Week 17, going on 18!!


I'm at my all time high today! I have always had a thin frame from figuring skating, but it's noticeable I have a belly and at week 17 I'm pleased to say since my last appointment 4weeks ago, I have gained at least 6lbs. Yay!!

So with the little sleep I've gotten from discomfort and constant repositioning through the night, I'm glad to know what I'm feeling is very much normal.

Here's a bit mentioned from my weekly update:
"This week, or in the coming weeks, you may be privy to the uncommon joys of “round ligament pain. These not-so-lovely symptoms can doctors advise sleeping on your left side as lying on your back can compress your pelvic veins, include bellyaches, pain in the lower abdomen and sharp shooting and/or stabbing pains, most often expressed at the end of the day. Your suffering is due to stretched ligaments and muscles that support your ever-growing uterus. This is to be expected and is perfectly normal"

NOTE: Our new ward has around 5 other sisters from the Relief Society due the same week I am!! I loove it!
