Where We're Currently At

Pregnancy update for y'all:

I've done trimester updates this time around so I figured I would finish off with this third trimester. I still have 3 weeks to go but whatever. If something new develops you probably don't need to know about it.

I have been very tired still. I basically need 9 hours of sleep a night to feel normal.

Loving the Lortab. I don't want to know where I would be right now without it. Still in lots of pain without it. Almost there though.

Heartburn has gotten to the extreme stage. I'm taking a zantac twice a day and eating Tums I swear, every hour. It's killing my sleep, too.

I've developed the same digestive problems I had with Kennedy. At least it's only been the last 2 months and not the whole pregnancy. But it isn't fun. There is definitely no room left in my body.

My bikini wearing days I fear are at an end... I think I'm developing my first stretch marks. Please picture the saddest crying-face-emoticon you have ever seen. I actually never wore anything stomach revealing last season, it was always a modest swimsuit because I want to set a good example for Kennedy, but I loved knowing I could have worn one if I wanted. Sigh.... oh well.

Swelling, Swelling, Swelling. It hasn't reached the tragic level it was with Kennedy, yet, but there are some days I feel like I need the fluid pumped out of me. It's gross.

I think I have pregnancy acne now, too. Could l get less attractive? I actually don't know if it's the pregnancy or the amount of stress I've been under lately but I've been breaking out bad. Thank heavens my proactiv has kept it under control and has helped fight it quickly, but I have a new zit every day. It's extremely irritating.

This baby is extremely strong and she does not hesitate to let me know that. She is constantly moving and kicking and boxing on my bladder. I pee every 40 minutes most days because she gets going on it and it hurts!!! She also hates when things are resting on or against my belly and will push and kick where the pressure is until I move the object. Usually it's my arms. I yell at my stomach a lot. I'm already off to a good parenting start with this one.

She's named. It's not a secret but I still don't want to announce it until she's born.

I'm getting nervous for delivery. I had forgotten how awful the hospital can be and how much the first few days of recovery suck. But at least I'm prepared for it this time. I'm just ready to get this thing out.
