It has set in! Glad I got my Tums on hand, will be taking those with me everywhere! It's either that or I've been having small heart attacks the last few days but I really do just think its heartburn/gas. Yeah one of the many lovely side effects of pregnancy...speaking of which night itches have also struck with vengeance again! Only could my body produce such fierce itching in the middle of the night in the weirdess places (like in between my fingers).
In other news, the 20 weeks are the longest out of the whole pregnancy. I felt like this pregnancy was going by at a fair pace until we hit 20 weeks and now it's like really...come on! They are dragging by so incredibly slowly. I am still no where prepared to even think of bringing Bee home, I have not thought past 28 weeks but still, it'd be nice for the time to fly by and who knows, maybe bring this little miracle home. A lot of people have made comments lately about how big I am (really I know I am quite large) but thankfully it is ALL baby. I'm glad I don't have to hide it at work anymore (which is still going great by the way).
Insomnia has also set in, for most pregnant women its related to the need to pee but for me, my body is just crazy. It likes to be up like every 30 minutes just because, it does wonders for making me feel like a zombie day in and day out. I think I wake up because I end up on my back which is a no no during pregnancy so it's my bodies way of telling me to move. It'd be great if it could learn to do it on it's own while I still slumber but alas, it has not figured it out yet.
I've also been feeling....a little strange lately. I'm going to the Walk In Clinic on Saturday to have my iron tested. I'm on supplements but I don't know if they are enough or if I need to double up but I just feel so out of it. I'm beyond exhausted (I mean it is a fight to keep my eyes open) and now I've been getting lightheaded and dizzy spells, mostly in the morning so I thought it was blood sugar related and it could very well be but I need to get my bloods tested to see what else it could be and hopefully find something to fix this funny feeling. I have started eating a snack before I go to bed but only in the last few days so I haven't noticed a change yet.
And now for my 22 week little lad or lady massive belly pic....and an explanation as to why my back is KILLING me with pain but totally worth every second!
