Though the way I was counting before, according to all those confusing dates that are impossible to keep track of anyway, I was originally anticipating to be a week and a half ahead of the doctor’s prognosis.
So after the first visit, I was a little disappointed because it already felt like so much waiting, and I just had to wait another week and a half!
But now it feels like things are picking up!
I’m feeling better, I feel like doing stuff, and I actually am doing stuff, which is helping me feel so much more accomplished!
I’m getting noticeably bigger. But I think its noticeable only for me and those whom I convince, but it is all about how I feel, so whatever!
I already have some bigger sized clothes on the way! But especially with the mail not working today I am starting to feel like my baby will be delivered before the clothes are!
And – thanks to Stacy’s advice, I have ordered a belly panel last night.
I have to say – the whole pregnancy forgetfulness – maybe its psychosomatic, but for me it is totally real. I was ordering the belly panel last night, and then I totally blanked out! The tab was closed and I didn’t remember if I finished ordering it or not, I didn’t get the confirmation email right away. But this morning turns out I did… I have totally accepted that I am going crazy.
I could be carrying something somewhere, and get distracted, set it down somewhere, and then I will forget everything – where I was going, what I was carrying and where I put it !!! I guess it is very good after all that we are no longer in the big house we had back in Houston, but instead in this tiny California apartment! Everything is bound to turn up sooner or later.
One pregnancy “side effect” that is driving me crazy – all the zits!!! I’ve never had this many zits in my life! My back, my chest, my face… gross! I feel like some prepubescent greasy teenage boy with dandruff… yick!
Oh, another thing – no one seems to have heard of this, except for the inventors of all those wacky pillows, – no sleeping on the back? Did you guys hear about it? Do you start to feel something if you lay on your back? Why does sleeping have to be so hard in general??!! Not fair!
I’d like to share this comic with you today, its about pregnancy AND the zit I got on the tip of my nose yesterday… My husband sang me the Rudolph song, he’s so nice!
