Just one more week before I reach my random goal of 30 weeks lol.
Still not sure why reaching that point would be comforting to me. I guess b/c so many women give birth when they're in their 30 weeks.. like 38, 39 etc.
Anywho.. bump photo... today vs 22w
I'm wearing the same shirt so figured it would be a good comparison heh.
I'm about to talk about my various bodily functions so... just warning ahead of time for anyone that doesn't want to read about it. You can skip to the next segment heh.
Man... pregnancy is starting to get uncomfortable! Don't get me wrong, I love being pregnant and wouldn't trade it for anything, but yesterday sucked.
I'm not entirely certain if it was just b/c Zoe was positioned weird in there or what, but yesterday was painful walking around.
It felt like she was laying right against my cervix and my urethra. The urethra pain is the worst. It's like someone taking tiny thorns and stabbing me with them in that area.
And then, I had terrible stomach cramps right after dinner. Not sure why b/c I knew I hadn't eaten anything that would upset my stomach like that. I did have a BM, but that sucked b/c it felt like my bumhole (I know I could use a better word but meh), was having these sharp painful spasms in it.
Thankfully they stopped a few minutes after the BM but it was painful during. If you've never felt that feeling before, be thankful!
I'm also starting to get to the point where I'm going to need help getting up off of our couch. Everywhere else, I can stand up just fine from a sitting position, but the couch... the couch I have to scoot to the edge and then grunt my way up. It's terrible trying to stand up when I have a full bladder too b/c I can't bend over at all without the baby pressing on the bladder making the feeling worse.
I'm gonna start peeing on myself soon :P hehe
Even with all of the aches and pains though... totally worth it and I can not wait to do it all over again :)
DH is totally fascinated by the bunny that gets in to our yard. He took a ton of photos of it yesterday.
I thought this one was the cutest. There were a bunch of birds eating out of the feeds and dropping seeds on to the rabbit's back.
And photos of my gardens!
They're 2 raised bed gardens next to eachother. DH disassembled the 2 giant ones we had and made a much more manageable size for me to take care of.
This one has the cucumbers and the pepper plants
And this one the zucchini and tomatoes. As you can see, the zucchini plants are struggling. We bought some marigolds in hopes that it would repel the squish bugs away. We used an organic pesticide on them last week, but it didn't do anything. They DID look nice before the bugs got on them. Hopefully they're not completely dead and will still produce.
If not... oh well.
I'm really excited about the tomatoes though. I just ended up buying some plants from Home Depot a few weeks ago. They're different variety that I've never tried before so really interested to see how they do. Growing tomatoes is easy, but for some reason, I can never get the tomatoes to grow right. They usually always end up with some kind of fruit rot.
And finally, just some of the work DH has been doing. It's the back of our fence and he's planted blackberries, raspberries, and blueberry bushes. Oh and a grape :P DH wanted the grape but I don't think it's going to do much heh.
He also finally planted the banana tree back there and a few other plants that really needed to go out that have been stuck in pots for over a year now heh. He got a lot of work done these past few weekends *nodnod*
I want our backyard to be filled with fruiting trees too. We have the peach one planted and the asian pear. But that's it so far.
I really want a regular pear tree and then maybe a persimmon. Still have an apple that we need to plant too.
We really don't have a lot of room back there though so not sure where all of this is going to go hehe. Just wanna be able to go out there in a couple of years and pick fruit off of the trees with the family. Would be so fun. I remember doing it as a kid w/ the pear tree we had. OMG those pears were the biggest and best.
