I had my appointment this past Thursday and all is well.
He is measuring nicely and the heart beat is strong.
My previous visit found me with a 5# gain in a month. This visit found me with no weight gain in 3 weeks. And while it sounds great, I am scratching my head because I feel and look bigger. Oh well. And I am left with a 10# window in the next 7+ weeks as to not surpass my weight gain with the other two.
I am on a mission!
The regular 3rd trimester stuff is upon me~ fatigue, leg cramps, awkwardness, and weeping.
While a lot of times, I try to get in some squatting while around the house and yard, most of the other times I have resorted to requesting that my children pick up stuff for me that I have dropped.
And like the whole fat belly and drooping pants thing, why is that pregnant women with big bellies not suitable for bending seem to drop stuff a LOT?!!!
I watched Grey's and ER off my DVR from Thursday and now wonder if I can bear the last 2 episodes of their seasons in my weepy state. I have decided that I must, however I will be watching them alone and with much tissue in hand!
While at the grocery store the other day, I felt the force calling me to the ice cream section. Initially it was for my husband, but I pulled a little treat out for myself as well. Ben and Jerry's Chocolate with Brownie Chunks! The small container says it has 4 servings in it. I made it last for 3 and feel pretty good about it!
It certainly makes my weepiness better!
