Weight: 113 lbs
Symptoms: Severe constipation
Attitude: Slowly coming out of the doldrums
I’m convinced my ickyness is caused by constipation. Last time, pregnancy made me more regular. Regular = happy, but tired mama. Nowadays, I’m bloated and feeling like crud — like there are bricks just sitting in my tummy making me feel super heavy. I tend to feel more crappy a night, as if all the food I’ve eaten throughout the day has been sitting in my stomach and staying put. It does get a little better when I remember to drink plenty of water and eat my veggies but both things are difficult to remember when I’m at working. So I’m taking advantage of the long weekend to clean out the pipes!
On to the less gross topics!
I had another visit at the OB’s office last week. I went through a lengthy medical history with the OB nurse. She informed me the earliest I can take my glucose test is 18 weeks. Not looking forward to failing that one. Then I got to see one of the OBs and more importantly, the butterBean. And butterBean is right! He’s already measuring a week over! Oops … maybe I should be sticking to the GD diet a little more closely. But I could clearly see hands and feet and ears. He was not liking that we were trying to sneak a peek at him – he kept shifting around and kicking as if to say we were interrupting his sleep. Already, he’s turning out to mp be much different than the bean. The bean was very cooperative and still during all of the ultrasounds. Hopefully this little guy learns to calm down!
NT scan is scheduled for next week. One more peek and then we won’t see him for another 8 weeks.
