I have definitely decided that getting the compliment of You’re Glowing!!! is one of the most awkward things ever. Um, thanks, I feel like I am sweating.
That being said, even though I really am just hot and sweaty because it’s summer and I’m pregnant and working in a non-air conditioned restaurant, it’s kind of fun to think I’m glowing! since people say it to me on a daily basis lately. So cheese-ball. LOL
I weighed 169.5# this morning (up 2.5# from last week, up 8.5# overall). Hm…I wonder if that has anything to do with the box of White Cheddar Cheez-its I devoured in two sittings or the numerous bowls of ice cream before bed this week? Oops. Last Saturday night was the first time I’ve noticed my legs/feet swelling too, so I think it’s time to take a closer look at my diet again and try really hard to cut back on sodium. There’s just no way around being on my feet for 6-8 hours at a time at work, and I really hope that the swelling doesn’t get too much worse for now – I still have 18 weeks to go!
I’m definitely feeling the kiddo move and kick more often. In fact, today is probably the most activity I’ve felt yet! I’m hoping that C can feel it on the outside soon as well – I think he’s kind of bummed that he hasn’t felt anything yet. He’ll randomly lay his hand on my belly for a minute or two and say, “nope, nothing.” Patience honey… 🙂
As far as my body goes, I’m definitely feeling more pregnant. My belly has really popped, and generally people have no compunctions about asking me how far along I am, so I must look pretty obviously pregnant. I burp constantly. Non-stop. It’s actually kind of ridiculous how gassy I am (though thankfully it’s mostly of the burping variety!). I also broke down and bought a new bra this week – it seems I’m in a weird 36D/38D mid range right now, but that means my 36B/C bras were definitely not cutting it anymore. I’m guessing I’ll have to go back in a couple months for another new size though… yikes. They’re definitely growing!
