I’m actually starting to struggle being pregnant, now that I’m well into my 3rd trimester.
About a week ago, I suddenly got hit with hot flushes. I’ll be fine.. then suddenly start sweating out of nowhere! I’m not the sort that sweats, normally. In fact, I can go jogging and not really sweat a whole lot. So this is new and very annoying for me. Worst of all, my FEET get so hot I could scream!! It’s like someone stuck ‘em in a super-hot sauna and I can’t escape. Really unpleasant, and has me reduced to sitting with my feet dunked in a bucket of water whenever I’m home. Seriously, I’m the epitome of ‘barefoot and pregnant’ right now.
I’m not sure if this is a me-thing, or if it affects pregnant women in Singapore because it’s just so freakin’ hot here?? With Hunter, it was winter in Shanghai, so I had no issues.
My other problem is that Baby #2 is active…. ALL the time. So active that the doc has trouble seeing him in every single ultrasound, and of course a 3D one is out of the question, even though we tried. He can’t stop moving! His movement is strong, like Hunter’s, but the difference is that Hunter would have quiet spells and would “sleep through the night” all night. With #2, NO WAY – if I’m lucky he just wiggles all through the night. If I’m unlucky I get woken up every 30-60mins with massive kicks and thumps :( It means I get very broken sleep and I am crazy worried – this sounds like a very active baby that does NOT sleep through the night easily, does it not??!??!?
Baby #2, at 32 weeks… kicking up a storm
Boy, we are in for a wild ride once he’s out…
