Ok, 21 weeks. Four more to go until I reach viablility. Well, technically three more, but 25 weeks sounds better to me.
Went to a baby shower today for one of my friends who got knocked up accidentaly. Must be nice.
It was nice, and the whole time, I was imagining that it was my baby shower. I wish I were over 30 weeks. I wish it was almost time!
Things that are in this week:
Cocoa butter: Lots of it. I can feel the stretching. I just don’t want to see any evidence.
Baby kicks: Yes, he is kicking. And I spend the whole day waiting for it.
Constipation: I had the worst gas pains of my life this morning. I thought I was in labor! But being the neurotic Rn that I am, I checked myself, drank a gallon of water, took simethicone and put in a glycerin suppository. 30 minutes later, victory.
Hunger: Self explanatory.
Peaches: Wow. I mean, they are so delicious, and juicy and sweet and …….God, I’ve got to go to the store right after I finish this!
Swelling: I keep trying to tell myself it’s just the heat.
Things that are out:
Abdominal muscles: I used to have pretty strong ones. Now………
Italianv: Gives me waaaaaaay too much heartburn.
My wedding ring: My fingers are swollen. It is now on a chain around my neck.
Sex: Again. I am working on it.
A full night’s sleep: My bladder feels the need to empty every 3 hours.
My fat jeans: (God that’s depressing.)
Well, that’s all for now! Stay tuned for next week’s adventures!
