It seems as though over the weekend I have turned into a real pregnant woman. I mean I've had the belly for quite some time now and sleep has been an issue, but other than that I have to say I've had a pretty easy ride.
Now...I'm a human sausage. My fingers and toes became unrecognizable and my appetite went way up and let's just say sugar is back in my life (hello major Waffle House and candy cravings). I'm tired all the time. I think I could lay in bed all day if it didn't hurt so much.
As of today I have semi remedied the swelling problem for the time being. I've been sucking down lots of water and trying my best to stay off my feet as much as possible. After a couple of days, I think my appendages are looking somewhat more normal...it's hard to remember what normal looks like these days though.
I know I'm probably going to receive recommendations to go to the doctor because swelling can be signs of other issues. Never fear though. We have a doctor coming to our house tomorrow. To our house? Yes! We are trying to up our life insurance in order to prepare for our new little addition and they will be testing blood pressure, weight, and all that other lovely stuff that's really not so normal for me right now. Note to self and others....you should really do this BEFORE you are 36 weeks pregnant....not smart on our part, not smart.
So anyways I'll be having all my vitals tested tomorrow and if they don't look normal I will take my swollen sausage self to the doctor. The good news is I can be easily tested again for better insurance rates once I'm back to normal.
