Emotionally I feel - Less hormonal but I still get irritated quickly.
Physically I feel - Mostly comfortable. The two biggest discomforts are from TMJ and round ligament pain of the uterus growing outside of the pelvic girdle. I also find it hard to find a comfortable sleep position.
My thoughts about baby- I am curious to see baby again via ultra sound. I also am getting more excited about the possible gender of the baby. I am surprised so many women find out before 20 weeks the gender of their baby.
My dreams about baby- My most recent dream about baby was that I gave birth to a girl.
What I imagine baby looks like - I am hoping baby is a nice mix between my husband and I. I would be thrilled if baby got my husband’s beautiful eye color.
My top concerns- Getting back to a normal sleep schedule after Ramadan, getting enough walking in, eating enough protein and having my husband’s visa process done before baby arrives! I am also trying to find more prenatal DHA since I just ran out here but not sure where to look for it.
My best joys- Seeing my little “bump,” progress and how much my husband is working hard to care for myself and baby. I will be thrilled when we get to week 14 – the official second trimester! I am also looking forward to our next prenatal visit – and hope we get to see the baby and hear the heart beat again on the ultrasound.
