I think I cursed myself when I said I'm starting to sleep better in my last pregnancy update. I haven't been able to sleep at all tonight! It wasn't heartburn, but arm pain. No matter how I laid, my right arm kept hurting more and more, like a throbbing ache. I looked it up and I think it's pregnancy induced carpal tunnel. Add that to the giant list of pregnancy symptoms I've had so far. I think I'm going for a record.
So anyway, I took a pain killer, which worked but made me nauseous. I figured I'd do my Thankful Thursday post while waiting for my stomach to settle enough to go back to sleep. Sometimes, like today, I feel like skipping it and just doing a giant complaining post. But honestly, it always cheers me up to think positive, and ranting never really helps me.
...for pain killer! Even though it made me feel sick. That arm pain was just unbearable!
...that Kaylee sleeps through the night every night now. When she does wake up, she just comes in as quietly as a mouse, snuggles up to me, and goes right back to sleep. Melts my heart!!
...that Brynna is so active. I never get a chance to worry about her because she's never still for long. It keeps me awake sometimes but it's worth it. I remember worrying for hours when Kaylee wouldn't move.
...that we're going to have 2 little girls!!! Don't get me wrong, I'd have LOVED a little boy, but I think there is something special about the sister bond. And although I really wanted to have our kids with a smaller age gap, I think they will still be close. Kay is sooo excited to be a big sister. :)
...that I'm confident as a parent now. I remember when I was pregnant with Kay and when she was a baby, I was so defensive of our parenting decisions. I felt like everyone was judging us because we were young. Now I just really don't care anymore what other people think. Anyone who judges parents just based on age is dumb anyway.
