Just like last time, I recorded some thoughts during the first trimester and failed to do anything for the second trimester. Mostly the last few weeks have been a blur. My nausea has all but disappeared (yeah for small miracles!), but has been replaced by a variety of other symptoms. My scar tissue causes me near-constant pain. Some days it's only noticeable when I move certain ways. Other days it's a constant burning pain. Definitely annoying and even more so because I can't really do anything about it. I'm also experiencing a ton of groin pain and pressure. Pretty sure the little one is sitting pretty low. And carpal tunnel has started. Thankfully it only affects me at night, but boy is it annoying. The entire house has been battling some virus for the last weeks. I think we keep passing it back and forth. This has definitely dampened my mood. Whatever it is has triggered a few migraines resulting in blurred vision. Not fun at all.
On the lighter side of things, we've narrowed down the little one's name to just a few choices. And I think it will be set within the next few weeks. It wasn't my first choice, but I've really grown to love it. Baby boy will be well-clothed from Arthur's hand-me-downs, so no big purchases over here. I did pick up a Baby Bjorn carrier at a garage sale a few weeks back. We have an Infantino carrier, but this was a steal at $10 and maybe this one like being worn. We're heading to the store within the next weeks to get Arthur a twin size bed to transition him out of the crib. I want to do it a few months before the baby comes to allow Arthur some time to get used to the idea. Otherwise, I'm just living day to day. Looking forward to getting through this last trimester and meeting the little one.
