Things I Want To Remember: Week 27 | Anchors Aweigh


Things I Want To Remember: Week 27

It's the last week of the second trimester! This is both exciting and terrifying, but mostly exciting! The weeks are still flying by, and knowing our son will be here soon is such a joyful thought. 

 1. I got my first charlie horse in the middle of the night, and ohhh did it hurt! Two days later, and my calf is still sore. I have been trying to make sure I am constantly drinking water and not tensing my legs when I roll over at night. 

2. Baby boy is still really active, mostly at night or right after I eat. As I type this, it feels like he is doing flips in my belly. I feel this weird tightness and it feels like something is turning over. It's just the best. 

3. I had a little scare Thanksgiving morning. I was holding my nephew and sat down when he fell asleep in my arms, and all of a sudden my limbs felt like they were going numb and my pulse started racing. I quickly handed the baby to his dad in case I passed out and stood up. I laid down on my bed and breathed heavily for a few minutes, and then everything normalized. It was only a couple of minutes, but it was scary. I think the way I was holding my nephew compressed something internally. I get out of breath fairly often, but never anything like that where I thought I might pass out. 

4. As it stands, working out has taken a back seat for the foreseeable future. I am still walking 1-2 miles a day with Jenny, but I don't know if that counts as working out since we have to stop and sniff everything ;). Fitness is really important to me, but I am listening to my body, and walking 1-2 miles with Jenny each day is really all I can muster right now. 

5. My twin sister and I both agree that I officially look bigger now than she did at 40 weeks pregnant. Love this big giant baby!

Oh wow, that Thanksgiving incident sounds scary!! Thank goodness you are okay!! I can't wait to see how much larger your belly gets over the coming weeks! You are totally rocking that bump!

Oh my goodness the Charlie horses are no joke! I was definitely not prepared for those.

Ugh the charlie horses. I got them a lot sooner with this pregnancy. They are the worst!
