Anyways, the point is that I check my blogs all the time to remind myself of certain milestones and sometimes just to reminisce. Today, I want to make a record of something so if I decide to go ahead and have that fourth baby (boy), there will be a light at the end of the tunnel...
I'm nearly 20 weeks pregnant and I'm feeling so. much. better. It's amazing. I'm reminded of the person I used to be. I can finally put in a full day's work around the house and still have the energy to be excited about the America's Next Top Model finale (Ann!?! Really, Tyra?). I'm much happier, much healthier and much muchier in general. So remember this future Margaret, the first trimester is HELL but just endure it because things really do get better.
(Speaking of feeling better, I've been busy designing Christmas cards so put your orders in now. Also, just because I've already seen your card doesn't mean I don't want it hanging on my fridge!)
And in the spirit of pregnant record keeping, at my ultrasound yesterday I was told that I have a low lying placenta which in most cases will resolve itself by the third trimester. In some cases though, it doesn't move and you have to have a c-section. The tech reminded me that I've "been there and done that so you know, no big deal." Except that it is and I'll be incredibly pissed off at my placenta if I end up with another c-section. Any success stories of migrating placentas, blog readers?
Now it would be appropriate for me to end this post with a photo of my "baby bump" like so many of my cute, petite pregnant friends have been doing lately. But I promise you, that photo does not exist. Mostly because there isn't much of a bump but rather an itchy layer of blubber. Just imagine me but even fatter and with really bad skin. JOY!
