I've started throwing up again which is annoying, also trying to keep my blood pressure under control. I don't feel prepared for her to be here yet so I need to get organized, I need more energy.
+1 to baby moving around a lot and feeling very pregnant! It's exciting, yet nerve wracking that we'll see our babies soon. I have a busy month this month (DH's bday and all our baby-related classes are this month), so the days will fly by!Stuck in box:We've got all of our classes and the hospital tour in the back half of this month too. Then she can come whenever she wants!
I guess I’m doing as best as I can expect at this point. I got my BFF to help out when my parents are out of town so that’s one less stressor. Baby is crazy active and loves to remind me how big he is getting by trying to stick his foot through my stomach. Very uncomfortable. Still have a fair amount of stuff to do but i’m not going to stress about it. It will all eventually get done. I’ve been getting a lot of back spasms these last few days and there really isn’t much I can do about it. I’m sitting with a heating pad now but otherwise I just need to deal with it. Fun times.
Appointment and NST went well yesterday. I found it interesting that the nurse was able to see the baby kicking & moving my belly while she was using the doppler I really couldn't feel what she was seeing. She had me sit up a little & watch and I could definitely see the movement but still not feel it. Most of the movement I feel is down low while this was happening up high. Just another testament to how different each and every pregnancy/woman is.
@olitwinturbosnprincess would protein shakes help? Some of them are not as terrible as they could be
Random thought I had as I was trying to get comfortable in bed for the 419th time last night... Rolling over with this big belly is a lot like when I first learned how to maneuver a 3 point turnaround in the car. I always needed at least 5 attempts before I got it right. It takes me about as many grunts/scooches/tugs to roll over these days. I can almost picture myself as a giant SUV trying to turn around in a little alley.Or I could simply be goofy from lack of sleep and baby brain.
@mamaof5already That sounds like something I could manage! Where do you get them?
@clc515 Yes! My husband is entirely too entertained by my mobility struggles.
