I am soon entering the third trimester and becoming more eager to hold my baby girl in my arms, even though I know how important it is for her to continue developing inside my womb. By this stage there is little chance for the baby to survive outside of the womb due to lungs not being strong enough. So I just pray she stays in a while longer.
Symtoms this week:
I am starting to feel the Braxton hicks contractions more intensively now, which is not alarming at all due to the uterus preparing and training for labor. I am also feeling a lot of pressure on my ribs at the moment and I am trying to just breath through the uncomfortableness.
At this stage she is very active and has her own diurnal rhythm. She is in there training her mobility as well as preparing for life outside the womb. I can feel her catch the hiccups at times which I find so adorable.
It's amazing how connected I/we feel to her already and how she responds to us with a kick or movement. I am enjoying this time so so so much and feel so honored to be her mother.
