Pregnancy update: I'm feeling good. No nausea. I have the appetite of a growing teenage boy. I don't have any specific cravings. Really, everything sounds good haha… Especially corn salad, chocolate, and crackers. I feel like I'm getting my energy back. Still feel a little more tired than normal, but not too bad. My skin seems to be clearing up slightly. Still gross, but not as bad. The only hard thing right now is my sciatic nerve. Ugh. It kills and fires all day, especially when I take the babies for walks, load them into the car, or even lean down to change their diaper. I've been working out more lately and now I can't. I was hoping to stay really active all pregnancy, but this is killing me. I went to the chiropractor twice, but he said I have him stumped. He said one leg is longer than the other and I'm crooked. He tried everything but it felt the same when I left. It has gotten progressively worse over the past 3 weeks. I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?? He said to go get a deep massage and maybe try acupuncture. He said I should go see an orthopedic surgeon and see what they say. I'll try anything. A friend of the family (scientist/dentist) asked how my diet was. Ummmm…. Not the best. He said sugar is a natural anti-inflammatory and to try and stay away from it. That's a tough one for me…. Ahhhh…. But I'll try.
I haven't felt any movement yet. Or maybe I'm mistaking it for gas or something. Haha... This baby seems to be healthy and growing perfectly. It was moving all over the place during the ultrasound. Cutest thing ever. We just love this little baby already.
I told the ultrasound tech that I wanted to know the babies gender, just not right now. Curtis is out of town until March 7th, so I wanted to find out together. She turned the screen when she went to the baby's bottom and printed out a pic of "the goods". We'll see……..
