I'm actually around week 23 right now, but these were taken a few weeks ago. I've been really trying to keep up with my posts, but my computer is broken (this time for good) and I have so little leisure time these days that it is just so difficult to get anything done.
I'm well into my second trimester at this point. The morning sickness is truly more or less gone. I've also found that I have a lot more energy these days to do things. The frustrating part though is that my feet and ankles gave started to swell. So even though I have more energy and am in better spirits it's physically hard to do anything.
I expected my feet to turn into giant sausages though. Even though it hurts I'm still able to force myself through the day. The new challenge that I'm dealing with now is tailbone pain....or bum pain as I like to refer to it. It is awful!! I can't sit, stand, or lie down without being in agony. It's making work really difficult at the moment.
Which brings us to another fine moment in my pregnancy....working. Even with reduced hours working is getting more and more difficult by the day. The cinema is fine on it's own, but juggling two jobs just completely drains me. I don't really have a choice so I've got to pull through, but man is it ever a challenge.
After work my day doesn't get any more relaxing either. I have an unending amount of paperwork, bills, and phone calls to make. I'm losing my mind trying to remember where to be and what is due by when. I bought a few folders the other day to try and organize some of my crazy paper load...but my cat threw up all over them. So much for staying on top of the game.
So anyway, enough complaining....our little Micheal (Mee-hall) weighs approximately as much as a bag of sugar these days. He is quite active and has started kicking in the early hours of the day. He almost always kicks exactly three times in a row and then he's done. As adorable as his little kicks are some of them can be kind of alarming and take me by surprise. Roibeard finally felt him for the first time the other day. He is a proud papa!!!
Micheal went to his first ever concert the other day (Roibeard's first too). We went to see Belle and Sebastian. The little one was dancing around in my tummy the whole time! <3
