I'm now 33 weeks... 8 months! Time has flown by! And my tummy has just ballooned... or I feel like it has anyway!
So I stopped taking pictures with fruits... I haven't really wanted to buy a spaghetti squash or honey dew or pineapple. Plus taking a picture with one might just be awkward! So to normal pictures it is.
I have been exhausted! Sleeping has become difficult. Some nights I'm restless, though thankfully I have slept for the last few.
My tummy is getting HEAVY. At the end of a long day of being active, I just want to lay in the recliner, put my feet up, and take the weight off.
I've had a few hormonal break downs... I've really been good up till now. But I think the exhaustion (sleepless nights and heavy tummy) is getting to me.
Weight gain... blah. Apparently the baby goes through a growth spurt around 32 weeks. My midwife said it happens to everyone. I'll just say that the scale definitely reflected that. Oh well. Maybe I should just embrace pregnancy and yummy holiday foods... I'm bound to lose it all quick with nursing anyway, right?
Today in church, I looked down at my hands and saw that my fingers were swollen! If my ring weren't on my hand, you'd never be able to tell. My fingers got a little tingly trying to get my ring off. I think it may be time to retire the engagement ring and stick to the band... though that might need to be retired soon too! I was so hoping to escape the swelling, being that I'm due in mid-winter. No such luck.
But I'm loving seeing a midwife. The average time spent with your doctor is 6 minutes per visit. The rest is in the waiting room or with the PA. But I feel like I get to see my midwife longer. She's not ever in a hurry to leave and always glad to answer questions. I appreciate that!
Now I'm on the search for a good pediatrician!
