Finally Feeling Pregnant
Not sure what it was, but I woke up yesterday, knowing I have only 9 weeks left of this pregnancy and I just felt pregnant. All day. My belly was rock hard all day (which is really uncomfortable), my shoulder was sore for no reason and I was so freaking tired. Today? Worse. My belly isn’t feeling as hard as yesterday (thankfully) but my entire body hurts, mainly my back/neck/shoulders and I’m exhausted. I’ve been waking up around 9:30AM so I have time to eat breakfast, as I’m not supposed to skip meals to help with the GD and blood sugar levels, but today I didn’t wake up til almost 11:30AM. And I had one of the most uninterrupted nights of sleep too, so I got more sleep than normal in the first place and then I slept in a lot more. And I still feel tired! My husband went to lunch with one of his co-workers so he didn’t come home, which didn’t bother me cuz I had just woken up and would feel bad if he would have had to make his own lunch. BUT I really wanted him home so he could rub my back and hopefully help with my painful neck and shoulders. Hopefully I can make it through the day and have him do it tonight after work.
Yesterday was payday, so we did our normal payday grocery shopping. We spent almost $200 at Sam’s Club and we had to be a lot more conscious of what we were buying! Because of my GD we were looking for stuff that didn’t have too many carbohydrates as that’s what I should be watching. After meeting with the nutritionist at the hospital, I learned that I can look at the nutrition label and take the total carbs and substract the fiber for counting carbs. Therefore, for a nice snack, we got some Fiber One bars and they are really good! They have a good source of fiber (which I want more of as I’m getting constipated again from being pregnant!) and some good fiber Cinnamon Cheerios! I’m not supposed to eat too much cereal in the mornings, but this cereal has a good amount of carbs after you minus the fiber so one bowl a morning won’t hurt me too much
Also tonight, I’ll be missing Grey’s Anatomy again because we have our second of three childbirth classes. Tonight we are supposed to be practicing breathing and pushing techniques. I’m just getting really nervous as there’s only 9 weeks left[1. If we are going by the official due date. The original due date was a week sooner!] and a lot of women have been saying when they had GD they were induced early, so I may have even less time! :confused:
Also, you may have noticed the new theme. I know it’s simple but I wanted something green and simple and here ya go! I also spent most of my day yesterday re-doing the about and webmiss pages I think they look much better!!
