This past week has been rough. Besides the sore throat and clogged ears, runny nose, I can't sleep! I've been taking sleep drugs every night this week and I still lay in bed awake for at least 2 hours. I think that I am both nervous and anxious about having another baby and my mind just keeps going and going! Nick is still a baby :( and I don't want him to lose his time. I don't want to miss any one on one time with him - and now it is so limited with 2 months left. I know it will be fine when the baby is actually here but the anxiety leading up to it is hard for me. I've been trying to nap when Nick naps but I can't fall asleep. It's awful and I can't keep my eyes open. I haven't been able to do much at all. I've been using a Neti Pot to clear out my sinuses 2x a day - those things are crazy!
Last week or the week before the baby dropped and this week I've had no heartburn at all! :) The baby is kicking like crazy - lots of movement. I've had a feeling in the past few weeks that it is a girl, but I have no basis. I can't tell if I'm carrying differently than with Nick, but everything else feels the same. We'll see!
The funniest thing is still my obsession with Dove soap. I have it in every bathroom. I don't want to eat it or anything, ha. I don't really having any food cravings, some here and there but nothing that stands out. The latest one is that I want a couple of chocolate munchkins from dunkin donuts but I'm unmotivated to go and ask for 2 munchkins. A lady at work brought me a bag of 6 one time but I've never gone in and just asked for chocolate munchkins. Other than that, lots of milk!
