I may seem to have been absent from blog land for a while -- not posting or commenting as much as I usually do. But I have been here, reading and keeping up with everyone. I have just been trying to keep my fingers away from the keyboard because of this very lovely pregnancy symptom that I have, carpal tunnel syndrome, and lucky me, I have it in both hands!! Just about every use of my hands and fingers causes pain, tingling and numbness. Holding the phone up to my ear, brushing my teeth, holding a fork, texting, holding a book, etc. If it involves using my hands, it is no fun! I have even had a hard time sleeping at night because it is hard to find a position that's not on my back that keeps my arms and hands in a neutral position and doesn't cause excruciating pain.
Whine, whine, whine...I know. While this is definitely not a fun preggo symptom, I know that it is temporary and I mean it when I say, that it is worth it. And I don't say that because I look like a total hottie in these snazzy wrist braces. It is proof that I am still pregnant (in the oppressive Georgia heat) and that Pooh is growing stronger by the day. I am 33 weeks and 6 days pregnant today and I am so thankful for that. Only three more progesterone shots and five more NST's to go. It is pretty mind blowing when I stop and think about how far we have come and how close we are to meeting our sweet girl face to face. The countdown continues.
