Only six more weeks until Baby Walsh is due! Things are going well. Our midwife says the heartbeat is strong and baby is still active alllll the time. My heartburn has returned, enough so that I feel nauseous most of the evening. I'm definitely waking up more at night, even if it's just to turn over (it takes so much more effort to turn over!) My Braxton-Hicks contractions have almost completely disappeared. Our midwife explained that I could have been having them because of dehydration. She suggested that I up my water intake or drink a glass of water whenever I start to have the B-H cont. It worked! I thought that I was drinking a lot of water before, but apparently I needed to drink more.
