Another fairly uneventful pregnancy week in the books.
This week, we bought a dresser for the nursery!
I found this at a most excellent antique market a friend clued me into. This bad boy was $127.50, is solid oak, and will be refinished. I’m thinking of painting it either white or charcoal gray, with fun red knobs.
- Movement is pretty regular now, and if I don’t feel him, I can usually poke or shake my stomach a bit to feel something. It’s reassuring. They are getting stronger every day, too! Not to the point where they’re painful or uncomfortable, but they do occasionally make me pause and say, “whoa.”
- Craving: hard boiled eggs. Random? But okay, easy enough. And healthy!
- We picked a pediatrician this week. It was easy enough; a friend recommended theirs and I looked them up. They accept our insurance, and I really like that they have an on-staff lactation consultant and a breastfeeding support group. Done and done.
- Daycare continues to frustrate me. I dragged my feet on this decision for awhile, but we ultimately decided that me going back to work makes the most sense. And now, I’m looking for spots in JANUARY, and am already being waitlisted! What the hell. It’s hard enough to make the phone calls, and then to hear “sorry, we’re full” makes me want to scream.
Physically, I feel pretty good. I usually have a numb right buttcheek by the end of the work day, though. I definitely feel like my mobility is getting to be limited—twisting is a no-go, and stretching out at CrossFit is interesting because my belly gets in the way.
On to week 26—last week of the second trimester! Holy crap!
