It was so great to see her little face in our ultrasound last week! She looks prettyyyyyy cozy right up against my bladder (mama is feeling it πŸš½lol)

Getting used to this body- I keep banging my hips into the corner of our island πŸ€·πŸΌ‍♀️ The bloating has been crazy πŸŽˆ

Feeling: REMARKABLY better! I'm human again! Occasional moments of nausea but overall more mental clarity and energy! ⚡️

Walking/stretching helps but I wake Rich up nearly every hour with my spastic limbs πŸ€¦πŸΌ‍♀️
