I had BW3's last night and had Graeter's ice-cream for dessert. One or the other didn't agree with me because I kept waking up coughing and on the verge of puking! My stomach finally settled after taking tums, drinking loads of water, keeping a trash can next to my bed, and sleeping on my left side.
I'm also going to have to invest in a foot massager, back massager, and wrap around pregnancy pillow. I've been getting by for now with a body pillow, but I'm getting more uncomfortable the bigger I get. I had a lot of pressure the other night, which doesn't help that Ricky likes to lay so low. I can't even cross my legs anymore or bend straight over because of how low he lays. I'm on my feet all day while I teach, so my back kills me at the end of the day and my feet started to swell. I know I have a lot more of that to look forward to, but I want to be prepared. DH said that he's bad at foot rubs
We're debating on the 3d/4d ultrasound, since they are so expensive. I'd like to have one and always thought I would get one. But everything adds up and we have already had four peeks at our little guy. We're going to have to do our maternity pictures early December and Newborn pictures in January, plus all the baby stuff we'll have to still buy once we see what we need after our shower in November.
Still trying to figure out my Halloween costume this year. The girls' theme is Super Hero's. But I'll be 31 weeks pregnant by then, so trying to find something that works is hard. DH would like me to incorporate the bump somehow, too. For our Murder Mystery Party, I think I'm going to try to find an 80's theme- how fun would that be?!
All of the aches, pains, swelling, constipations, headaches, etc. are all worth it! I can't wait to meet my little man!
