Well, There are things I like about being pregnant and there are things I dont. I am so grateful to finally have a healthy, growing baby that I try to remind myself everytime I am feeling sick, achy, moody, etc that I am grateful to be all those awful things because in the end it will give us a new bundle of joy. Things I could do without: Mood swings- I literally feel myself turning into a mad women sometimes and I have no control over myself. Its awful, even more to the person on the other end of my mood swing. I hope with time they can forgive me. Aches and Pains- My most recent is the restless leg that comes on almost every night and keep me awake and miserable. I do NOT know how I would be surviving without the heating pad. I am also not a huge fan of the round ligament pains that are coming back earlier and earlier every pregnancy. I was barely 16 weeks when I started feeling them this time around. Fat- Do we really have to get so frumpy and fat? Is it really necessary. There has got to be a way around this. Acne-Ok, so its not full blown but my skin is awful during pregnancy. I have zits that appear in places I didn't even know you could get them. Food Adversions- Thankfully I am just making past these but I literally had 5 foods I could eat for the first 18 weeks and all of them were in the dairy food group. Things I love: Feeling the baby kick- This is by far my favorite thing about being pregnant. I love being able to feel this little life inside of me and pondering our already forming relationship. The boys are so adorable. They are hugging and kissing my belly every day. I couldn't ask for better boys. They make my heart swell. My awesome husband. He is so involved. I love every minute of him telling me what I can and can't eat. Asking me what size fruit our baby is this week. Dealing with my mood swings, touching my belly, attending my appointments, giving of his pillows, volunteering to do things for me, etc. He is so great. It is much different than what I was used to in my previous pregnancies and I am cherishing these moments with him. I am so excited to be having a baby girl! I know that her brothers and dad are going to take such good care of her. I cant wait to meet her. Hopefully we can agree on a name before she comes in March. I am also praying for 38 weeks of pregnancy and not 40. Is that so bad?
