Pregnancy is weird.
Because this nugget has her head situated square below my right ribcage, getting comfortable (especially while sitting) is especially difficult. Anytime you’d like to turn would be just fine with your Momma.
I’m craving crackers and cheese this week. Oh, and I almost forgot the holiday fudge covered Oreo cookies. Have y'all tried those? They are even better cold– try sticking them in the fridge. Heavenly. And the opposite of healthy.
Sleeping this week has been much easier than last. I have started stretching out my hips at the end of every day and that’s helped me be able to sleep on one side for more than 12.28 minutes at a time. Tossing and turning is for the birds. Apparently I’m one of those that carries stress in my hips.
Speaking of stress…. apparently my OB office and my health insurance company aren’t really seeing eye-to-eye these days. They are in the midst of a contract negotiation and as things stand, my current OB will no longer be in-network as of 1/1. I think it goes without saying that I’m no “normal patient” after 4 years and a handful of very difficult circumstances with them. I’m going to apply for continued coverage with my insurance company – but the thought of other doctors at another hospital delivering this baby makes me all sorts of anxious.
In her nursery, we have an assembled crib (but no mattress), painted walls (BM “Nimbus”), newly installed crown molding, and a beautiful old dresser to use as baby’s changing table. A far cry from what her random, hodgepodge room looked like 6 weeks ago. Now the fun part [decorating] begins!
Hard to believe I’m almost in the third trimester. And that I’m somehow still cramming myself into some of my larger, non-maternity clothes.
