Is what I feel like. It hurts to roll over in bed at night and wakes me up. My pubic bone feels like someone punched it (did she drop? Is she engaging? Any ideas?) I'm more in a waddle than a walk. I've also been having more and more Braxton Hicks. They are pretty uncomfortable. Sometimes I can continue normally through it, but sometimes it stops me in my tracks.
I am also retaining water like crazy, my hands and toes feel puffy and stiff pretty much all day long.
Steve is ready for her to be here. He's been doing things around the house like crazy. I totally think he's nesting! He'll talk to her and play Aerosmith to my belly. She reacts more to Pink Floyd and Queen. In the mornings he'll ask how his GIRLS are doing. It's really endearing and I love it.
So as of today we have 29 more days to go!! We'll know the exact time of our c-section next Friday. We are at the weekly OB appts now, and still doing NST's 2x a week. Dr. M hasn't checked me yet, is this out of the ordinary?? I'm thinking it's coming soon.
Total Weight Loss/Gain: +42lbs.. Ugh, gained 5 more in 2 weeks! Dr. M says that since my blood presssure is amazing she won't talk about my weight. The only thing I can think of since my habits haven't changed much is it's water weight.
Maternity Clothes: All the time.
Stretch marks: Yep, bottom of my belly there are a few small ones, top of my breasts and a wierd one on the top of my left butt cheek. Here we go! sheesh!
Sleep: Terrible. I wake up everytime I move. And when I wake up for the day I don't feel rested
Movement: Tons and hiccups! Love it all! She "rolls" now. My belly looks like a water bed.
Cravings/Aversions: Back to cucumbers. I'm eating a whole one to myself every other day
Gender: a beautiful gorgeous baby GIRL!
Symptoms: BACKACHES!!! Acid reflux, heartburn, this HUGE belly! lol
What I miss: Jimmy Johns, sushi, a good glass of beer
What I look forward to: Birthday is set for May 14th! That's in 4 weeks!!!
Moods: Pretty good, although by the end of the day I get really tired.
Milestones: She is just putting on the fat now! She is totally a fully made baby!
Medical concerns: Subchorionic hematoma, and baby was detached from uterus (she is refused to my uteran wall except where the hematoma still exists) Last ultrasound could not find the hematoma. It's probably still there but she's so big now they can't see it.
