This baby is active and I hope this is an indication that his or her growth is on track. I go for my 20 week ultrasound tomorrow and I cannot wait to get a (blurry) glimpse at this little person. When we first saw Eloise at about 18 weeks she had the turned up nose she came out with, so I am eager to see if Baby 2 has any distinguishing features like this.
In my first pregnancy I experienced screaming heartburn and it's back with a vengeance. I've also been fighting constant indigestion, so it's safe to say I'm not super comfortable after meals. I'm still adverse to the foods I should be eating, like salad greens and vegetables, craving carbs instead, which of course lead to more heartburn. It's a vicious circle, but bread & butter or a bag of salt & vinegar chips have never tasted so good. The leg cramps I experienced with Eloise haven't started up again - and good riddance - but I am already noticing some swelling in my legs that I definitely did not have before. I haven't been great about getting exercise (I'm just so tired) but I gather it would help. Must start by going to bed earlier (and not blogging at 11:53pm...)
