"It's Normal"

I went to the doctors on Monday 10/18 for my check up and again on 10/22 because I was having some pain/pressure. A phrase I heard constantly last week was "it's normal." Did you know everything is "normal" during pregnancy? I have never had a nose bleed until I got pregnant, normal. Random stomach pains, normal. Feeling like your bladder is going to explode, normal. UTIs, normal. Starving one minute and couldn’t eat a thing the next, normal. Nauseous but still hungry, normal. Numbness, normal. Headaches, normal. Leg pain/cramps, normal. Oh and my favorite... the emotional roller coaster, normal. I am not sure how I feel about all of these wonderful "normal" symptoms of pregnancy. Can't wait to find out whats next!!

On a brighter note, I got my results back from the "testing" ultrasound and blood work, everything came back negative so she's great! Next, I have my "anatomy" ultrasound on 11/03 (I will be exactly 20 weeks!).

P.S. Unrelated to this post... I want to thank my cousin Stephanie for all the amazing maternity clothes and my sister-in-law Randi, it means so much to me!! I won't have to buy a thing (more for Stella)!! Also, a huge thanks to Shirley, whom I work with and won't read this, she has been picking me up toys and books since I told her I was pregnant. The things she has gotten me will be a huge help and savings!
