26 Weeks, 4 Days

I've been coming to the conclusion (knock on wood) that I've had a very "uninteresting" pregnancy thus far. In a GOOD way. I've not been constipated or "stopped up" if you will (yet). I'm not swelling even in my ankles, feet, or face (yet). I have hardly had any back pain (yet). The morning sickness was livable-- I managed to keep everything down. I've only had leg cramps once. Aside from an occasional but rare toss and turn night, I sleep very well. I never got a UTI, which is very common in early pregnancy especially for women prone to it (me). I've felt pretty good overall, albeit a slight bit more tired over the past couple weeks.

I'm just expecting it all to come crashing down sometime soon as I near the....dun...dun...dun THIRD Trimester. Now, a third of what I read says I already started this week, a third says I start at the end of this week and a third say I'll start at the end of next week. Just to prolong the inevitable, I'm waiting to officially enter third tri-dom until the end of next week.

Mr. Squirmy got the hiccups 2-3 times yesterday. Every time he hiccups, it jolts his entire body and I can feel him from one side of my belly to the other. I can tell when he has them because his movements are more rhythmic instead of sporadic as usual. I can't help but chuckle each time. It's really cute.

You are fortunate it's gone so smoothly! Just be prepared for the pain on delivery day (being conscious of the fact it could be more or less than you're anticipating!) :)

Are you doing natural childbirth or getting doped up???
