4 months down. 5 months to go.
The 1st trimester was KILLER. To be completely honest, it kicked my $$$ (I would say that, but it’s not the kind of thing people said where I come from).
I was terribly nauseous for months on end, lying horizontal for most of the day. I could barely even take a shower (and you should have seen my hair!).
It’s getting better. I’m actually cooking again and staying up past 8:30pm…sometimes.
BUT I haven’t had that famous 2nd trimester burst of energy yet. Did you?
Still, I am exceedingly grateful for this new life who I feel moving inside of me. (I always feel my babies earlier than the books say I “should” be able to).
The plan is to have the baby at the local birth center w/ a midwife. I keep thinking about how lovely it would be to have a home birth, but the nearest hospital is 45min away and I have yet to receive a glowing midwife referral.
Regardless of where I end up delivering, I can’t wait to meet this little one in early April (third babies are somethin’ special so I hear…I was a third baby too). ;)
We’ll find out the gender in mid-November. Care to venture a guess?
