So much to say? ** belly pic in post**

All morning I had a ton of posts jumping around in my head and now that it's lunch and I can log on...nothing. What a pain.


Instead I guess I'll bore people with stupid pg updates. I am apparently now huge and 4 different people told me yesterday that I started waddling. Thanks...I was pretty aware of it since my hips are all achy and creaky and hurt like a bitch all night long. Speaking of bitch, I am a raging one right now. Anything can set me off. I feel bad for everyone around me since I'm a time bomb. I've got my 1 hr glucose screening tomorrow morning. I'm eating a nice spinach salad with hard boiled eggs right now ;) Really nervous about this for some reason. I'm sure some psych person would say I'm displacing all of my other anxieties and making it all about this test...and they'd probably be right but I'd go all she-bitch on them so it would be a pretty pointless conversation.

The irritable old ute is getting a little better. I went to the H.ealthy Back store and spent way to much money on a fancy lumbar thing which helps the BH when I'm driving. Now that I've got that under control, I can pretty much manage them by never letting my bladder get too full. That was the other big trigger. And for now, Q has changed positions so she isn't kicking my bladder anymore. Those kicks use to cause some pretty bad BH. I think she's moved on to the liver or something underneath my ribs. My doc isn't as worried anymore since they're decreasing in frequency, so that makes me feel a TON better. (not going to lie though, part of me wanted to get a medical leave from work b/c of the whole driving thing so I could collect my short term disability. Otherwise I'm working right up until I give birth in this freaking school)

I was hoping some of my brilliant thoughts would come back to me as a typed but no luck. So for now go wish Shelby a happy birthday.

Oh...and since I'm feeling brave. Here's a pic from 4 1/2 weeks ago (exactly 24 weeks), very staged from my brother's wedding. Mr H is on the left and that pink cotton candy explosion...well that's me ;) Looks like a bad prom picture in front of the fireplace, doesn't it???

My hips hurt too. Already. I am not excited about that.

You look mahvahlous!

You look fabulous!

And I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels like someone is trying to destroy some organ under their ribs -- apparently misery loves company.

I think you guys are quite cute!

Jen said...

It does kind of look prom-like except that your pregnant. Although I guess going to promo knocked up is not out of the question, sadly. You look wonderful though. And oh how I hear you on the waddling thing.

I think you need this t-shirt to wear. http://www.cafepress.com/evilgeniusstore.131401510

Sadly, then they'd still touch your stomach.

My hips kill all the time...now it' turned into not just pain at night, but constant pelvic pain/pressure...thanks a lot babies! Nice to hear that someone else has become a raging bitch too...my husband was getting really worried about my road rage! You look great and keep up the great work!

Aw, you guys look great! I'm glad the BH are settling down a little bit. But I hope those go away even more :-)

deanna said...

Adriane said...

Yay for a belly pic - you really do look wonderful. It does look like you are going to a dance -- too cute!!

So funny that you are feeling like a bitch. I think the hormones are for real. :-)

Michell said...

You do look great. And did you stick out your tongue at the person who told you that you were waddling?? I would have. Of course we all know it happens but no one wants it pointed out to us.

Okay, making a bad joke. It's prom pic from that town in Mass!
