24 weeks

I had the worse dream in the world this week.

You know, the kind of gut-wrenching dream nightmare that wakes you from your sleep in the middle of the night.  You awaken to a wet face, soaked in tears, your face stuck in a grimace.  It was one of those.


……..We (husband and I) were randomly riding around in a cab when the cab driver suddenly stopped and kicked us out in the middle of nowhere.  I was pissed in the dream and confronted him with a hysterical fithis response was a swift kick to my pregnant belly.  I immediately keeled over and screamed in pain “My baby! My baby!”  

We were then rushed to the hospital to have an ultrasound and I immediately asked the tech if she (our baby-whom we don’t know the sex of) was okay.  His response “Well, he’s not a she, and I don’t see a heartbeat…let me get the doctor”………..

The dream ended like that and I never found out if baby was okay.  I told you.  It was horrid.

The only sense I can make out of it is that Maple, our min-pin was sleeping next to my belly when I awoke.  Perhaps her tiny foot jabbed my stomach while I slept and spurred the crazy chain of events.  Who knows?  All I knew is that I didn’t want to go back to sleep until I felt baby move.

I also got sick again this week as the random bouts of morning sickness continued to linger around.  Let me tell you, morning sickness is not fun, even if it only lasts for an hour or so.  I am so tired of saying goodbye to the breakfast I just ate and am hoping for some relief.  I don’t know how I would deal if I were one of those unfortunate woman who are sick 24/7–it would make me miserable.

In other news, baby has been moving up storm!  I’m not quite sure what it’s doing, but lately it feels like he or she is performing a floor routine inside me.  One second I’ll feel kicks to the bladder, the next I’ll feel squirming in my upper right or left side.  It’s an awkward feeling, but I’ll take it!  I love having a constant reminder that baby is active and doing well and feeling the random jabs does that.

      Thank you so much for the kind words! How exciting to be planning your wedding! Thank you so much for the sour food tip! I actually have noticed that I when my sickness was at its worse I would crave sour things. Fortunately, it’s eased up and is now limited to occasional mornings.
