8 Months Pregnant and Tired all the Time
I realized today that I am 8 months pregnant. That sounds so weird. But boy am I feeling it. I am tired, my feet hurt, my legs hurt, I have to pee every hour it seems and just feeling so uncomfortable. I think most women at 8 months pregnant can relate to that. I am hoping to find some relief by resting more but that is hard to do with other small children in the house.
I had my Midwife appointment on Monday. I tested negative on my GTT test and my iron looks good. I am gaining more weight than she would like though so been trying to walk more. This seems to happen every pregnancy no matter what I do.
She also said I was measuring 3 weeks ahead. I asked if that could mean my due date was off and she didn’t think so. She said she would do an ultrasound if I still was next appointment. I admit I would love another ultrasound but we will see how it goes. From asking a ton of people, measuring 3 weeks ahead could mean nothing, it could mean a bigger baby, it could mean an earlier baby or it could mean my dates are off. Who knows really? I guess we just have to wait and find out. She said she would do a C-section if she thought the baby was over 11lbs but I don’t think that will be an issue. I don't like to hear about C-sections being given for babies that appear bigger than they might really be. I have had friends have them for that reason only for the baby to be born a lot smaller than they thought.
My parents are here visiting and we have been having fun. Tonight Ben and I got to go out for Mexican food. That was nice. It seems like in our pre-kid days we went out for Mexican a lot so it was neat to do that with him. Tomorrow I think we are going to go to the movies. Trying to take advantage of life before we become a family of five.
I have been so tired that I have been more of an online “reader” this week vs a “poster.” Hoping next week will be a little better and I will get out of my little funk.
How did you survive the last few weeks of pregnancy???
