55 days to go! Yes, I am very excited about that. I have never been this big of a complainer in my entire life. My friends and family are probably pretty sick of me by now. I feel like all I do is complain whenever anyone asks me how I am doing. This pregnancy has just been so different than the first two. I mean the beginning wasn't much different besides the allergic reactions, hives, and constant scratching. Then there is the fact that I can't eat peanut butter and have to take an allergy pill every day, the migraines that get so bad I have to sleep with ice packs on my head, and now the random swelling that comes and goes. Well, I guess that all adds up and eventually wears a person out. As far as weight gain I am doing really good. I am still under a 25 pound gain at 32 weeks. However, I feel really heavy. I can't stand for long periods of time and I get winded and exhausted really quick. Any time I go for a walk I start having lower back pain and cramping. Some mornings I wake up and I am just as tired as I was the night before. My feet and legs will be hurting before I even climb out of bed in the morning. I can't sit on the couch at home unless I put a couple pillows behind me because any slight incline backwards makes my face turn red, body get hot, and causes me to feel sick. I was told this and the swelling is mainly happening because the baby is pressing on the main blood vessel that runs down my back. I also have to roll over slowly when I am laying down because if I roll to fast I lose my breath and some times have heart palpitations. So yes, I am ready for the 55 day count down to come to an end. I am ready to bring baby Carter in to the world and lose sleep because I am holding my baby and nursing him in the middle of the night and not because I am breaking out in a sweat and trying to catch my breath from rolling over. I am ready for this to be the last time I ever put my body through a pregnancy. I am ready to complete my family of five.
