Here is a bump pic by the Arenal Volcano.
As you may have seen a couple posts back, we found out during Week 22 that we are having a girl and had a lot of fun with the gender reveal party that we threw for our family and friends.
I'm feeling like a beached whale lately. I can't imagine getting much bigger than this, but I know it's going to happen, haha.
Other than my expanding girth, I haven't felt too different from past weeks. I have started to get lower back pain if I don't focus on my posture when I'm sitting or if I've been standing for too long. It's annoying, but luckily hasn't been too bad. I have gotten heart palpitations on occasion too, which is completely normal for pregnancy, but kind of scary to experience. Another interesting thing is that I've been able to sleep through the night the past few weeks without having to get up to go to the bathroom. I thought it got worse as the pregnancy went on (and maybe it will) but for now I am enjoying sleeping better.
On a possible TMI note, my chest has like doubled in size from pre-pregnancy ~ I swear. It's ridiculous. I had a couple button up tops that were flowy enough to fit over my belly, but unexpectedly I could not wear them because they were too tight in the chest area. I never in a million years thought that I would ever have that problem! Haha :-p
I have another doctor appointment today so I will report back on how that goes. I have been really good about keeping my weight in check this month (and cutting back on the sweets, hehe) so hopefully everything will look good!
