Baby Update

It's been a while since I've added anything new and nothing is more frustrating than a blog that doesn't get updated. OK, so I can think of a few things that are more frustrating.

Anyhow, 19-20 weeks into the pregnancy and we're seeing some big changes! Literally. The biggest and most exciting is that I'm not sick 24/7 so therefore I'm gaining weight! Heartburn is now a problem, but usually nothing that a little baking soda water can't cure. The baby is really active, especially when I'm laying down. I certainly don't remember Cade being this active so early in the pregnancy, but it's reassuring and fun to feel all the kicks and jabs and body parts pushing out against my belly. I can't believe how big I'm getting. I'm already finding certain things more difficult to do because of the 'expansion' and I have a long way to go! I had to do an inter-library loan to find Ina May's Guide to Natural Childbirth. Apparently there isn't a huge demand for that type of book out here, so it's coming from a city library about 1 hour away. Hopefully that book will help me to find my confidence back about birthing. Currently I'm too nervous to think about it much.

Next on the agenda, picking out names. I have a feeling that won't be accomplished until the very end of the pregnancy.
