Wow, I can’t believe how fast time is flying. Before I know it, I’ll be at the hospital cursing out the BD and screaming ” You did this to me!!!”. Ahhh, something to look forward to =)
So far everything is going ok, at my last doctor’s visit my blood pressure was kinda high but I blame it on being in the waiting room for 2hrs having to pee and being super hungry. That and I hate going to the doctor. I’m self diagnosed with having “white coat” syndrome. I don’t know what it is but I get the worst anxiety whenever I have to go to the doctor. I need to learn how to relax my mind and think good thoughts. We’ll see how that goes for the next visit.
As you can see , the belly is getting bigger and I’m super excited to be out of that ” is she pregnant or fat?” stage. I feel much bolder now that I’m showing. You get this feeling of empowerment when you’re pregnant, like you walk around thinking “yeah, I got a human growing inside of me…no big deal” and you wanna wear all the stuff you probably wouldn’t wear when you’re worried about that extra 10lbs you gained during Christmas. Like they say, if you got it flaunt it. But don’t worry, you wont be catching me 7 months preggo in dasiy dukes up in a club. Cause that’s not cute.
Being almost 6 months pregnant , for me, is WAY better then being 3 months. They call the 2nd trimester the “honeymoon” stage of pregnancy. I don’t have ALL DAY sickness, my super sense of smell has calmed down, I finally LOOK pregnant and food is awesome again. Those are all the plus sides. But with the good must come the bad…well, not that bad. You have to stay super hydrated at all times so that means peeing every 5 minutes which means getting over you phobia of public bathrooms (ewwww), sleeping is getting harder…they say the best way to sleep is on your left side , and that takes some getting used to when you’re used to sleeping on your stomach, shaving is now considered an exercise being I need a nap after I’m done, thank god for full length mirrors or I wouldn’t know what the hell is going on with my crotch, yeah..say goodbye to your lady parts cause you won’t be seeing much of it for a while, people will start rubbing your belly like you’re a budda or will grant them 3 wishes if they rub long enough…which is ok if I know you or you ask but I have a thing about random people touching me..back up son!! Then there’s the thing’s that follow you all the way through till the end: the back pain, your feet swelling at times, the stuffy nose, gums bleeding, and sleepyness…not too bad, nothing that I can’t handle =)
Knock on wood, I’m feeling pretty good these days and I’m grateful to be having this experience. The beginning was kinda rough and I’ve heard the ending isn’t a walk in the park but I take each day as it comes and I know it could be worse.
Sorry for the lack of posts, I’m getting all the sleep I can now because I know as soon as the little bean is here it’s no longer my world, I will try to update and chat as much as I can.
As always, thanks for sticking around and I’ll ttusoon <3
