Not a lot of new things to report lately. Diana's entering 18 weeks. She's already having a lot of discomfort issues when it comes to sleeping or even sitting in the car. Worse, whatever allergen is annoying people right now (it's bothering me too, even with the cool weather), is really working her over and making it impossible for her to breathe. She can't take her "normal" prescription nasal spray, so she's a bit miserable at times. She has scary painful sneezes now and then that she compares to hernia surgery pains. You can see why a C-section is the obvious correct choice.
Her bump growth is starting to ramp up a bit too. For most of the first trimester, I think she was mostly bloated on and off, but now her belly is getting hard and tight. I can't even imagine what that's like.
We've still got two weeks before the next ultrasound, where hopefully we'll see which parts the baby has.
