We have made it to 30 weeks!
With that said, oh my goodness, I have a full ten more weeks to go.
I feel so bad and so guilty not enjoying every moment of being pregnant. I have had those fantastic pregnancies. The ones where you are not uncomfortable, you are energetic, you are happy, and you are loving being pregnant. Those are great.
I have also had the hard ones that have you praying. A lot of praying. This is one of those pregnancies. I would say 65% of the time I am great. I feel good and I have energy. The other 35% of the time is just crap. Yes, I said crap. I just hurt. I ache. I am miserable. I was driving yesterday, on the verge of tears, and praying that God would give me His strength to make it through 10 more weeks. I was asking how I am even going to make it through the 10 more weeks. That makes me feel even worse. We are blessed to be pregnant and have a healthy pregnancy.
Sometimes I feel like I am in the Aliens movie. That is actually quite normal. In your last month! I still have 2 1/2 months ahead of me. Yeesh! Baby Girl pushes out so hard that I will clench my hands and close my eyes at the pain. What are you doing in there???? She is supposed to only be in the 13% in size, so how is it that she is taking up every inch of my abdomen?
Our final (hopefully) ultrasound is next Wednesday with my dr. appt following it. I am hoping to get some answers as to why this pregnancy is so different from the other ones.
Onto the good things. Baby Girl is active- Lord help me. I have no swelling anywhere. Yay! I can tie my own shoes.
This week’s stats:
My weight is 165 pounds. While my stomach is getting much bigger, my weight isn’t changing all that much. Not to worry. I have plenty of fat stored in the caboose! I am staying active, and that helps my body to use the reserves. 🙂
My belly is 43 1/2 inches around at the belly button.
Not only does the measurement show my belly is really growing, but so do the people around me. We missed church 2 Sundays ago ( I hate that), when everyone saw me the next time I had many different people practically yell, “Oh my goodness, you’re HUGE!” or, “Wow, you have grown a lot! Are you sure there is just one in there?”. Ya’ll don’t make feel too good now. LOL
Here I am at 30 weeks:
So, how is your week going? 🙂
Leaning on God,
