I am 32 weeks (well yesterday) and so its that time.. belly pic update. In these pics it makes me look like I have a bump in my stomach because of my pants the way they are.. i swear, i dont have a lumpy stomach!
today i finally broke down and bought a heating pad that i can put in the microwave to heat or in the freezer to cool (will be extremely nice when i get headaches again!)My back has been hurting me SOOO Bad lately. I would die for a great prenatal massage but they are pricey! Also, ive been starting to get acid reflux (usually just at night) where ill wake up and can feel it coming up and burning in my throat. I get really tired of waking up to it. And then there is my moodiness. I think it hit really bad this week and tom has definitely noticed. I am just irritated at EVERYTHING and it seems like its ALL the time. I dont know! im ready for that to be over. Ive started to go walking (which is amazing for those who really know me, because i NEVER exercise, what so ever) and so considering this is the first time im actually making an effort to exercise.. in my 8th month, thats pretty sad! I did order a prenatal yoga dvd which will hopefully help my back.
I had a doctors appointment on tuesday and my belly measured well (although when an intern was in there and i said 'oh well , you get to look at my big belly, the nurse said 'haha, you still dont even have that big of a belly') and the heartbeat was good (around 140.. cant remember exactly). I've gained a total of 24 lbs as well which is good. I was thinking about how weird it was for me to step on the scale and be a lot bigger than i usually am and how i wish i wouldnt gain as much weight as some.. but realized, hey as long as its between 25-35, its the norm yeah?! And, i guess it all matters on how fast you lose weight. I was talking to people who gained TONS Of weight and then lost it all within the first week after delivering so at this point, i dont care! I just think ive been thinking about it because ive never had a problem with trying to lose weight before (aka... thats why i never work out and hate it!)
well, 8 more weeks to go, and its kinda freaking me out and im getting more nervous and anxious. Hopefully everything will go smoothly and we will be ready!
