Pregnancy update...30ish weeks
I cannot believe there are only ten weeks left, or eight weeks, or twelve. However many it is, it's not much. And pretty soon I'm going to have a baby to hold.
I am pretty sure I'm having a girl and not twins like I had hoped. I'm feeling just one baby pretty regularly now. This baby is still a lot and doesn't move around too much. Which is why I think it's a girl. She/he/it doesn't like to be poked either. Do you know what I mean? At night when it starts moving around, I like to press on it and poke it and stuff. It's fun for me. It's how I interact. But that will make this baby stop moving. If you put your hand anywhere near that kid, it stops. This baby sounds like it's going to be different from the others, who only want to be touched and held and wiggled all the time.
I'm getting heartburn every night, just about. So I figure if it's going to wake me up every night anyway, I may as well make the best of it. Fried jalapenos, all the way.
Okay so I can't bend over any more. Can someone please get that bulletin to my family? Thank you.
Speaking of not bending over...wiping has become complicated. How do humungo fat people wipe?
Have I told you how gross my face is? I'm like a 15 year old boy. I am covered in pimples all over my face AND neck. Pregnancy is good to me.
While we are at it..have I told you I have restless leg and a backache. Do any of you have restless leg? Yes, it's real. Yes, I have it. It's like this. You are laying in bed, almost asleep. You get this feeling that something is crawling INSIDE your leg. You HAVE to move your leg to get rid of the feeling. Sometimes my leg will just jump on it's own, but usually I am the one wiggling it. I haven't noticed it anytime other than when I want to be asleep. I know some people get it 'when they are relaxing at night in front of the TV, and I have before during pregnancy. But this time has been nap time and bedtime only. I wake up with it...so maybe it's waking me up. The back doesn't bother me often. Usually a trip to the chiropractor clears that right up. Thankfully I'm not use to back pain in pregnancy. I think I waited to long to start going.
Ready for something the pregnancy books don't tell? Certain body parts get darker. If you are squeamish, stop reading this paragraph. I get the nipples getting darker. My once, pink/peach colored nipples are almost purple/black now. They are a target for the baby...I get it. But the OTHER area that turns purple/black? Why is that? So the doctor can find it better? If the doctor doesn't know which part the baby is coming out of, don't pay the dude. (I'm not. I'm having my baby at home.)
I seem to be nesting. I can't do it all though, so what I usually do is sit on the floor and assign tasks to the children. They LOVE helping this way. They are basically my legs. We work this way for hours until I can't go on anymore. Then my back hurts for the rest of the day and I'm exhausted. I keep forgetting how hard pregnancy is and that I'm suppose to take it easy.
No cravings! What is wrong with me? I've always had cravings. I love cravings. None.
Still loving pregnancy. My favorite part is knowing there is a human being inside of me and getting to know it. Did you hear that? THERE IS A HUMAN BEING INSIDE OF ME. Have you ever thought about that? I mean it? So weird. A HUMAN BEING. WOW!
