Its been a while since I've done a pregnancy update. The second trimester has been pretty easy with the exception of a few ailments. As of tomorrow, I will have three months until my due date. If this little girl is anything like my other three, she should be here in about two and a half months. Nice! Still, I try not to think about it too much...or it just DRAGS. As far as her current progress, she should be about two pounds now and about the size of a head of broccoli. Some say she should probably know mine and Alex's voice by now. I'm thinking she'll probably know my kids screams and cries better ;)
She is definitely getting more active. I am feeling her pretty high up. It kinda feels like my rib cage has a rib spreader in it that is slowly prying open. I can't lay on my back anymore, because then I can't breath. I am sleeping pretty well thanks to a little sleeping pill called Unisom. I take about a 1/2 tab every night and I LOVE the effects.
Everything else is like my other pregnancies. Varicose Veins....seriously disgusting. I waddle like a duck. But, the best of all...."happy hormones". No seriously. Around this stage of my pregnancies my hormones seem to be in a somewhat "perfect" balance. Despite some things we've been going through, I still feel the effects of these "happy hormones". Don't get me wrong, I still have those days, and the kids still push my buttons, but I tend to have a little more patience and tolerance.
Our little baby girl still has no name. I am completely STUMPED! We are having the hardest time coming up with names we like. So I'm needing some serious help. Alex likes the name Jayde. My girlfriends say its a "stripper" name and Alex's brother thinks we're black (I am not racist)... but now that won't leave my head and I can't bring myself to name her that. Should I do something with and "ah" at the end? My other girls are Dejah and Mycah.....this was not intentional...but should I stick with that trend? One syllable? Two syllables? More? Common name? Unique name? (not too out there mind you).... I need ideas, so throw me any and all!
