Well, I am almost to the 3rd trimester and boy do I feel like it. This might be a crappy post but you wanted the down and dirty of pregnancy, lol.
The past few weeks I have completely lost motivation and energy. I just want to sleep for two days straight! I don't know what has come over me because I just can't get enough sleep! I haven't been feeling good either so maybe that is it. I have had an upset stomach on and off for 2-3 weeks. FUN!
I really cannot wait when to brush my teeth and not gag. Seriously...how did my gag reflex get so bad? I have come to the genius conclusion that it's worse when i am congested which is almost all the time (stupid allergies!!)
I have officially entered pregnancy mode because I wake up in the middle of the night with achy hips. Using a pillow between my legs helps but sometimes I wake up and the darn dog is sleeping on it (and it's not like she cooperates to give it back either!) I highly recommend any pregnant women invest in a pregnancy pillow or a body pillow.....makes sleep so much better....as long as your dog won't steal it!
I have had a lot of ppl ask me about my back. The accident was almost 18 months ago and I don't think it will ever be the same. I feel like I have a constant nagging in my back except for it's actual pain. I just deal with it until we can get some answers after the baby is born! After a day of cleaning or running around, I can barely move. Blake laughs at me (I would too if i didn't hurt) because I walk around like a humpback lady. Add in a big belly and I am sure it's an entertaining sight....
Yesterday, I was lucky enough to get my glucose screening done and while the drink wasn't awfully bad, I'd rather not have to do it again. Giving blood since I have been pregnant is not fun...and usually it doesn't bother me but now it freaking hurts....and looking at the blood made me want to drop to the ground and lay there for a while. I should have my results by the end of the week-- if I don't pass. My mom had gestational diabetes with both me and my brother so I am at increased risk for it. I just hope I don't have to take the 3 hour test. One hour was long enough!!!
On a positive note....baby b is an active little fellow! There are a few days when he sleeps a lot (from what i have read it is when they go through a growth spurt) and I get worried, and then the next day he is bouncing all over the place--i get all warm and gooey inside! The other day I was at a meeting and I had to pee so damn bad but I was in the middle of the table and it wasn't going to be easy to slip out. I sat there trying not to pee myself and then I felt little taps on my bladder! While it it didn't help having him dancing on my bladder, I couldnt' help but smile!!!!
