I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and got to spend it with your loved ones. We had a busy 3 days and are sure glad that it is over. As you can see by my ticker at the very bottom of this blog, I have hit the double digit mark. I have 99 days (give or take) left until we meet Baby Natasha! And only 2 more weeks until I say goodbye to the 2nd trimester and welcome the 3rd trimester. Time is flying by!
Natasha is still the size of an eggplant, but putting on more weight. She is moving around more and more and I have definitely felt some strong jabs/kicks. Her eyes are forming this week and she will soon be practicing how to blink. The network of nerves in Natasha's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. She should now be able to hear Zac's voice, so we will have him start reading to her too!
I am happy to report that the wrist guards have helped me with my Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. Zac says I look like a fighter wearing them to bed, but they are getting the job done. The bolster is also helping my hips, but I have been noticing some sciatica pain in my lower back when I sit/stand/walk for too long. I guess this is all part of growing a human being in my uterus!
We wish you all a Happy & Healthy New Year!
