I shouldn’t even post that these updates are late. It should just be a given. I did take a belly picture this week though, so I’ve got that going for me.
So, the pregnancy insomnia is back. It is possibly the meanest of all pregnancy symptoms. You are already exhausted even when you sleep well. Although “well” usually means up every 2 hours to pee or change positions because your back and legs ache so badly. I’m not complaining, mind you, but I am simply stating that you’d think your brain would let you shut down for a couple hours to let you rest from the overall insanity that is having less than nine weeks left. WHOA!
The swelling has also started. Everything below the belly is swelling. The YOU KNOW area, as well as the new hemorrhoids, and the feet (slightly, if I’ve been on them for a while). I’ve had a hemorrhoid since high school. It comes and goes. I’ve even been to a Proctologist and everything. Now, along with a bit of constipation, it’s getting a bit…. irritated down there. I’ve started back on prunes to at least alleviate the going pain. I have a feeling this problem will only be getting worse though.
Other than all of those things above, which are super normal, I am feeling pretty good. Everyone keeps telling me I look small still. Woo! I certainly don’t feel it when trying to get off the couch or roll out of bed. haha
Here is the belly! My shirt is actually green, but my phone needs to be put out of it’s misery….
