momma developments: i'm still doing good. i'm as tired, or more tired than ever. basically the best timing to be able to be home i suppose. i can sleep in a little later in the mornings and even take naps if needed. i'm super excited about that. i'm big and still can't bend of course. the swollen feet come and go but haven't been so bad. i'm pretty confident that either my stomach or intestines are on top of my ribs now - so that's pretty sick. i still haven't had the dozens of 'bad' pregnancy side effects that are so common so i know i cannot complain one bit. no stretch marks [yet], no heartburn, no headaches, etc. we're so blessed & i'm real thankful for such good health.
total weight gain: 34-35 pounds so far. i haven't gained anything in the past few weeks. i'm not really sure how that all pans out since i know she's gaining weight but it may be that i can't eat that much at a time anymore. she's taking up too much room for me to be a bottomless pit these days.
a few days were rough this week. my mood was real strange. a little irritable and grumpy and tired and i just couldn't shake it. i hated feeling like that. i had a good cry in a buy buy baby parking lot and that helped. embarrassing but helpful.
