I can only assume my boobs are itchy because they are growing in size and the skin is stretching. I moisturize them when I do my belly massage at night. Who wants stretch marks on their ta-ta's? I certainly do not.
I'm still breaking out a bit but things are clearing up, I use medicated body power after showering and it helps dry the oily skin.
Shit Happens, Just Not All the Time
Constipation has always been an issue for me, pregnancy hasn't made it much worse. I eat some Triscut crackers if I feel I need some help moving things along. Since there is now a human renting my uterus it feels weird to poo, like what's left of my ab muscles are pressing against Lil One. Now pooing feels like an accomplishment worthy of a trophy.
I Just Threw Up in My Mouth a Little Bit
Reflux is another wondering thing that I experienced before pregnancy but unlike constipation the reflux has worsened with pregnancy. Nothing says "AWESOME!" like a mouth full of stomach content.
I'm now sleeping on my left side at the edge of the bed hugging a pillow. I think I'm getting ready to upgrade to either a body pillow or one of the hook shaped pillows at Babies'R'Us.
My bladder is being squished by Lil One. It's being squished so much that there is no room for pee. I visit the bathroom every 15-20 minutes (if I'm lucky).
Hungry Hungry Hippo
Appetite has spiked and I'm snacking during most of the day. Nothing seems to satisfy my hunger or "hit the spot" anymore.
That's all that I have going on right now and felt you all needed to know :)
