32 week belly and butt

For posterity, here is a shot of not only my belly, but also my behind. (which, although my behind is bigger, I still don't look all that pregnant from the back! It's hot, I've been working around the house, and my hair is growing out---hence, I look like poop.

32 weeks

It's looming... as of tomorrow, I will officially be 8 months. YIKES! I had an appointment this morning, and the doctor was very happy with my weight gain over the past three weeks--only 3 pounds! She said my overall gain is a little much (YEAH RIGHT), but that it's good for now. Heartrate was 145-150... I go again in 2 weeks, on the same day as some baby related class at the hospital.

I'll take some belly pics at some point today or tomorrow.

Acid reflux

Mmmmm, a reason to have ice cream every night! Yesterday before lunch, I noticed this weird feeling in what I would imagine is my esophagus... it sort of felt like I when I haven't chewed my food properly. It went away, but then I felt it later again. Everything I've read points to acid reflux rather than heartburn. But, I guess that wive's tale holds true for another pregnancy, since we've already seen that this baby's got a bit of hair.

Other than that, I continue to feel great--my only real complaint in my tailbone, which hurts like the dickens. I sit on a bed pillow all day, which helps, but sitting for long periods makes it really hurt.

I can feel my hormones are raging, which is weird. My brain says "Why are you flying off the handle, self? There's no reason for it" yet so it happens anyway.

M actually said he likes having a pregnant lady around because I don't take $hit. We were at KFC and they had a big sign "If we don't offer you a drink, it's free." So, the woman told us our total, I said I wanted a drink, and then when she put it in as a charge, I said, "Isn't that FREE???" I'm such a witch.

30 week big ole belly

Pardon my looking like poop. Bambino felt like doing the twist last night, so I guess it affected my sleep. Not bothering with makeup anymore probably is a factor too.

Ps--this is the exact same shirt I wore in the 22.5 week shot (March 22) and clearly is no longer long enough.

It's tough to say...

Who exactly does this baby look like? After seeing my baby picture, I thought for sure he/she looks like me. Then seeing M's, I think the nose is all his as a baby. But then I looked at Rachelle's baby pictures side by side with Bambino's and gosh darnit if he/she doesn't look like her.

The funny thing is that none of us have that pout in our baby pictures. But we all know that pouting is all Mommy!!

I hope to take belly pictures today for the 30 week enormousness.

28.5 weeks

I had a doctor's appointment today. My next appointment is in 3 weeks, then 2 weeks after that... wow---almost at the 30 week mark. She didn't say anything about my weight, although the last time we saw this particular doctor, she seemed pretty serious that I not gain more than X lbs (which is about where I am now). My blood pressure is very good, she said, and Bambino's heart rate was about 140... this kid's heart goes up and down like nobody's business.

So here's the real belly picture, despite my feeling more like the picture in the post below. I think this top makes me look a little bit smaller in the picture...maybe I'll get another 5 of them and wear one every day... God, this haircut just keeps getting worse and worse!
