How I’m feeling: Working out regularly (light weights and cardio). Lots of walking. Sciatic nerve pain is on and off. The bump looks the same as last week. I’ve been rocking leggings, my regular jeans with the Bella Band and my 2 new pairs of low rise maternity jeans from Old Navy. I am swelling from the knees down and have a lovely array of veins sprawled out on the back of my thighs. I look like a road map. I regularly whine about this. My feet and toes have been going numb. When I told my Dr this, she told me that I need to wear compression pantyhose *my jaw hits the floor* . All I think of is that scene in Mrs. Doubtfire where Robin Williams is riding on the bus and his old lady tights start rolling down to expose his furry knee to the bus driver. From what I understand about these tights, they’re extremely uncomfortable and difficult to get on & off. Should make for some interesting situations considering I pee every 3 seconds. On the bright side, it may act like I’m wearing 1/2 body Spanx!
New and exciting: Baby is still very active at night. I get excited when I get into bed because I know I’ll feel the little bugger squirming around. It goes crazy about 10 minutes after I eat chocolate or spicy food. I bought the Preggle Pillow and loooove it (see yesterday’s post). My hair is crazy thick lately too!
Weird Stuff: Besides the crazy old lady tights that I’ll be wearing soon, not too much going on except the fact that “the girls” have taken on a new life of their own. They are redonkulous. Like, I have 3 heads. Ew.
Cravings: Lots of the same stuff. Tomato sauce, vinegar, frozen yogurt or sorbet , ice cold milk in Cheerios 😀
Aversions: asparagus (still), ice water (still), grilled or dry or plain chicken.
Baby is the size of:
- It’s yawning, hiccuping, sucking and swallowing?
- And it’s twisting, rolling, punching and kicking, too
