I started off this week still under the weather from that lovely flu shot.
I spent the majority of the week nursing my cold and trying to breath.
Being sick while pregnant really sucks.

Before leaving for Florida, I woke up one morning to a ridiculous pain that I can only describe as being around my bump. I knew the baby was fine because he was moving, and the pain was literally around the outer edge of my belly. I went to the doctor just to be safe, and learned that it was only round ligament pain. I felt kind of dumb, but it seriously hurt and I hadn't experienced anything like it before. He told me to just take it easy, and to get a bellyband to help support my growing bump. 

We flew to Florida to visit my family, and boy did I get lucky on the rotator.
(For those of you who don't know, the rotator is a plane that the military leases. We can fly from our base here in Italy to Baltimore for like $30).
My husband managed to get us seats in first class, which was a dream come true for this pregnant lady.
I was able to put my feet up the entire flight which was such a blessing. 
It was by far the best flight I've ever had.

I would say that this week was the beginning of the discomfort that I had yet to experience during pregnancy, and the end of my "I can't believe pregnancy is this easy" stage.

  2. I would have gone to the doctor too if I'd had a pain like that.

    I also wanted to tell you that I nominated you for the Liebster award on my blog!
