Just checking in to update anyone who might be wondering.
Baby is growing, as evidenced by my struggle for enough air at times. She's sitting on my sciatic nerve and I compound it by curling up in my chair the way I do. I'm trying to make a conscious effort to correct that and at least curl up differently. I have had a few days that any movement made me want to cry because my hip was out of place and the nerve was doubly pinched.
My mood is one I'm continually praying about because I'm frustrated about the limits my body has given me, so I am unable to "nest" in the manner that the urges strike, and my family isn't exactly cooperating, so all of that piles up and I've been downright angry lately. I'm fighting the urge to scream and have been working on shutting my trap to keep from making things worse.

Ann how are you doing? I see your ticker shows you at 26 weeks, so I'm hoping our prayers for the baby to stick and stay put have been working.

and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Thanks Ann. Have you noticed a particular pattern to baby's movements or location? This one has her head on my left hip, her feet under my right ribs and so I get the bulk of the thumps in my ribs. Her back is generally on my left side and her hands play around my right hip. Yet, it's the right side of my sciatic nerve getting the bulk of things. It's very likely due to how I sit at the desk. It's neither lady-like, nor proper posture lol. She also dislikes when I lay on my left side sometimes and will kick me even harder. I haven't had a foot or elbow visibly poke out like I did with ds14. He had big feet even in the womb.
Apparently she likes the sound of daddy's voice too. I am usually asleep when he comes home, and he'll come in and snuggle and say hi. Baby starts kicking a lot at that point. It's not fun if I'm very cozy and snug in the bed lol.
I did the glucose test a few weeks ago and had to endure the 3 hour because I forgot about the 1 hour test and had ice cream the night before.
