Comments: I called the OB yesterday at my husband’s urging. She said the cramps could be due to my uterus expanding, which I knew, but also dehydration, which I didn’t know. I’m really bad at drinking enough, ever. So I’ve stepped it up and I’m making sure I get enough water now. I downloaded a free app to track it, called Water Logged. I’ve also been trying to read and sing to the baby every night now, since it can hear me now. I’m still very tired though, all the time. It’s frustrating. But I can’t stop being excited about this Friday’s ultrasound! Two more days!!!
