Well, there isn't anything exciting to say this week. Work sucks this week, and I am just trying to make it through to my next ultrasound next Tuesday. Our trip to Sacramento was really nice. One of my good friends in California is pregnant and due just 5 days before me. She had a miscarriage just this past summer, so we are both in the same boat emotionally. Its really nice to have someone who understands exactly how I feel. I think it will be really cool to have our babies about the same time too. I am excited to find out what we are both having!
I don't feel sick much anymore, but I am starting to feel very uncomfortable off and on. I get random aches and pains and my lower back hurts sometimes. I'm afraid of how I will feel later on if I'm already having this problem. Hopefully it will just stay like this and won't get much worse. I can handle this.
I have always been a stomach sleeper. Its just so much more comfortable to me. Right after I found out I was pregnant it became really uncomfortable to sleep on my stomach, so I had to adjust to sleeping on my back. I had finally adjusted to the change and was doing fine, when it started to become uncomfortable on my back too. So, now I have to sleep on my side, which I have absolutely never done before. I kept having to turn over every hour or so because my shoulder and hip started hurting on one side. It was terrible! I mentioned it to my sister and she said I need a body pillow. I am a 1 pillow kind of girl. Darren has 6 pillows on his side of the bed, but I have always only had 1. I don't like to be constricted when I sleep. I enjoy spreading out. Unfortunately, I don't have much of a choice anymore. I broke down and got the body pillow. I hate using it, but it definitely makes sleeping on my side more comfortable. It will just take me a while to get used to. It doesn't help that I get up about 3 times every night. :( I have always said that if I have kids I would like to have at least 2. I may rethink that if it means being so uncomfortable for months. I know Darren says no way on 2 kids, but the option will remain open. We'll see. I have to make it through another 24 weeks or so.
