20 weeks! Halfway to the finish line!!

I can not believe how far we've come. I am 20 weeks! I NEVER thought I would make it this far and if I could physically do it I would jump up and down.
Other than being amazingly happy about our halfway mark I hate to report I am still puking and having a lot of nausea. It has gotten a lot better but man oh man I really wish it would go the hell away already. I also have a horrible pelvic problem. It started when I first got pregnant around 6 weeks. I had this awful pulled-muscle feeling in... well... my vajayjay area lol. Come to find out it was a condition called PSD or Pubis Symphasis Dysfunction and would only get worse because nothing was done about it. So as the days go on it hurts more and more to sit, stand, walk, lay down... pretty much do anything. My pelvis is separated and the ligaments that hold everything together are mush. I have very little support and the bigger the baby gets the worse the pain will be. I'm hoping to find a way to manage it on my own since the drs don't want to listen or be bothered about this. Thank God I have my WTE girls and have found that I am not the only one who has had this before. I knew I wasn't crazy before but thankfully I have some back up to this haha.
I am up about 2 or 3 lbs which I think is great for 20 weeks. It never stays up or down because the vomiting makes it flucuate alot. But for now we are doing good about that. the kicks and moves have gotten stronger and much more frequent. I am loveing every single second of feeling her move!! It's just amazing and they even startle me when she gives me a really good pop! It's so much fun to try and figure out what is her arm, feet, head, etc. I just really can't wait till her daddy can feel her. We have to work on that lol. All in all things are fantastic and I couldn't be more thankful for my little girl :)

  1. Been looking for you too! My WTE has locked you, me and everyone else out! I'll try to get to you and PM you my email.

    Glad all is going well! A couple suggestions for you - acupuncture worked wonders on my nausea. It was truly amazing, and it has helped with the other aches and pains of pregnancy. I have minor PSD and my doctor recommended buying the "Prenatal Cradle" maternity belt. It was recommended to her by another patient who happened to also be a physical therapist.

    Take care of you and that beautiful little girl you've got growing!
