The baby has dropped and oh what a feeling. While I will say it is easier to breathe, the shift in weight is causing my hips and inner thighs to be a little sore. It feels like I have done a mega leg workout at the gym. I am also experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions. I am enjoying this as it is giving me the chance to practice breathing through those tightenend muscles and relax other body parts surrounding them.
The nesting instinct comes in waves and I was happy to act on it while Joe was away on a trip. It is a fine balance however between using that time to clean and using it to put my feet up and relax. I have a little hand swelling and retention of fluids in my ankles. Luckily it is not a 24-7 thing and I continue to drink water to keep everything equaled out.
We are sooo excited!!!!
