29 weeks

25 Dec

> 29 weeks.
> Belly is starting to get really heavy – I am wearing the belt now. Yesterday after over an hour of sitting in traffic, my belly hurt. It was a strange sort of pain, full and sort of right where thw womb is (or rather where it was back when it didn’t occupy the whole space inside).
> It hurt only when I stood, I was ok while seated, so I figured nothing to worry.
> Once I got home I put the maternity belt on and ahhhhh sighed with pleasure.
> I put the belt before leaving the house today.
> I think the baby spends most of the time in a breech position – and that’s why it feels so heavy. I guess. Once the baby turns – if it turns – it should get a bit better.
> I also am waking up now to pee around 5 am, just like I did in the first trimester. And falling asleep in the evening is getting harder and harder, takes longer and longer – I’m not quite sure why.
> Baby is very busy kicking, tossing and turning. Timothy was more of a stretcher – this one actually kicks and sometimes hurts. For example, if I’m lying on my side, belly sort of lying next to me, and the baby kicks that side of the belly that resides on the surface of the bed, it’s as if he pinches me – from inside and outside the belly. It hurts.
> Unlike the winter when I was pregnant with Timothy, it’s a real winter this time around. I don’t remember so much snow in December in Toronto ever. I don’t remember it ever being a white xmas here. So walking is a bit of a scary thing at this point in my pregnancy – it’s slippery.
> I went gift shopping and realized how much I miss shopping. Getting preggo with Timothy, then nursing, losing the belly and huge boobs gradually, then getting preggo again – it just never makes sense buying new clothes. I bought some, here and there, but most if my clothes are old and boring. So while I was shopping I bought 6 pairs of crazy patterned knee-high socks. Fun!
> I woke up today with an unpleasant feeling in my belly. I even feared they were early contractions, but I think they are just a bit if indigestion. But I was worried there for a short little while.
> The city is covered in ice – we’ve had a very bad ice rain storm over the weekend. It wasn’t very bad in my part of the city, but pockets of the city have been sitting with no electricity for more than 24 hours now. But hey – ice covered trees look nice and festive.

    Please stay safe with all the ice! It’s hard enough keeping balance with the huge belly… I’m glad your belt is giving you some relief. As you know, this baby was also breech, and I found it to be very uncomfortable! I also hear you about the clothes…a lot of the ones that fit now are the wrong season, but I hate to buy new ones when I know my body will change so much in such a short time. Glad you’re feeling good overall, though. Happy 29 weeks!!
