I wanted to take a moment to wish my best friend and her husband a very happy 1st anniversary today. I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I stood up beside them as they said their vows in Mexico. I’m so happy you two found each other and hope you have many more happy years together. I love you both!
Today also marks the start of the third trimester. Holy cow, where did time go? There’s officially 12 weeks left until my due date! Yikes bikes!
As you’ve already read I’ve been having some leg trouble since being in Montreal. Combined with that I’ve been having some lower back pain too. My lower back has been achy the past few days. Sometimes if I put my weight wrong I get a shooting pain into my butt. It sucks immensely but I’ve booked a chiropractor appointment for next week with someone who deals a lot with pregnant women and I’m hoping that will help with a bit of the discomfort.
The second pain I’ve been dealing with is the loss of my brain. It’s really starting to bug me and people are starting to take notice of it. I had forgotten about plans with a friend to see a movie and ended up going with someone else when they had asked if I wanted to join. My original friend was quite upset that I had forgotten our plan and I felt like a giant ass as I apologized and tried to explain how my brain has disappeared and I have the memory of a goldfish. Layne has also pointed out that I ask him the same question multiple times because I have no memory of asking it. The other day I went to the grocery store solely for spaghetti fixings and forgot the ground beef. I’m sure the list of things I’ve forgotten is endless and it’s frustrating because I always thought I had a pretty good memory. It’s even more frustrating when people who’ve never been pregnant don’t really understand what it’s like to lose your brain. I swear I’m not using it as an excuse, it’s a legit issue.
I found a group on Facebook for cloth diaper buying and selling. I immediately went to town scoping out any Fuzzi Bunz diapers for sale as I decided they sound the best from my research. I may have shown interest in every single pair and am now thinking that I may be going a bit over board. They say you should only need a stash of about 20-25 diapers and that will be enough to last and not leave you doing laundry every single day. I already have about 24 that I received from friends who never used them, but just in case they don’t work for our babe, I want to have a variety to choose from. Deciding how many and of what kind and not spending a ton of cash is proving to be difficult. We’ll see what kind of stash I end up with by the time the bun comes and what kinds I actually end up liking. There sure is a lot to know!
I’ve gotten a few comments that my skin is really looking good which makes me feel good. I’ve never had nice skin. The rashy business was clearing up before Montreal but came back towards the end of the trip. I’m not sure if it was because I didn’t bring my fish oil or if it was because I wasn’t using the lemon scrub on my face. Either way, both those things are into routine again now that I’m home so I’m hoping it can clear up and go away forever. I was told that in the third trimester there’s a good chance it will just go away on it’s own, so fingers crossed.
Aside from that, there’s not a lot else to report. Things are pretty standard, I’m feeling huge and the bun is as active as ever. But, for any of my pregnant readers, I thought I’d share some porn for pregnant ladies as found here.
