Movement :: Still feeling 'waves' every-so-often. It started overnight on September 24.

I get a bit winded climbing stairs all day at work - my classroom is on the second floor (I have to climb a third flight of stairs to go to the bathroom!) and I spend all day on my feet.
I also got my first stretch mark on my belly this week. It's tiny - let's hope it stays that way!
