Hello there from #babystarlove and I. My little baby is growing as you can see. From the way that I’m carrying, I truly think it’s a girl. Sorta reminds me of when I was pregnant with Sparkle but with less abuse to my body. They warn you that every pregnancy is different and after having two I thought I experienced enough. However, babystarlove is giving me a run for my money. All types of backaches this time around, very low to no apetite, sex drive varies, mood swings are on ?, and the best part is my legs and hips give out on me. It’s so strange, frustrating, yet exciting and amazing all at the same time. Only the crreation and birth of a child can hold so many emotions at once.
Yesterday,my hormones decided to show up.Like right as I was trying to walk up the stairs. I waddled myself from the couch and the minute my foot hit the first step I started crying from the pain in my legs. For a moment, I thought about all the reasons I could complain and decided to just have my moment and cry. But after I cried, that would be it. No more crying about issues I can not change or that wont change for another 4 months.
Poor Stephen, was going to massage my legs but I didn’t even want to be touched. I felt so bad but the pain at night is so unbearable I just try to get comfortable as fast as I can. Speaking of getting comfortable, that only last for about 20 mins before my 1st bathroom trip. Last night I was so tired, I fell asleep peeing. Sparkle came to use the bathroom and asked mommy why are you eyes closed? Help me Jesus!
Through all the pain and aches I can’t wait to meet this little person who is going to change our lives. The kicks are coming at me strong and consistent these days. We missed our heart dr. appointment, long story. Although I can reschedule and plan too, apart of me is already claiming what I know to be true. This baby is blessed and covered. Can I add not knowing the sex of the baby adds so much excitement to all of this. I’m actually not as anxious to know as I thought I would be.
Cant wait to see this little face at the next doctor appointment next week. Happy 24 weeks, babystarlove.
