Second Time Around: The Second Trimester- Part 2

Week 22- Feeling and seeing Baby from the outside!

Week 23- Starting to have a legit bump. People close to me mention I'm fat. ;) First twinges of sciatica popping up. I'm realizing I am more nervous about this pregnancy than I first realized. It has been a week of nightmares (I never have any when I am not pregnant) and I'm understanding that I won't be able to fully relax until I have a healthy baby in my arms.

Week 24- Sciatica hits big time. Feeling fat. Baby Brother is a mover and shaker and this ultrasound is no different. It takes some maneuvering but the doc manages to see everything and we're still having a boy! Time for a mega to do list.

Week 25- Sleeping a little better. Viability is good- now this kiddo needs to bake as long as possible. Keeping busy with lots of activities and trying to get started on the to do list. Nervous about the GD test.

Week 26- Happy for the distraction..we're off for some shopping! Passed GD test with flying colors- yay! A week as a single parent (i.e. lifting: in and out of crib, in and out of car, in and out of highchair, etc.) and my sciatica is unbearable.

Week 27- Home again! Lots of rest makes the back better. Realizing pushing the stroller is a major trigger for sciatica. Lots of comments on the tummy. Definitely bigger than I was the first time around and already feeling pretty stretched out. Ready to "graduate" to the third trimester: baby getting close but still so far away.
