I try not to complain much, but we are 31 weeks today and it's time to whine a little. I work 2 days a week, which isn't much, but it's about to kill me. My feet and legs are swollen and my socks actually hurt from the indentions they leave by the end of my shifts. The only other time I have ever swelled like this was just a week or so before the twins were born, then it worsened after their delivery. But to swell this early before delivery? Yeah, it's never happened to me before now. Maybe I should just be grateful for that?

I also can no longer clean certain areas of my house and have hired someone to help out once a week for the next few weeks. She's starting this Friday. (Cleaning the bathtub about killed me yesterday.)

I'm not sure why, but I have also gained about 5 pounds over the past 6 days and many of my maternity clothes are not quite fitting over my belly at this point (pants and shirts). Sleeping is becoming more difficult due to having to get up to potty 2-3 times a night and not being able to get comfortable. Miss Addie is putting a lot of pressure on my tailbone too and I often feel it pop...which is a weird sensation.

Now with all that said, I don't regret for a single minute doing this. I would (and probably will) do this again (if it's in God's plan). I adore this little girl and I know she's worth every minute of all of this. I just hope I can survive the next 9 weeks!


  1. Hang in there..sorry you are in pain. Hopefully only 6-7 weeks left and then you will forget all the pain it took getting there.

  2. Whine away girlie - for those of us that have been there, we totally understand and "get it". Those last weeks are really really rough :( Hang in there, it will be over before you know it.

  3. I have a feeling Miss. Addie is going to make an early appearance!!! ;)
