I'm pretty sure I'm the worst pregnant blogger out there.
I don't even remember the last time I did a pregnancy update.
Honestly because I don't feel like it, and taking pictures of this big belly isn't the most flattering thing so...they don't usually happen. hah!
BUTTTT, my mom MADE (which resulted in the edited photo for this post...you've been warned) me the other day so she could show all of her friends on facebook, which by the way, everyone says, "OMG YOU DON'T HAVE A FACEBOOK?!"
Here I am at 36 weeks! that's like 270+ days which means I have 26 more days to go.
And as for why I've edited myself to look like a bee farmer/florist?
I have no idea.
It just seemed like the right thing to do.
I'm sure you can tell how enthused I am to have my picture taken at this point.
Just a little side note?
"They" tell you about the pregnancy symptoms like the morning sickness, the groin pain, the hair growth, the weird food aversions but what they DON'T tell you is how completely and horrifically you become OBSESSED with the way your arms and legs look.
This cottage cheese has GOT TO GO.
It was not invited to this little shindig but somehow showed up and is staying.
ORRRR how your hair won't cooperate no matter how much product you put in it.
I'm not sure where this wild mane came from but it's not what I'm used to hence the extremely flattering farmer's hat.
NOW, to say all of that, I now say how amazing this pregnancy really has been.
I haven't really had a bad pregnancy overall.
Yea, I just complained about stupid crap BUT I'm human and it felt good to get it out.
So, it really just comes down to the fact that I'm ready to meet my sweet baby girl. :)
ONWARD TO THE PREGNANCY UPDATE!
How far along? 36 weeks and 2 days, yo! that means 26 days left! yeauh buddy!
How big is baby? my doctor said she believes she's 6 1/2 pounds..which means if she continues to gain a pound a week then...holy bologna she will be 10 1/2 pounds...please read with horrific shock as my mind goes straight to an image of pushing out a 10 1/2 pound baby..........
How I’m feeling? tired, moody, happy, anxious, pissed off about this groin pain that stops me in my tracks.
Weight? I've gained a total of 20 pounds so far. I'm hoping to only gain 25 total.
How I’m changing? well these here boobs? I'd be more excited about the porn star quality as of late if they weren't resting on a belly when I sit down. That's just...weird. Also, for the past week or so I've had this crazy amount of groin pain like I did the splits (HA! that's funny.) without stretching. It's not so much excruciating as it is annoying and then occasionally it catches me off guard and feels like my sweet little innocent baby has a knife and is stabbing the shiz out of my groin. Not cool Syl, not cool. :)
What I miss? I'm not even going to lie. I miss beer. I miss margaritas. I miss being able to see my hooha. Not that I really need to, but what's the saying? You don't know what you had until it's gone? Well to make it more applicable, I don't remember what the heck it looks like and it's on my body so I want to see it.
I miss just getting out of bed like a normal person.
I miss running. Don't mistake this for "I'm an avid runner". I just miss actually running around in the yard by myself for no reason. it's a sight.
Symptoms? Braxton Hicks all day urr day. groin pain, extreme exhaustion.
Cravings? actually nothing really..food isn't my friend right now. everything tastes the same.
Food Aversions? nothing spicy. GOD FORBID SPICY FOODS! they turn me into the hulk at night. no bueno.
Highlights this week? swimming in our cute little 3 foot pool last night that we got a few weeks ago. :) it was extremely relaxing and made this belly weightlesssssss. it was amazingggg. And it gave me and the hubarooni some time to just relax and talk to each other. Something that we really haven't been able to do due to the hustle and bustle of everything lately. So it was the BEST.
