Yogurt kind of helped for me — drink lots of water. They say the more heartburn = lots of hair on baby. My heartburn was killer and my kid is a monkey
I can’t eat yogurt :( I don’t know why, but I haven’t been able to eat it since I’ve been pregnant. She just doesn’t like it, I guess? But yeah I never seem to drink as much water as I should so I’ll definitely start drinking more, especially if it helps with that. HAHAH yeah I’ve heard that, and it’s funny because I had an ultrasound earlier today and the lady was able to see the hair on her head and said she definitely has a lot of hair so I’m not at all surprised. BUT IT’S JUST SO DAMN PAINFUL.
My mother apparently had extremely bad heartburn with me, so now she has no sympathy at all for this torture I am going through. We just ran out of milk too and she said she’ll “get some later" (even though it’s become so painful that milk barely even helps but it is better than doing nothing sooo)
If you have never experienced heartburn to this degree, well then you are the luckiest person in the world. THIS HURTS MORE THAN ANYTHING, EVER. It kind of feels like I’m getting stabbed in the chest (not that I know what that feels like), but I’m pretty sure not even that would be this painful. Hands down the worst pregnancy symptom for me.
OF COURSE she turns the night before my ultrasound. I know she turned last night because I can always feel her hiccup on the right side of my belly, where her head used to be, and then it wasn’t until last night that I started feeling them really low, like right above my pelvic bone.
So now I don’t know if I’ll be getting a c-section. I have another appointment tomorrow with my OB and we will talk about it then. So if I am having one for whatever reason, I will know the date of it tomorrow. If not, well then it’s whenever she decides to pop out!
She’s around 6 pounds and 2 ounces as of right now. She has lots of hair on her head and really chubby cheeks. She’s so precious, I love her so much :’)
I don’t watch 16 and Pregnant or whatever the show is called, but Caroline told me about how a girl on there was anorexic and refused to eat even though she was pregnant and knew that was obviously bad for her baby. I don’t care what problems you had prior to getting pregnant, but it’s called getting the fuck over it. You shouldn’t be having a child if you can’t even do what’s best for them and their health. And don’t say to me “Oh it’s harder than you think/it’s an actual problem/it’s not her fault/etc.” because I had an eating disorder before getting pregnant, but no matter how I feel about myself or my body, my child and especially the health of my child will always be more important than my insecurities. Having an eating disorder fucks the person who has it up, imagine what it does to a developing fetus. Having to gain weight isn’t easy. Maybe for some, but I’m sure not for most. It’s hard having to look in the mirror and see myself get bigger. It’s hard to step on the scale and see the number go up. It’s hard having my mother down my throat all the time telling me that I’m eating too much (even if I happen to be losing weight), but am I going to stop eating because of any of that? No. Because I care more about my child than whatever irrational thoughts I happen to have about my body.
I’m attempting to fold them, but it’s taking forever because every time I pick something up, I just stare at it in disbelief. Not only can I not believe that I’m going to have a little babe in just a few weeks, but that she’s going to be wearing these itty bitty clothes. They are all so tiny! :’)
