HOW BIG IS BABY?

Baby's now the size of an eggplant!

I have had more leg cramps than normal, most of them at night when my legs are not moving. I don't think it happens during the day, because I am moving around. 

I am excited to experience her hiccups. She has been so active this week, really moving and wiggling around. The other night Wayne pushed on the side of my belly and she punched him. He freaked out and said, "that was her." I responded with,"Yes, honey. She is really in there." It was super cute and hilarious all at the same time. I have to remember that I can feel her move all day long and it's "normal" to me. He doesn't get to experience that part of it.

I have also had a pretty constant back ache lately. My lower left side aches more than anything and sometimes I feel like my left leg is going to give out. Sometimes I have to walk really slowly to get anywhere, which for me is hard because I have always been a fast walker.

I have my glucose test tomorrow morning. I'm hoping everything turns out ok with that and I don't have to do the 3 hour test. After tomorrow's appointment we are going to try and switch clinics. We'll see how that goes!
I can't believe this is the last week of the 2nd trimester. I feel like time is just flying by. I'm trying to stay positive heading into the 3rd trimester as I know it is going to be probably the most difficult out.
