I’m still feeling pretty good, though, I have noticed a few little things. Like how I almost burnt my belly on a pot of hot water when I was draining pasta tonight. Or how every time I bend over, I feel like I need to push off the ground with my hands to get back up. I'm still amazed I haven’t had any swelling and I really hope it stays that way until after our maternity pics in a few weeks. I can tell exactly where I’ve gained weight (despite everyone’s nice comments, I know for a fact I’m not all belly) and I don’t want my face to be any puffier. Or I may end up with a third chin by the end of this.
I had another doctor’s appointment yesterday – this going every 2 weeks thing is annoying. I know it’s good for a check-up but the fact that I waited over an hour to talk to my doctor for a good 5 minutes is not fun. I was ready to lay down and take a nap on the patient’s table at one point. Also, trying to pee in a cup when you can’t see over your belly is just ridiculous. Anyways, he asked me again about the epidural thing since I saw a different doctor last time and wanted to know my feelings about everything. I was pretty straight forward about how I’m trying to deliver naturally and only want a c-section if necessary, and he seemed very surprised by that. Though he did say he was not recommending it per say, he asked my thoughts about an elective c-section. I just have this weird feeling that a spinal won’t work for me if I choose to have a c-section and I don’t want to think about it unless it absolutely comes down to that. Anyways, I left the appointment feeling a little apprehensive about what’s to come. On a different note, he measured my bump and told me Baby C is measuring to be a “healthy sized baby”. I think that was code for “you have a large kid cooking in there”.
32 Week pic…let’s just say I can’t believe I still have another 8 or so weeks to go and I’m already this huge…oh my…
And what I wore to work…have I shown this dress before? I can’t remember but I have a feeling I’ll be repeating outfits soon if I haven’t already. Maternity dress from Target, shrug from JCPenney, belt from NY&Co.
