As much as I hate to complain about anything related to the little miracle inside me...Ouch, the back. There are days that no matter what I do I can never get relief, even in my bed or relaxing on the couch. Also the calves and ankles...what in the world? I think I stood way too long one day and had so much discomfort/pain by the evening I had to sit and prop them up. They felt swollen (didn't really look like it though). I thought it was too early for all that! I'm so in for it. Otherwise, I feel pretty good! I'm loving that I can eat whatever and I haven't gotten sick in weeks. Bad thing is I'm beginning to crave soda. The whole first half of my pregnancy I never cared for it. Now is a different story... along with a lot of sweets, eek. Not to worry I still dig the healthy stuff as well. I have my 24 week check up on Friday so I will know how much weight I have gained then. I'm pretty sure I'm not up about 3lbs total. We'll see how accurate I am though!
