Total Weight Gain: 149 lbs = 35.5 lbs! Seriously, bedrest and my chocolate cravings are BAD. All of you under 20 lb weight gainers make me JEALOUS. I am HUGE.
Maternity clothes: My closet is insane...between my original clothes, the maternity wear I inherited, and the things I've bought...it's insane in there.
Sleep: Procardia makes me so, so sleepy. And if I have to run errands (don't worry, I use a wheelchair/scooter in stores), I get sooooo exhausted so fast!
Sex: This week I have been told NO LESS than 5 times that I am having a boy. Colliwog thinks somehow there is a twin hiding in there, and only 1 vote for a girl. Apparently, other than my family, the feeling is boy all the way. And can we not talk about sex?
Symptoms: Heartburn and acid reflux have kicked in with a VENGEANCE. VERY vivid dreams. Sciatic and back pain.. More colostrum. Very short of breath. I HATE the stairs in my house.
What I miss: Sleeping on my belly. As getting cozy gets more difficult, I miss that option more and more. Sex. Being able to clean, etc. Working on finding projects I can do sitting.
What I look forward to: Belly button poppage (it's getting quite shallow!) Blog meet up (I get to be social!). Baby shower in 1 month.
Moods: It's been another roller coaster of emotions this week, which leaves me exhausted and unable to even complete things I could normally do sitting down. I think I'm pouting. Haven't read blogs all week (sorry gang!). Actually, moping might be more accurate. Must remedy that.
|30 weeks. No bra, so the BBs are sitting right|
on top of my belly. LMAO.
Medical Concerns: Hypothyroid, anxiety, migraines, bursitis, PTL (ie Helga is a cranky bitch), incompetent cervix. Ready for the list? Syn.throid 50 mcg, Zo.loft 100 mg, Iron, D3, B12, Vitamin C, Folic acid, stool softeners. Flexeril a bit longer, Tylenol 3 for the migraines, Procardia 20 mg 3x/day, Unisom so I sleep a bit better.
Weekly Wisdom: Trust my instincts. Real clothes make me feel like less of a bum, so wear them even if doing NOTHING all day.
Best moment this week: Good laugh over the fact that Hubby and Colliwog bought me a bell to ring, LOL.
Worst moment this week: Hospital, fear (again), frustration at financial losses and maternity leave losses, feeling helpless, getting glared at in the grocery store by a woman with an oxygen tube pushing a cart while I sat in the scooter. I just ignored her. But still.
