This week marks my 23rd week of pregnancy. You know what that means! Only one more week until the big V (viability, for those who have female body parts on the brain!)!
Here is a belly shot from today:
I have finally gotten over my bad cold! Yes, my nose is still runny, but that's nothing new for me. I'm able to breathe again, so that's a definite improvement.
Overall I'm feeling really great. The worst thing, which isn't even awful, is that it's hard for me to get comfortable at night. The Snoogle and I have become regular bed partners. I find it comfortable as a pillow, and convenient for the between-the-knees pillow.
But... it doesn't stop me from rolling onto my back. And on my back is not the position I should be sleeping in. I wake up often in the middle of the night only to realize I'm on my back, and then I pick a side. I usually pick my left (which is the side I always slept on pre-pregnancy), but now it's not always comfortable. So I'll switch to the right. And so on and so forth, all night long.
I think I'm going to have to bust out the Utterly Yours pregnancy pillow that my friend sent me.
Buster has already complained about the Snoogle and it's aid in the decline of our intimacy. It's tough to work around that thing. So I just don't. Bad wife, I know. And now that I'm going to add another pillow into the mix... there is no hope for Buster.
We should have gotten a king-size bed.
On Thursday, I have my fetal echocardiogram. This was recommended to me because my brother passed away from a congenital heart defect.
To say I'm not nervous would be a lie. I'm a bit nervous. But, I've heard several reassuring stories from many ladies, so I truly think everything will be ok. It's just so difficult to not be nervous.
I also scheduled my 3D ultrasound for the end of October. I'll be about 28 1/2 weeks along at that point, so hopefully we'll get some good photos. My baby shower is the weekend following, so if I get a good face shot of Henry, I'll frame it and display it at the shower (even though Buster thinks this is creepy).
I've been meaning to do a nursery post for some time now... perhaps I will get to that soon! Buster has already painted the nursery (gray and white), and I hope to pick up our furniture this weekend!
