Heartburn. That about sums it up. This kid better have a full head of hair.
I still have no desire to eat whatsoever. I have realized that it is not so much that I have lost my appetite, because I still get hungry, as it is that eating is just not satisfying. I eat to make the hunger go away. But usually my stomach feels heavy and upset after I eat. But if I don't eat, HEARTBURN. So its a trade off.
I think this week has really brought on a new level of immobility. It has suddenly become impossible to get off the couch without help. And turning over at night risks pulling a muscle. Bug must really be packing on the pounds cuz my belly suddenly got reeeally heavy (and is obviously stretching since my muscles continue to rip as I type. I thought I was done with that after the first two pregnancies!)
It's close to the end folks. This rapid decline in comfort and mobility serve as a constant reminder. It has to get this bad before the baby comes, but it means it's coming soon. Knowing my history, I am estimating about 2 1/2 more weeks of this wretchedness til Bug joins us (Mom, I'm thinking April 2-4th-ish, so maybe a birthday twin for you?)
On the bright side, I cannot believe what a little sun exposure has done for my mood! I must have been severely lacking in Vit D, but I am soaking up as much as I can these days! The sunshine has been an incredible medicine for any crabbiness that tries to take over. I love love love it! Oh, and I am also happy to say that my crampiness and back pain has subsided!
Craving of the week: water, but only because it's the only thing that doesn't give me heartburn... most of the time.
