Taken after attending St. Luke’s Mom 101 and Breastfeeding 101. That was a really fun and informative event especially for first time moms like me. I will digest what I’ve learned and hope to share it here in the following weeks.
Just three days ago, I felt baby’s kick. Not exactly baby’s first kick because I have been feeling it for the past couple of days BUT it’s the first time Daddy Darlan felt it in my tummy too! For the past couple of days, I’ve been trying to grab his hand and placed in my tummy in the hopes that he’s going to feel it too but most of the time either baby would stop kicking or my B’s too sleepy to feel it in his hand. But couple of nights ago was different! Baby kicked once and Daddy already felt it! I’m just so happy to be sharing my belly fluttering aka baby kicking with my B!!!
Elated to share my baby kicking with my B!!!
Swelling. I cannot wear my engagement and wedding rings anymore as well as my closed shoes.
Bloating. Although I feel hungry, my stomach feels full in a not so nice way.
Breast engorgement. Breast pain. Tender breasts. ‘Nuff said!
Backache. This affects my lower back, but the pain is already traveling upwards.
White discharge. Since I could not find a longer and wider pantyliner, I’ve been layering my trusted liner.
Abdominal / pelvic cramping. Feels like cramps during PMS.
Leg cramps and insomnia are still some of the persisting symptoms.
