I am almost 23 weeks pregnant. I still can’t believe I can say that. I wake up in the morning sometimes and am not sure if I am still pregnant. I look down and still am, all good. I also can’t believe that I am nearing the third trimester. Only about five weeks until the third trimester. Viability is in about a week too. Wow. Even though I’m almost at viability I want the little man to stay in there as long as possible.
Tomorrow I have another ob appointment. I’m always proud of myself when I make it to another ob appointment and through all the waiting. Hopefully all is still well in there. This is the first ob appointment that I’m going with some concerns/questions so that makes me a little nervous. I guess it’s good that I’m hopefully finally going to meet my ob.
What are my concerns/questions? Well the first one deals with movement. The other week I wrote about how I was nervous because I didn’t feel much movement for a while and I was starting to freak. He finally kicked me and I felt better. Then a few days later I had a taco salad for lunch and he went nuts kicking me. He kicked me a lot that night/evening and the kicks were even more kick like. I guess he was just sleeping and growing so he could kick me harder. I want to ask if this is ok, because I feel like he is in one of his quiet phases again. I get one or two kicks or so (or what I feel) a day and then not much. Though sometimes I think I feel movement and shifting a little more than kicking. Hopefully he will be back to kicking me again. I’m just wondering what is normal and when I should be concerned. I tend to get neurotic about this and freak that he isn’t kicking me enough.
My second question is about urine. First off I feel like I live in the bathroom and it’s only increasing. I have also started leaking urine, which I read on the net is normal. I go to the bathroom and then less than an hour later I feel it leaking. It gets in the crotch of my pants and it’s not fun. I have started wearing a pad and it’s better, but I just want to make sure all is ok with that.
Lastly, acne. Ever since I got pregnant I majorly broke out all over my shoulders and my back. I had acne a lot as a teen and I guess that makes me more prone to it or something. It’s getting a little better, but I’m still not comfortable wearing tanks or letting a lot of that skin show, which stinks because warm weather is coming. I want to know what products I can use that won’t mess with my hormones or whatever. I had some re.tin a, but I’m not sure if I am able to use that.
So hopefully they will tell me everything is normal and ok. I’m the most nervous about the movement, but hopefully all is ok with little man. I will update when I know more.
