Aside from that major complaint - decreased immunity - I really have very little to gripe about so far. Which is great! I was telling my midwife a week or two ago that I think all I remember is the very last part of being pregnant before. The very miserable part. So, when I compare this experience to that, it seems amazing! I feel great! I can move and walk and get out of bed easily! I can mop the living daylights out of the kitchen floor without struggling to breathe! Of course, there is still plenty of time for all that discomfort . . . but for now - things are good.
I'm finally feeling a lot of movement, especially at night. It's almost visible from the outside - that's always a fun time, when I can show Jeff and Vicki.
There is one big topic I haven't even thought about yet - and have yet to speak about with Jeff! It just occurred to me a few days ago. Circumcision. Oh yeah, we're having a boy. I'm against it (for children). Just seems like a decision Todd should be able to make for himself. Not being observant Jews, we have no religious reason to do it. And it's not that common of a choice anymore. Apparently only about half of all baby boys are circumcised in an average hospital after birth these days. So the whole "locker room" argument is not all that convincing these days. Better see what Papa says, huh?
