If I could fly, then I would know, what life looks like from up above and down below

Everyday I am getting closer and closer to the half way mark in my pregnancy, and the part where J and I can find out what kind of human I’m growing.  Even though J swears it’s a boy…  So I thought I would share some pros and cons to my pregnancy.

I’ll start with the positive, since it’s probably good to be positive.

  1. I haven’t gained that much weight yet– I know I have a lot more to go, but the fiveish pounds I’ve gained so far really aren’t that bad.
  2. I’m eating better and more often.  I’m eating a big breakfast everyday, healthy snacks and trying to eat more complete meals.
  3. I’m exercising when I feel up to it.  Exercising is usually a chore for me, but if I can do a little that’s better than nothing.
  4. My digestive issues haven’t really been issues of late, I call that a win!

And now the not so great:

  1. My regular clothes are really starting not to fit, thank you maternity pants.  Even though the extra fabric is super itchy and annoying…
  2. I’m craving everything I shouldn’t be eating.  Like I would love a spicy tuna roll, a turkey sub, a red eye, wine, tequila, Champagne, and Brie.  But I know it wouldn’t be worth it in the end.
  3. I am tired all of the time, like falling asleep between 8 and 9 is now a normal night for me.  Getting up in the middle of the night, then being wide awake, or feeling like I didn’t even sleep are the norm for me.
  4. My back hurts all of the time, I am getting headaches from lack of caffeine and it is driving me nuts.

All in all it hasn’t been too bad so far, I just wish I felt better, according to everything I’m reading I should start to feel better and I’m not really.  My pants don’t really fit and that sucks, but most of my dresses still fit so that gives me a lot of options, for now.  And on that note, it’s time to end!

All for now,

–Kiki–
