Uncomfy? Uhm... yeah

Well, when women tell ya that the end of pregnancy is uncomfortable, they are not joking.
I'm not even at the end and I'm already uncomfortable about 70% of the time.

I keep getting woken at night by the LO putting pressure on my cervix. That shit HURTS.
And going to bed... it takes FOREVER to get comfortable. For about 20-30mins... it feels like my bump won't settle, like it's just in a bad position or something, it's weird. After the 20-30 though it's fine and I can roll and whatnot all I want.

If LO gets in to certain positions in there, it's uncomfortable to even stand, and yeah, sometimes sit as well.
It was ok this morning b/c it felt like she was up high, but she's slowly gone back down again and it's causing some aching down below.

Eating is a PITA again b/c I guess from everything being pushed up, eating anything and having it sit in my stomach pushes in to my lungs making it feel like I can't take in a deep breath.

Thankfully I haven't felt any rib kicks yet though so there's at least that hehe.

I can't wait to do this all over again though. I don't care if the next pregnancy is worse, if I have morning sickness, swelling, aversions galore, headaches, whatever.... I can not wait to do this again b/c it's just so worth it.

Even with all of the aches and pains... I'm still enjoying this. Every time I feel her move... it makes me happy and I know she's gonna be here soon and it's going to change our lives.

This whole experience is still surreal and I'm sure it won't sink in for quite a while after she's born too heh.

OOOO I was bad this morning. Went and bought some Burger King. Yeah, my sugar was a little high from that bleh.

Last night was a surprise though. Had some Korean BBQ along w/ rice, cucumber kimchi and a whole mess of watermelon after.
If you've never had Korean BBQ, it's pretty sweet (and delicious), so I was expecting my sugar to be WAY up there b/c of that w/ the rice and the watermelon, but NOPE! It was only 104! YAY!
I think I just need to stay away from bread in general. I think that more than anything is what my body just can not handle right now.

Sucks b/c we're supposed to be going to Fazoli's(sp?) tonight for family dinner. BLEH! Yeah lemme see the menu, pasta, pasta, subs, pasta, more pasta oh and breadsticks..... SIGH

Ugh, that sucks :-( I know, I've heard it can be really rough! Even though I would do anything to experience pregnancy, I know those uncomfy times would be very difficult. You have always seemed very grateful and appreciative of what you have, so that's good :-) You're a trooper! Keep hanging in there!
Yay for good blood sugar!!
