Londyn and I are growing quite rapidly at 16 weeks left to go! My hips are constantly sore and my lower back aches consistently. She is kicking and groovin' in my belly much more and Andrew can finally feel her moving. My body temperature is becoming an issue as I go from a popsicle to as hot as the sun in a matter of seconds! Cravings are pretty minimal... but VOLUME is the real issue. I find myself eating more and MORE as my appetite continues to grow. Chocolate/peanut butter ice cream is a fav and celery stalks with peanut butter on top is de-lish as well. My feet are beginning to swell and I find my them resembling Miss Piggy's more and more each day. I have also decided to transfer my OB care to a Nurse Practitioner/Midwife in the Providence Newberg Woman's Center. Her name is Nan Macy and I will be meeting with her for the first time on March 31st. My OB and I just weren't a good fit and I strongly feel that it is crucial to have a comfortable relationship with your health care provider.
We'll see how it goes with the Midwife!
Overall, I am a pregnant woman with roller coaster hormones. Everything evokes a dramatic emotion these days... whether it is extreme sadness or overwhelming goofiness. Either way, I continually thank my husband for all the patience and love he has for his crazy wife.
