I am feeling so exausted. I have had the fog brain all day. I don`t understand cause I slept well last night. I did however get awoken several times by a certain baby growing in my womb. She is getting stronger and stronger and last night from 3-4 am seemed to be having a rave in there. I have been absolutely famished all day for the past three days as well, so I guess maybe baby is having another growth spurt and I am exausted from that. I just ate a yogurt cup, a frozen lunch thing of macaroni ground beef and cheese and then half a cucumber and I could more, I never eat that much.  

Having on and off groin and SI pain, most day`s it`s fine but I have started physio and sleeping with a body pillow foot to groin so I think that is helping alot. Physiotherapist confirmed my thought, my pelvis is not well aligned and my right side and lower back are quite weak. I have 4 different exercised to do 3 reps of 10 each day to strengthen those muscles. She also told me to not open my legs wide (dirty mind cue here), not lift anything any heavier then Oliver (10lbs) and limit my walking to no more then 30 minutes total a day for now.  I hope all of this will make the difference in my pain level in the last trimester, so afraid of the pain I had in the end with Evan and praying I don`t have to go there again.

My breasts are still super sensitive and on and off I get shooting pain deep in the tissue, all I can guess is that they are getting ready for milk production. My belly is swelling and swelling and getting hard as a rock, I can`t even imagine how big I will be come 35-38 weeks haha.

Overall I am feeling happy and peaceful these days tinged with a streak of anxiety. Loving feeling the babe move around in there, making her presence known, but it’s not regular or patterned yet. I want so badly to start shopping for girl stuff and going through Evan`s stuff and decide what I will keep and what I can part with. Dave and I have even discussed what we want to do with the nursery, but I am just not ready to do it all yet. I think I will feel a bit more ready after our follow up ultrasound in just over a week. I say cause I want to be SURE it`s a girl before I start selling off. The other thing is I keep thinking each little milestone will be "the" milestone that convinces me everything will be fine this time around, but each of those milestones come and go and I find myself just as nervous as ever, so I guess I just to live it with this anxiety and hope things work out.

Right now I need more food and have eaten all my lunch and snacks..I will have to go have a bagel from the lunchroom I guess. Grow baby grow, I will eat as much as I need to, you just keep growing.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. I was once told by a obgyn that “baby brain” is caused by a lack of Omega’s. The baby’s brain developing actually steals the omegas from your brain for hers. Try increasing your omega oils (flax oil is the best) and see if it helps with the fog… glad she is making her presence known! xoxox

  2. Forgive me if this is in some way insensitive or rude, but … are you and Dave planning to not have any more children after your daughter is born? (I ask because of your mention of getting rid of things.)

    • Oh that’s not insensitive or rude so no worries, it’s a perfectly valid question.
      We do want to have another child after this, we always wanted to have to two children. Only reason I would not keep everything is I don’t have a big house and right now half my basement is filled with rubermaid bins full of boy clothes. We were waiting to see the gender of this babe, but since it’s a girl we can’t have a house full of boy and girl clothes. Since most of the clothes we have are second hand it’s not the end of the world to part with them. I figure they can be easily replaced if we have a boy next time. We will keep all the furniture and big stuff, I just want to part with the blatent boy clothes that will just spend another 2 year in my basement with no guarantee we will have a boy next time.
      Kwim? :)Not doing a damn thing until I see baby girl part anyways, that’s all I need is to get rid of everything and then see a penis was hidding out haha.

  3. My belly is swelling and swelling, but sadly there is no good reason for it other than all the bad food I’ve been eating. Lol.
