totally a bout de souffle over here

Weird pregnancy symptom of the moment: breathlessness. When I'm walking, talking, laying down, lifting anything. It's totally normal and due to hormones swelling the respiratory tract. Later on, it's from the baby pushing up into the diaphragm toward the lungs. Not a big deal, but suddenly taking a walk in the hood and getting groceries feels like a much more monumental task than normal.

Baby's kicking and somersaulting like crazy every day and it's pretty awesome. Chris got to feel a kick from the outside last week, too. Counting down the minutes to our OB apppointment on Thursday, when we'll get the detailed ultrasound results.
