19 Weeks

I had been fighting off a cold for the last couple of weeks, and this week I finally lost that battle. I now have a sore throat and stuffed up nose, and this makes me even more nervous about this winter. We all normally get illness after illness for several months, and with a compromised immune system now, I can't imagine that this winter will be that fun for me on that front.

On the positive side, the nausea appears to have finally gone away! And then going back to the negative side, my sleep has gotten even more miserable. I'm back to waking up each morning between 3-4am and then barely sleeping the rest of the night. I even got my pregnancy pillow out of the attic in case some subconscious concern about sleeping on my back was disrupting my sleep, but that didn't help either.

I also had an appointment with the midwives this week, which went well... except for the fact that I managed to wash my hands with lotion while I was there, and I put my keys where my sunglasses go in my car and then was about to leave with my sunglasses when I got back to work. Sigh. Anyway, I was measuring right at 19 weeks, new baby's heartbeat was about 150bpm, and they were quite impressed with how much it was moving around. Like, to the point where they could barely get the heartbeat on the doppler since new baby was kicking and moving away from it so quickly :)
