How I’m Feeling:
I’m doing pretty well. I’ve been exhausted lately because my children, mainly Lucas, has felt that 430/530am is an appropriate wake up time. Little does he know that is NOT appropriate at all. And last night I had to take a zofran. Between the exhaustion and the acid from the spaghetti my zantac wasn’t cutting it and I was ready to blow. Thankfully it kicked in and I was feeling better after a long shower. I’ve also been feeling really ugly. I know that sounds terrible, but I do. I have a whole post ready to go about that. I know you’re supposed to feel all beautiful and “glowy” but I don’t feel like that at all. Boo.
I’ve also been getting some AWFUL round ligament pain. Usually just on my right side but MAN it hurts. I have to always prepare if I am going to sneeze/cough. And getting up quickly is always a bad idea. The other day Cohen saw me hunched over in pain, he grabbed his play medical kit and started to “doctor” me up. Sweet & compassionate that kid is 🙂
This little one LOVES to move around still. I’ve been feeling more hits/kicks lately instead of just movement so that’s fun. Little baby loves to move after I eat something yummy and when I’m laying down. I’ve tried getting Cohen to feel the movement but this little stinker will stop moving right when Cohen puts his hand on my belly. Oh well, soon enough this little one won’t be able to hide the movement and Cohen will feel it just fine.
I started at 127 before I got pregnant – but was trying to get down to 125. So I consider what my “goal” weight is to be my “start” weight so that I can judge what I’m gaining based off of where I want to be afterwards.
8 week appointment: 129lbs
17 week appointment: 134lbs
This week I’m at: 135lbs
I am quite afraid of my weight gain as I’m only 18 weeks along and I’m already at 10lbs over my “goal weight” and I’m not even half way done! Ugh. I do NOT want to be up to 160lbs like I was with Cohen. No bueno. I guess I need to start getting out on my long walks again.
Well, I’m still on the veggie snacks kick & eggs for breakfast every single day, but the other day for the first time I had a big craving for a chocolate cake. I went out to the store and bought a cake mix, stuff to make icing & ice cream. But after I got home and put the kids down, I was still so full from dinner I didn’t even want it. That as Friday night, and it’s Tuesday morning and I still haven’t made it. lol. Oh well.
I think for the most part my mood swings are pretty good. I haven’t had any crying spells this week and haven’t spouted off much to the kids or hubs. Oh wait, scratch that, I did give the hubs an attitude the other day when he asked me a question. I didn’t even realize I did it. He was like, “Uhh, what’s with the attitude?!” And I was all like , “Uhh, what attitude?” Oops. Sorry babe!
