I hope you are feeling better!

UGH!!!  so sorry!!!

 

i have so little appetite these days.  i've started juicing again (not that i like juice any better than food, but it seems useful) and want carbs, salad, and lots of cold icy drinks.  bubbly water and salad and potatoes is a classic meal for me.  i don't feel like it's balanced at all or ideal, but that's what the prenatals are for too, right?

 

i've been trying on protein, but not thinking about it too hard.  b/c i just don't even want food very much.  

 

i'd much rather sleep than eat right now!!!  Thankfully, husband has been AMAZING on that front and kept me in bed for as long as possible each day.  we've also moved our evening go-down time to 8ish- movie in bed and snuggling and he can stay up late and surf the web and watch movies, while i sleep away.  it's good, b/c at the end of the day (as i'm sweeping/mopping/doing dishes/laundry etc) the baby's head is LOW and painful and the BH are terrifyingly intense.  but in the morning, when i wake up, it's like the baby is kicking my collarbone the feet and butt are up so high.  and i'm remembering this is how i spend the last month of pregnancy!  feeling rough and painful (even intense back pain and BH together for hours some days unless i get off and stay off my feet) every night, but then baby is high and easy in the mornings.

So I'm assuming that the tenderness/pain I'm feeling down low is due to the head? She's only been head down for just over a week so I'm still trying to get used to it! It's not there all the time but when it is I definitely feel it.

I've had some more intense heartburn too usually in the evening.

Finally(!!) felt hiccups too this week smile.gif

Anyone else taking insulin for GD?  I was on metformin, but it made me feel so sick... was in the bathroom most of the day.  So, I called the doctor and they've switched me.  I'd run out and get it from the pharmacy but we have several feet of snow on the ground and my dh can't get the van out of the driveway.

Wow, heartburn from everything. Especially water. Got up to pee last night at 3:30 and drank water. Then had to get back up to get something for the heartburn. I hate tums and don't keep them around but I bought some today because it was burning again in the car. Just want to say THANK YOU to whoever recommended the tums smoothies. They are a million times better than the regular ones.

I'm actually more comfortable in the hips/pelvis area the last 2 weeks than I've been in a few months. No idea what the deal is there, since I'm used to things getting more uncomfortable and the pregnant waddle getting more obvious. But, for now, I'm very thankful and enjoying pain free sleep and walking.

YAY FOR THE HICCUPS!!!

 

i mean, i think.  i like the hiccups.blowkiss.gif

 

 

but yes, there is sometimes a dull aching low in the groin from the head- i found when it's REALLY LOW i can feel it when i go to the bathroom and move around, and it's uncomfortable.  but it moves up and down a lot.

i LOVE it when baby girl gets the hiccups. it's just so cute! 

 

reflux is awful at night, i chew papaya enzyme like nobody's business. i tried berry flavored tums but they are disgusting, and the artificial colors in them is not my cup of tea.

post #128 of 313
Yes I loved the hiccups! I swear she has been doing barrel rolls all day today. Good lord! Maybe because its the first day I haven't really done anything. Just being lazy and laying around today - totally getting beat up lol

Ooohhh!! I've been suffering with this aching pain in my pelvis and hips for the last week or two. I've just been writing it off as general pregnancy pains since my bones are all shifting around and such, but it's nicer to think that it's because of her head. Dr says she's been head down for weeks now, though I honestly can't tell one way or another. I do know that all the hiccups (averaging 4 times each day at this point) usually seem to be down low.

My legs and feet have finally decided to swell. Ugh. And I'm getting dizzy spells. I've definitely been on my feet more the past couple of days due to hosting xmas so they both make sense! In my experience, once the swelling has started, it doesn't completely go away, no matter what I do, so that's a bummer.

post #131 of 313

Yep I can relate to the pain from the head being down. I carried my daughter breech the whole time and never felt that pain. This baby is head down the whole time and its a HUGE difference! Lots of weight I can feel in the groin area and leg/hip pain...

I am having some serious pain shooting from the middle of my inner thigh up into my groin.  It makes me fall to the ground when I am walking.  I just got adjusted on Monday, so I am bummed out that the pain is back already.  DH keeps looking at me like I am going into labor and asking what is wrong.  I can't help but laugh since it must look really scary to him.

 

I was reading online that pelvic tilts can help.  I am going to try that.

 

Anyone else?

i can't say anything for sure- but i did have this when in labor w/ my last baby.  my midwife told me AFTERWARDS that when the baby's hand is up by the cervix or up by the face, it can cause this sharp shooting pain through the inner thigh and groin.  it was so intense that it seemed worse than the contractions when it was happening.  tingling/burning and i couldn't stand w/out grabbing something.  didn't have it during that pregnancy, or at all during this pregnancy, but there might be something about the positioning that makes the baby hit that nerve.  so tilts and getting the baby adjusted sounds like it would help!

 

and hope you figure it out sooner ASAP!

sooooooo sleepy all the time!!!

 

i think i could spend the day in bed, and then just get up to eat and go to the bathroom. 

 

i honestly wouldn't mind eating in bed!

 

anyone else just wiped?  I'm sleeping all the time too but just want to keep sleeping!!!

I have 2 main issues going on lately, besides all the stuff everyone else as mentioned - the hip achy-ness and the heartburn (which seems better the past week? maybe?)

 

I realized yesterday that i haven't been tired in days - i think i've got some form of pregnancy insomnia .. though its not really keeping me from sleeping, just keeping me from ever feeling like i should go to sleep at night..  its weird..  if i get in bed and close my eyes i fall asleep but i wake up feeling like i never slept and don't want to go back to sleep, i wake up every 1-2 hours to pee and feel like i could just get up and start my day..  so odd. & I get soooo irritated when my DH talks about being tired or won't get out of bed.. 

 

i also can't stand regular clothes.  Its driving me crazy that i can't just get dressed in the morning, there is nothing i can wear besides PJs that doesn't feel like torture..  my belly is so low, it folds over my pubic bone and nearly touches whatever i'm sitting on and with maternity jeans, that is just crazy uncomfortable..  i need to be able to wear a skirt or dress or yoga/pj pants at all times.. my last pregnancy i was this big in august so wearing a dress wasn't a problem..

I've started to wake up crazy early like 4:30am and have this feeling of elation and I want to get up. It must be hormones screwing with us. I can't always get back to sleep for hours but I'm not that tired. No trouble napping in the late morning or afternoon though.

can't say i feel the sleep thing as all i do is sleep!  so sorry!

 

but this is so me too on the clothes!  i have one large lined dress that is AWESOME.  otherwise, i'm in a nightie and cardigan!!!  my belly is not that low- but i can't wear clothes!

post #138 of 313

If I want to keep working, I have to keep wearing clothes.  That's the only reason I get dressed regularly these days!

post #139 of 313

Yup.  I used to be exhausted starting around 5:00 in the evening, now it's about an hour after I get up in the morning.  If I have to do anything at night I have to take a serious nap.  Insomnia, check., heartburn, check., hip pain, check., varicose veins (REALLY not happy about these), check.  Trying to kick a cold I've had for almost 2 weeks, and avoid all the other illnesses floating around the extended family.  One more month!!

whenever i fall asleep my dreams are super intense and not good. last night i had 3 that i can remember. 1, i was held hostage by a silence of the lambs landlord who collected plush baby toys. 2, i was living in a place where the woman downstairs from me would come up into my house all the time and steal my houseplants no matter what precautions i took to keep her out. 3, i kept trying to explain to people on the street that i was being followed but no one understood what i was saying. 

 

do intense/scary dreams stress me out in my sleep and affect baby?
