And so we have. Baby number FIVE is trucking along and she will be here before we know it. Crazy, huh?!
This week I had the oddest feeling the day before my appointment. I felt really small. Not me actually, but my baby bump. This whole time I’ve been worried about gaining too much weight and my baby bump looking huge, but I never thought I’d think I looked too small. Then as I usually do with things like this, I began to obsess about the well being of my baby. Was I starving her?! How could I be because I eat all the time…not always good food though. More impulse foods. Insert peanut butter fudge sundae here. Could she have bigger issues like IUGR, or something else? Was she going to die? Yes y’all I am that crazy! Trying to not to make a mountain out of a mole hill I headed to my midwife for my appointment. When she measured the fundus I fully expected her to say that I was showing 2 weeks ahead like last month, which would really ease my fears. Instead she told me I was measuring a week behind. How is that possible? To fluctuate that much in a month? My midwife didn’t seem concerned at all, but the crazy woman I am worried. Will my baby be okay? Tiny?
Hi, my name is Brittany. I’m a worrier.
Bless my heart.
My how my worries have changed. Confessions of a recovering fatty I guess, ha! The light at the end of the tunnel is that I’ve decided to stop worrying about my weight. Yeah, I’m not going to post how much I’ve gained after this week. All it did was stress me out, ha! It’s time to just let some of this worrying go and actually live life. Trust God.
It’s about time, right?! I know I’m late to the party in figuring all of this out, but at least I arrived at all!
This little girl is SO active. Seriously. Any time I stop and lay down she goes nuts! Last night I fell asleep on Sam and he felt Pippa go crazy. He was like, “Is she okay?” I said, “Yeah, I don’t think she’s a fan of me resting, ha!” I for sure thought I’d at least get one calm baby, but this little girl feels the need to make sure I know she’s here, needing attention and she’s not even out of my belly yet. Oh goodness. Five kids here we come!
In the efforts to make better choices and pop out the chunkiest baby around (ha!), what foods should I eat?!
