So, How Are You Feeling?

I get this question all the time and if you don’t know what I am referring to…please scroll down. Sometimes I appreciate being asked and but other times it gets annoying, especially when it comes from people who are only trying to make conversation.

Well, anyway…how am I feeling? Well, I don’t throw up all day everyday anymore and luckily haven’t for a few weeks. By half way through, I don’t consider myself having hyperemesis any more but regular morning sickness, which is very manageable. I have actually gained back the weight I lost, plus some, which is good. It took me a lot longer to do that when prego with Tay. I can do what I want, eat what I want, etc. I do struggle with hypoglycemia like I did with my other babies but as long as I keep that in check, I am fine. I am even doing prenatal yoga a few times a week. Other than being absolutely exhausted (I am seriously useless after 8 pm every night) and needing all the help I can get from Drew, this is as good as it gets for me and my pregnancies. So I guess I am actually feeling pretty good!

I am already 23 weeks along but honestly I look and feel about 30. Ugh. Drew has been able to feel the baby moving for a couple of weeks now, which is really fun. I have been feeling the baby for about 10 weeks so I am glad I am no longer the only one. I love when my pregnancies become more than just me with a big belly to those I love the most. Carter is pretty anxious to feel the baby as well but can’t seem to sit still long enough despite our baby’s constant karate kicks. My belly button must look like a bulls eye from in utero. Tay however looks at us like we have two heads when we suggest that my growing belly is really a baby. I think she is coming around though. She seems more convinced when Carter shows interest.

I don't know how you do it! The "normal" morning sickness is enough to kill me. I know I've asked you that question multiple times so I hope you know I care! Hey, at least I don't rub your tummy, right??
