I don't know how much I weigh; although two weeks ago, I had gained a whopping 17 lbs. Yuck. I feel like a very large person. VERY LARGE. And don't bother telling me that I'm just cute and adorable and pregnant. I know I'm pregnant. I know I'm supposed to get bigger. And I know that I haven't gotten big anywhere except my belly. Knowing and believing are two entirely different things. I feel like a giant that sways back and forth on my feet because of the extra poundage I'm carrying around.
I have started having leg cramps at night. I had them with Ethan, too, but I was hoping they would be like the constant migraines I had with him....non-existent. Instead, my calves are sore because of them. It's painful, people.
I am leaking. Yes, it's gross. Yes, it's TMI. Yes, it's happening. So much that I have resigned myself to the fact that I will indeed have to wear a bra to bed from now until who knows when since I'm going to breastfeed. I can FEEL it when they start, too. It kinda stings a little. And usually coincides with baby thoughts. I have a bad habit of looking to see if I'm right and have found that I have to stop myself when it happens in meetings. How embarrassing would that be? "Don't mind me...just checking out the colostrum spewing from my boobs. Back to work guys!" Fun.
I have noticed some flab on my arms, so naturally, instead of walking today, I lifted weights. Now if I can keep it up.
Baby is moving lots. I'm tired of calling baby, baby. Wishing hubs and I would come up with a name already. Overall, this pregnancy is still far easier and more comfortable than my first. I feel pretty good. If I didn't have to eat, I'd feel great. That's when I feel the worst.
I'm still able to sleep fairly well; however, baby sits low, so I get up to pee a lot. Annoying. Whatever.
And so here's the latest in pictures.
The above was at about 25.5 weeks. I'm a little bigger now. Seems to coming on fast!
The above was last week (25 weeks) at an event
The above is an old picture of me when I was 7.5 months pregnant with Ethan. Not much different than now....and I am not 7.5 months pregnant yet.
