Not long ago, I started gaining weight very fast. I used to gain 1kg every month, until I reached the 7th month where I started gaining 2kgs per month. But now, things started to change & get a bit scary as I am in my 8th month. In 2 weeks I gained 2kgs That’s 1kg per week, & I still have 4 weeks ahead of me until everything settles down, I stop gaining weight & get ready for delivery.
Thank you lord for not making me as fat as she is
Til now, I gained 10kgs *screams*. And I have a strong feeling that I’ll gain 4kgs more :S My belly isn’t that huge, & I still wonder how the baby is growing, but everything in me is swollen,& puffed up. Shoes are becoming very tight, I feel like walking barefoot after wearing them for 15 minutes. I can no longer tolerate wearing watches, rings, bracelets etc. They all irritate me.
I’m becoming very moody, staying home all day unless I have an errand to run. I’m having Braxton Contraction where you have painless contraction when your tummy tightens for few seconds & then relaxes. They’re beginning to become somehow painful. They’re not that painful. Guess my body is getting ready. Add to that a little backache. I’m suffering from shortness of breath as the baby is getting bigger & suffocating me :S
Deep sleep is like a dream these days. Remember when I used to complain about sleeping all the time?! Stupid me!!! I want that amount of sleep back. I’m heavy, suffering from backache & my belly really hurts when I try to move from side to side, not to mention my bones feel like moving from their place.
Running errands for my reception in this heat is killing me … Thank god I have great aunts who are helping me in alot of things, but still there alot of things that I have to finish by myself. I’ve changed my mind about having my baby in a public hospital, hoping that things will go smoothly & I’ll be able to deliver in one of the private hospitals out there. Bed sheet & cover has been taken care of el7mdellah, just finished choosing coffee sweets from Oprah & they’ll be delivered to the hospital nshallah, my aunt is taking care of the flowers, my other aunt is taking care of the hairdresser *sigh*. I envy those who will deliver in winter, the weather will be amazing & they won’t feel that tired getting these things ready for the big day.
A beautiful journey is about to end …
