That said, there's a lot of uncomfortableness.
The Good:Feeling Daughter move. Amazing! Miraculous!
Knowing that God has finally made me a mother to a living child.
Feeling Daughter respond to my voice or Mat's voice.
Knowing that I'm giving Daughter the best start.
Having Mat already stepping up and taking such good care of Daughter and I. I don't know what I would do without him!
This time to bond with Daughter. Not many adoptive parents get this time for bonding!
The Bad:Back aches
Inability to get comfortable
So hot! All the time!
Pregnancy carpal tunnel. Didn't know about that one... but wrist braces at night (which make me hotter) help.
The Ugly:Stretch marks.
Size! I've already gained 40 lbs and I still have 8 weeks to go! But they tell me it's healthy.
Waddling. Everywhere. I do still try to walk lot, but it goes pretty slow and it's more waddle than walk.
The painful movements. It actually happens a lot- I just switch positions and Daughter does too.
The emotional extremes. I can laugh or cry at the drop of a hat. I put my socks on inside out the other day and, fortunately, found it hilarious rather than crying. Seriously-I laughed way to much for a sane person.
All in all, the good far outweighs the bad (and the even the ugly). I'm enjoying my pregnancy and I want Daughter to stay in there the proper amount of time! :)
