My pregnancy is dwindling down. I, like my doctor, am very surprised I haven’t delivered our li’l miracle yet. I was 2cm for at least a week, then 3cm for 3 consecutive weeks, and last Wednesday the dr said I was 3+ but not quiet 4.
Needless to say, physically I’m ready to have this baby! Emotionally, I think I’m ready. I’m definitely going to miss being pregnant. I have enjoyed (almost) every minute of it. Despite the constant vomiting during the first 12 weeks, and my obvious discomfort the past few weeks, I have loved it. It’s just so amazing.
There are some things that are not so amazing, that I don’t quiet understand, and wish I knew about sooner, however….
Well, let me just share a li’l list of those things which may include too much information…
*Any time in the sun has left my face with freckles! I’ve never had freckles before!
*I was totally not prepared for the never-ending discharge. Seriously, it’s annoying!
*Nipples change color. Umm yeah, will they go back to pre-prego color? And they itch, a lot!
*I have hated pineapple for 24 years. Alas, suddenly I can’t eat enough of it!
*It takes sooo much effort to get in and out of bed. And, since I have to pee (something I’d heard about, but was totally underestimating the amount of) at least 3 times a night it has become my biggest challenge. And about the time I finally get comfortable, my hip falls asleep and I have to forcefully roll myself to the other side.
*My legs are huge! I’ve always had big thighs and hips, but c’mon!
*When God chooses to bless us with another pregnancy I will remember to take stock in Charmin, Tums, panty liners,and Edy’s.
*I always loved Sprite, but suddenly am not a fan at all! It’s too… I’m not sure what. Sierra Mist now seems to be the fav, and I’m not a Pepsi product fan usually.
… And for now, that’s all my pregnant brain will remember. I suppose you could say that’s another thing – the lack of memory!
Anyway, I must go nest. Hopefully SOON I’ll be able to introduce my blessed baby girl with you!!!
