Symptoms: The doctor said I'm measuring 3 weeks ahead and I can feel it...my skin is feeling very tight and my belly is getting really heavy. I doubt I'll have her 3 weeks early (and I REALLY don't want to) but 1 week early would be great! I've been going to the bathroom a lot, sometimes just a little tinkle comes out (tmi, sorry lol), which means it's just the baby sitting on my bladder.
I've been waking up catching my breath in the middle of the night this week and I've also been having palpitations, so I got my heart checked out by a cardiologist to make sure everything was okay....they said that's it's a perfectly normal heart that is working perfectly as well! Good news!!! Gotta figure out why I've been waking up not able to breath though :-/
Cravings: I'm back to craving applesauce and ginger ale this week. It's because the nausea has stepped it up a bit this week at around 6pm (my usual time). Applesauce and ginger ale are the 2 things that settle my stomach the fastest.
Baby: This week, my BabyCenter app says the baby is 2 1/4 pounds. She can see light that filters through the womb. I've been feeling her little elbows sliding across my belly a lot this week, sometimes it startles me! I've also had a lot of Braxton Hicks contractions this week so I've been upping my intake of water.
