31 weeks

We're getting there! 

Dear Brody. 
Hey! This week has been... Wow. 
Rough! And amazing! And everything in between. Daddy was fixing the jeep... Banging on stuff with a hammer. The noise made you flinch. Every time. It was cool and then I realized it was probably pretty loud for you so I went inside. 
I got your crib sheets! I'm a giant slacker on account of I'm so so tired! 
My belly moves most of the day while your awake. You like country music and you either hate George Straight or love him. This song "give it all we got tonight" came on... You punched or kicked so hard my hands jumped off my belly. 
You've been getting so big it's starting to be uncomfortable. 
I still love you though! 

Xoxo mommy

A few people ask how much longer we have until your here. Then tell me we aren't going to make it that far... Do I really look that big? 

I know I feel like I am. 

Left is from January. Before we were pregnant. Right? That's almost 8 months pregnant

I feel like a cow

I know I know. It's water weight, I'm having a baby, I'm not being hard on myself I'm just being honest about how I'm feeling. 
I know it'll go away too and it's all worth it! 

Symptoms: this list has GROWN 
I realize I had. A very smooth first and second trimester. VERY smooth. I deserve a little now.

Swelling (like professor clump transplanted his legs onto me. From my knees down I'm gigantic. I'm trying to get ahold of my doc today actually because I'm a little worried about it. 

Itching, like intense intense drive me cray wake up scratching at my stomach like its the end of the world itching. A had a freckle on my belly.. I have a scab now. In have so many stretch marks its insane. But I can't stop itching. I've tried so many things. Google has convinced me I have puppps. I know... I shouldn't google my symptoms but seriously.  

My belly button is starting to pop out. (This is both amusing and disgusting to me. If you know me personally you know that in have a huge problem with belly buttons.) 

Back aches, guys my back HURTS. I know there's a lot of extra weight all in front but this sucks. I've tried warm baths and that helps for maybe twenty minutes and then once I get out and I'm done its hurting again. 

Carpal tunnel!? My hands hurt. They are numb. I almost burnt myself to death dropping the curling iron the other day because with couldn't hold it. 
My hands are numb right now typing this. 
I can't make a full fist. I wake up and can hardly take my synthroid because I can grab it. 
And forget about opening ANY bottle. 

Aches and pains, my hips are so sore. I can't get comfortable in bed no matter how many pillows I wedge around me. My belly is uncomfortable when I stand up because of the way Brody lays. It take a ahold minute for it to adjust so I can stand up straight

Okay I was so lucky in first trimester not getting all that sick. But now!? I lay down in bed and feel like I'm going to throw up. I move anywhere and feel like it. I keep my Tums beside the bed in case anything starts to come up. I don't know if it helps or not really. 

Exhaustion. Like I can't keep my eyes open! No amount of coffee or diet Pepsi helps.
