8 Months Pregnant and Tired all the Time

IMG_8381 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 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.

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. 

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.

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. 

Also, next week is my Blog Anniversary so look out for a giveaway :)

    Glad I'm not the only one whose 8th month is kicking their butt! My kids are spaced so far apart that I have really noticed the extra fatique as I've gotten older. It is all I can do do get through a few chores without needing a nap lately!

    When I hit 31 weeks I was measuring 35. At 33 weeks, I was measuring 36. At 35 weeks, I measured 35. Weird huh? I asked my midwife and she said sometimes the uterus grows bigger early in the 3rd trimester and it takes the baby some time to catch up. I was very surprised to be measuring right on after being 3-4 weeks ahead. I know how you're feeling. These little bundles will be in our arms before we know it!
