Baggage

Pregnancy Report:

I. Am. Huge.

There is just no denying it. I feel like I am carrying twins or something. In reality, I haven't gained much weight, maybe 5 or 6 pounds, but I simply cannot fit into anything anymore. I didn't look like this last time until I was at least 4 or 5 months along. And I know that things are supposed to "pop" sooner the second time around, but goodness gracious! This is ridiculous.

I have gone up 2 bra sizes already - if this continues I will be giving Pamela a run for her money!

The "morning sickness" for the most part is gone. I am still drinking water with added juice though because straight water makes me feel gross.

It appears my hair has stopped falling out by the handful (for the most part). I was beginning to wonder there for a while if I would end up completely bald.

I still haven't heard from Medicaid. Hopefully this week I'll get something in the mail and can finally set up an appointment.

Sleeping is already an issue. My dreams are so intense; they go all night long and they leave me exhausted. I wake up drenched in sweat and sore from clenching my jaw and my fists. My hips are already giving me fits as well. By mid night they feel like they could fall out of socket. I have a need to curl myself up and hold everything in place.

By 3:00 I am done. I fall asleep sitting up. Poor Kiddo doesn't understand why I fall asleep reading a book to him on the couch. I don't remember being this tired last time.

I guess that's the run down for now. I am planning on taking some pictures soon. I've gotta get a good set up together so they can be consistent each week.

More later,
Until,
D :)

Wow! Well....I hope you get that appointment soon! Maybe a little early ultrasound is in order :)
You do get bigger faster though. Maybe it's just loosened joints and ligaments. I'm glad you're not feeling sick anymore!

Hope everything gets straighted out with the Medicaid soon!

Your description could be mine, except that I dropped 5 lbs in the first month from being so sick. Even that didn't stop me from popping around 10 weeks, which like you I didn't pop with C until 4-5 months as well. I can't even imagine how huge we'll both be if we keep expanding at this rate. :)
