Today was the glucose screening appointment. Having seen many of my friends post pictures complaining about the little orange bottle, I knew what I was in for.
It wasn't that bad, seriously.
Reminds me of the time I had my HSG done, don't believe what you read online. OH, the women were so dramatic about it, horrible pain they said, take pain pills they said!
It was painful when my tube was blocked and the doctor kept trying to push more dye into an area that was obviously not welcoming.
It hurt, really badly, but the pain was gone as soon as the dye was gone.
Same thing with all this drink mess, it was gross while I drank it, I burped later and that was...gross.
That's not me giving you the nice bloggy side of my experience, that's me telling the truth!
They rushed me through my OB appointment, baby's heart rate was 144 and beating loud and clear for momma to hear! I talked to my doctor about the awful acid reflux I've been having, he suggested taking a liquid if it became worse. Nothing I can't handle!
I also read chewing gum after eating will help, so I'm trying it this week.
I am at the 6 month mark and I have to be honest, I just now am feeling pregnant and realizing what all is happening to my body.
Things. are. changing.
It used to take me 20 mins to walk our hilly 2 mile neighborhood, it now takes me an hour. If round ligament pain starts up (now those hurt!) I have to breathe a little and rotate my hips before continuing.
My clothes are much more snug, as soon as I get home I step into R's XL gym shorts. It's sad when your own pajamas don't fit anymore! My dad brought home a 3XL sweatshirt from the college bookstore, it is huge! Definitely made for one of our football linebackers, but it is perfect for this pregnant lady!
My back is much more achy by the end of the day, nothing seems to fix that while at work, but I put my feet up as soon as I get home. Last Friday, when I subbed, I got home and my feet were as big as balloons!!!! I think it had something to do with the teacher's chair? Or the rain? Or maybe because that was the same day I hit the 6 month mark so my body decided to show me how pregnant I really am.
I feel so beautiful, especially after a shower and fresh lotion on my belly, I just look so darn cute!
Yes, I just said that.
Nothing wrong with a woman feeling feminine is there?!
I know, I know, come 9 months I'll be singing a different tune, but for now I am enjoying every minute of this experience.
