Pregnancy: Week 35

Physical Symptoms Pretty much same ol’, same ol’ in this department. I’ve still been experiencing the symptoms of carpal tunnel in both hands, but definitely worse in my right hand. It’s at its worst at night, so I try to make sure I wear my splint when I sleep. The splint, surprisingly, really helps. When…

Pregnancy: Week 34

The countdown has seriously begun. Wow. Physical Symptoms Welp, my ring is officially stuck on my finger. I’m sort of kicking myself for that too, because I took it off a few weeks ago because it was getting snug, then I put it back on because I thought I could probably wear it for a…

Pregnancy: Week 33

Where can I get this fanny pack?! Physical Symptoms Nothing totally new to report here. Truth be told, I’ve felt pretty good physically. The only thing that is weird at all is that for a few days I’ve had some pretty intense shoulder blade pain. The only thing that makes any sense at all to me…

Pregnancy: Week 32

I’m coming in just under the wire for this one, but it’s before midnight so it counts! Physical Symptoms I definitely have a new symptom that’s popped up this week: my hands hurt so bad. It feels like every joint in my fingers needs to pop and they’re just so sore and achy. I wondered if it…

Pregnancy: Week 31

Physical Symptoms Hmmmmm, what’s been going on this week. It’s been mostly in the mid-90s here, except for the temporary relief that rain brought, so my main objective has been trying to beat the heat. We’ve created something of an icebox in our bedroom: we have a window unit, and I also have a fan…

Pregnancy: Week 30

Holy crap, at the time of writing this is basically only have 9 weeks left of pregnancy. I’M BASICALLY IN SINGLE DIGITS. Physical Symptoms It seems that the third trimester fatigue has begun to set in. I’m not kidding, yesterday I walked up and down the stairs and I felt completely spent. Granted, I was…

Pregnancy: Week 29

I seriously can’t believe there are only 11 weeks left. We’re almost there!! Physical Symptoms This section is getting boring to write, and probably boring for people to read, too! It’s honestly the same ‘ol stuff it’s been for a while. The only time I really experience hip pain is if I’ve been laying on…

Pregnancy Update: 28 Weeks

So you know how last week was really a week? This was a week too. Physical Symptoms Things haven’t changed too much on this front. Still the same hip pain, same fatigue, same very mild swelling. My wedding ring did start to get uncomfortable from my hands swelling, so I decided to take it off…

Pregnancy Update: 27 Weeks

So…this has been a week. Physical Symptoms This will probably be a short section. Honestly nothing new to report. Baby continues to move a lot at weird times during the day. It seems like every time I want Josh to be able to see her moving my belly, she totally stops. It’s like she knows…

Pregnancy Update: Week 26

Turns out putting a reminder on my calendar actually worked! Physical Updates: I feel like I’m getting really redundant, but things are pretty much the same over here. Josh and I went to Savannah for his birthday/babymoon/he’s starting grad school next week so we’re taking a getaway, and all the walking we did really wore…

Pregnancy Update: Weeks 24 and 25

Ahhhhh y’all I know I forgot last week and I’m sorry! Physical Symptoms: Well, this week and last week have been fairly un-spectacular as far as symptoms. I would say I definitely haven’t had anything new, just a continuation of things that I’ve already been having. I will say, I have been noticing that I…

Pregnancy Update: Week 23

Almost missed it, but it’s coming in on time! Physical Symptoms It’s pretty much more of the same, I guess. I imagine this is going to end up being a pretty short post because not a lot has really changed. I’m still having hip and back pain, I feel fairly short of breath, and I’m…
