29 Weeks

No real pregnancy update from me today, seeing as I’m grouchy and haven’t been in the mood to blog. So, a few pictures and a little complaining will have to suffice:

I’m almost in tears because I’m so freaking pregnant and huge and miserable. Last night I woke up at about 2 am and threw up because I literally had the worst heart burn I’ve ever had in my entire life. I was up for a couple hours, gagging and curled up in a ball, wishing I was lying on a beach somewhere with a flat tummy that was reflux-free. The pain eventually went away after I took a Zofran for nausea and chewed some Tums, but it was brutal. And I’m scared it’s going to happen again tonight. :(

I’m also headed to an emergency appt with my lung doc in about 90 minutes. My asthma has hit and even on all my preventative medication, it feels a bit out of control. So, I worry that if Mommy isn’t getting enough oxygen, Avery isn’t, either. :( If I end up in the hospital again, I’m going to kill someone, I swear I will.

So, I’m a little miserable right now. :/

Anyway, here are a few pics from this week. Avery is a butternut squash this week, which I’m okay with, because at least I’ve finally heard of it and actually eaten one! (Yum yum in my tum with butter and brown sugar!)

The belt accentuated the tummy.  I was in a store and being silly - don't worry, I didn't actually buy it.

The dreaded materntiy bathing suit.

You look amazing, dollface. I wouldn't lie. Let us know what happens at the doctor. Or at least let me know! Oh and...did I tell you I ordered a pair of TOMS? OMG.

brie said...

yes i'm excited for you to get your toms - i have the exact same pair you ordered! i love them and wear them all the time. :)

Erin said...

You look better in a bathing suit than I do. I don't know what you're talking about.

I wanted the sparkly pink but oh what would I wear them with? I don't have anything! But they're beautiful. I can pull off the silver sparkles.

Have your doc write you a rx for a PPI for heart burn. It has saved me! I was literally waking up in the night choking on my own bile it was so bad. I found that if I take a prescription prevacid and a pepcid right before bed I am soooooooo much happier! Don't forget to take it though or it comes right back!

brie said...

krista, thanks for the advice, i think i'll do that. as it is now i'm chewing tums like they're candy. ugh. :(

good news friends, no trip to the er with my lungs - just lotsa steroids. i can handle that!

Oh man! I totally feel you on the heartburn thing! Being pregnant with Camden gave me the worst heartburn! I slept propped up with a pillow, so gravity could help a little... P.S. You look great! Such a cute pregnant girl! With lovely lanky limbs, and a ball belly!
