under 3 minutes. So yay!
I typically work evening hours anyway so it's not a big deal if I sleep from noon to 7 or 8 at night when my shift actually starts. I know, be jealous.
I'm experiencing a fun, new pregnancy pain! My lower back twinges. With sharp shooting, oh my god did someone just knife me?! kind of pain.
So I just ice it and lay in bed anyway. Meh.
Oh, and I drool now. No joke. It just uhm sort of happens. Especially during sleep. I wake up because I nearly drown in my own soggy pillow. I guess it's pretty common, though its more common in the first trimester and not the last 3 weeks.... but every pregnancy is different. Your results may vary.
My breasts and nipples are very ....temperature sensitive now. That's as nice as I can say it. Let's just say I get really cranky when it's cold. Because it hurts. I'm considering walking around with those hand warmer packs in my bra. I wish I were kidding.
Haven't had any more contractions. Water hasn't broken. Got 15 days (?!?!????!!!@$%) left until my due date. Golly gee willickers, that was a fast year. HOLY CRAP Christmas is in 11 days?!?!
I guess it doesn't really feel like the holiday season because
I'm a little loopy. So I am going to force my husband to let me wander around the grocery store aimlessly at 2 am because I am going stir crazy. Also I want a milk shake. Mmm.
