|Lady Jr’s placenta is working at 100% and I’m feeling starting to feel the benefits, i.e. fewer negative symptoms. Hoorah.
Meanwhile, Lady Jr is about the size of a Philippine tarsier, whatever that is:
Two days late this week because we were visiting Michigan. No photo this week either for the same reason. I’ll write more about MI in another post.
Overall: My symptoms are so mild/non-existent at this point that I fully sympathize with all those people who don’t realize they’re pregnant until the third trimester – or beyond. Aside from some stabbing pain in my abdomen and a continued non-interest in wine, I feel fine. A little more easily fatigued than usual, but fine. To the point where I’m starting to get a little anxious for our next appointment which is still (!!) over a week away.
It doesn’t help that my app keeps being like “you could be feeling kicks around now!!” Stop it, app. You’re not helping.
Mood: Mostly mellow, a bit teary. I teared up during Lady’s seminar and I teared up when we flew back into Arizona and I teared up several other times during the week for a variety of reasons. I usually cry pretty easily, but not this easily.
Clothes: My sis-in-law sent me a care package full of her old maternity clothes and it is perfect timing. I’m still in that awkward not-quite-maternity but too-fat-for-my-own-clothes phase, so I’m mixing it up a little. Only problem with the maternity clothes is they actually make me look pregnant, and idk if I’m ready for that out in the world. I can still pass as just-a-little-too-much-cheesecake, although my wife told me she has definitely started noticing that I look pregnant. But then, she knows me best.
Fun(!) New Symptoms: Itchy foot on plane syndrome? IDK what this is, but it’s like I suddenly develop a nasty bug bite while on planes. Not comfortable, but at least it goes away right after. Only one more flight coming up, at least.
Exercise: We’ve switched to doing personal training with our Crossfit coach in lieu of classes because of Lady’s foot and omg it is SO MUCH better. I am pumped after our workouts instead of depressed and crying and feel like I’m actually getting something out of them. I’ll talk about some of the mods in a separate post for other failing-at-Crossfit pregnant ladies out there.
Dr Lady: Welp, we went to Michigan and she interviewed and presented a seminar and talked with every. single. person. ever. I got to watch her seminar and it’s always fun to see how much further she is in her research as well as see how much I understand. She did really, really well and everyone seems excited about her and they said we would find out if she got the fellowship “very soon.” I hope that means this week, but it could be anytime before June.
Phew. Can’t believe we’re at 16. Idk but I was so excited about getting to the second trimester I kind of forgot that it keeps going. 😛
