Thanks to everyone for the great response to my blog. I know you haven't all left comments, but just hearing that you're reading it inspires me to keep going.
Hence this, the second post.
I said in the first post that I didn't seem to be having too many symptoms, right? Well one that I am having over and over again is FBT (aka Frequent Bathroom Trips). These FBT have now progressed in the last week to include the infamous ENITMOMPSFBT (aka Every Night In The Middle Of My Precious Sleep Frequent Bathroom Trips). And as it usually does, my feet on the cool linoleum and just having to get out of my comfortable bed for these trips wakes me up enough that it takes me a few minutes to get back to sleep. So while I lay there, praying Eric will stop snoring, I usually start to compose blog posts in my head. And at that time they are always brilliant, riveting, and full of amazing insights. Sadly by the time I get up the next morning, all these awesome thoughts are gone from my head. And so you are left with this.
In the great tradition of many pregnant couples before us, Eric and I have decided to do weekly pictures to follow the physical changes pregnancy imparts on a woman's midsection. As such, here is the first set, taken on the Saturday night of week nine. (We're not even officially parents yet and already are weekend nights are going down the tubes!) (I can't believe I'm really going to post these on the internet for anyone to see, but here goes.)
In addition to FBT, I have now another symptom of pregnancy to add to the list of having experienced. Luckily I don't mind this one nearly as much. On this long Labor Day weekend I ended up taking four naps totaling between 5 and 6 hours. While I've been slightly more tired the last few weeks, this was the first time I actually was tired enough to sleep during the day. Unfortunately, I do have to go back to work tomorrow, which is going to greatly impede my naptime. I'm hoping I'll either have time for a catnap during lunch, or right away when I get home, or that maybe the tiredness will restrict itself to the weekends. Sadly, I don't think any of these options are very likely.
I think that is all the updates for now. Hope everyone had a great long weekend and I'll post again in the next couple days!
