So I am actually 27 weeks today, but I am going to talk about my experience from last week. In week 26 I can actually start to tell that I am nearing the end of my second trimester. I am getting a little more tired, and I've heard a lot of women say that towards the end of the second trimester, and the beginning of the third trimester, you start to feel tired again. Of course it varies with people, but the percentage of women who do experience fatigue again at the end is high.
My round ligament pain is getting worse as the weeks go by, it just lasts longer, and it comes a lot more. Before, I would only feel the pain when I'd move around in bed a certain way, but now I feel it no matter what I'm doing. But like I said in my vlog, it definitely helps when I put a couple of pillows in between my legs when I am laying down. It relieves the pain a lot.
Rylee has the hiccups often, it is the strangest feeling. It feels kind of like a pulse in my stomach, kind of like a heartbeat. But it's way slower than a baby's heartbeat. Also, my heartburn is random. I will have it really bad on some days, and on other days I won't have it at all. I still take tums when I need to, and generally they do help, but sometimes they only work for a very short time. I am so excited, we only have 13 weeks left, and time is flying so fast. Thank you everyone for all the support!!
