Holy crap, people, I’m having a baby!
It all seemed so far away, but now it’s breathing down my neck. I’ve started going to the doctor every 2 weeks which goes a little something like this:
1. Pee in a cup
2. Get weighed
3. Have blood pressure taken
4. Hear The Baby’s heartbeat
5. Have uterus measured
6. Go home
I’m also starting to get to the super fun part of the pregnancy where stairs exhaust me, bending over is awkward, my back is killing me and I haven’t worn shoes with laces for weeks now because my belly gets in the way while I’m trying to tie them and it’s just not worth it!
I’ll admit I was feeling a little pleased with myself over the fact that people kept asking if I noticed the foot swelling etc and I was all “no not at all!” and then yesterday I went to put on a pair of shoes I wear all the time and they’re getting kind of tight, as are my rings. So let’s go ahead and scratch that one off the list of things to look forward to, because YAY it’s here!
I know this is incredibly whiny but I wanted to get it all down somewhere because I’ve heard that after giving birth your hormones will make you completely forget any pregnancy discomfort you may have felt in order to encourage you to go through it again. I just want to make sure that afterward when someone asks me what it was like to be pregnant that I don’t lie to them and tell them it’s rainbows and puppies and full of awesome.
Not that it doesn’t have it’s good points. I mean the fact that it will result in an actual baby is cool. And sometimes it’s fun to sit and watch him move around and feel him move around (and sometimes I want for him to go back to sleep because it’s also really distracting while I’m trying to read or something).
So I think that about sums it up! I’ve been hoping I could come up with something more interesting to wring about…. but I couldn’t!
