How Far Along? I'm 26 weeks and 6 days in this picture
Feeling/Symptoms? This week I've been feeling so big. I feel like I can't get around anymore and it isn't any fun. I'll be honest, the reality of gaining weight and being uncomfortable all of the time is catching up with me. I LOVE feeling Savannah move and kick, but I can't really say at this point that I'm loving being pregnant.
Doctor's Appointment: My last Dr.'s appointment was a big one in my eyes. I have been researching and reading about birth and labor and wanted to talk to my doctor about all of my options. After talking with her, I have decided that I want to have as natural of a childbirth as possible. If you are pregnant or are just curious, I suggest you check out the documentary "The Business of Being Born" (it's on Netfix). It totally changed my thoughts and feeling son childbirth. I have always been TERRIBLE at dealing with pain (seriously, I'm the baby when it comes to pain), and just always assumed that I would have an epidural because I couldn't handle labor and delivery This documentary plus all the additional reading I've done has reminded me that my body was designed to do this very thing, and that I have to prepare myself both physically and mentally for labor. I'm "training" so to speak right now, and I pray that I am able to have a safe and intervention free natural child birth.
Food Cravings/Aversions: I have had some weird cravings this week. I've not craved much of anything in the past month or so, but this week I was really wanting Chicken Fried Rice Chicken Helper (you know, the Hamburger Helper boxes but you use chicken instead), and Pop Tarts. I brought home Pop Tarts today and Jeremy thought it was Christmas :) I've never bought Pop Tarts for us before, so this was a real treat for him too :).
