I’m really close to my third trimester and I am starting to really feel it – I don’t know why I look so tan in these pictures, but Why Yes, I’m wearing red lipstick. Pelvic pain started this week – it’s different than last time but still unpleasant and annoying. More desire to eat has started too. Sometimes I’m just sitting around thinking about cheeseburgers and french fries. I’m willing to cave to certain things, but I’m also trying to drink green juices that I make in my new Nutribullet so that I can still get some good stuff. H and I split a “smoodie” for breakfast this morning. He’s always stealing it and then like spitting raspberry seeds back into it, GAH. Today’s “smoodie”: kale, pineapple, raspberries, strawberries, banana, water. I get a lot of stomach aches now though. It seems like a lot of things give me a stomach ache like really random stuff, which sort of takes the fun out of it. I also MIGHT be getting stretch marks… it’s hard to tell, like I think I might see the faint beginnings of some but it looks to be early. I’ve been coating on the creams ever since. Ah well, I’ve come to like one-piece swim suits.
I’m totally exhausted still, but have somehow learned to live and function on less good sleep. Part of that is adjusting to Abe’s new work schedule – we both get up earlier now, so we’re like zombies by 9pm. What day is it even? We never really know.
We have the nursery furniture picked out, so we’re a tiny step closer to actually having it in hand. We’re not much closer on a name or on emptying out what will be the new baby nursery, but those things will happen eventually.
Not much else to report. I was troubled when I stepped on the scale this morning, but overall I think I’m still doing better than last time around!
