I am just in a bad mood this week. Saturday was my birthday. Woo. Happy birthday to me. I was stuck at home on the couch with my leg propped up in a heating pad because my leg was so cramped up I couldn't walk. And Tim was gone. And my round ligament pain gets so bad at work sometimes that I can hardly stand it. Anyways, woohoo, I'm 23 years old, another year older. Last week I felt great, this week I have thrown up a ton, its like I'm heading backwards. Very frustrating. I stopped reading the weekly baby updates online because it is so irritating reading things like "you probably feel great right now" and "enjoy this time, it is the best time during the whole pregnancy!!". Well. If that is the case, I'm not excited because that means its going to get worse again as I keep getting further along!
Well, here are my journal questions. No picture this week. Just not feeling it.
How far along? 22 weeks and two days
Baby Size: Big, and getting bigger.
Total weight gain/loss: Still 151. No gain! Doc says I need to step up the eating.
Maternity clothes? Yupp
Stretch marks? Not yet.
Sleep: Glad I have a 50 pound dog to cuddle with at night because while Tim is gone, the bed is just to empty. Same answer as last week, and still as true.
Best moment this week: Having my mom feel the baby move!
Miss Anything? Tim. That will probably be the answer for the next 9 weeks.
Movement: He moves all the time!
Food cravings: Peaches. And caffeine, but doc said no more caffeine.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Hasn’t been a very good week :(
Have you started to show yet: Definitely got a bump!
Gender: My Sweet Baby BOY!!!
Labor Signs: Still with the RLP. And I get bad cramps, Braxton Hicks I believe.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Mood? Emotional. And I’ve just been in a generally bad mood this week.
Looking forward to: Tim gets home tomorrow night. Thank goodness. I really wish that someone would just come finish painting the nursery for me. I am way too tired and worn out to do it myself. But the bedding fabrics did come in so I should get started soon!!
