26 Weeks

I don’t mean to sound like I’m complaining, but holy cow I am in a lot of pain! It started earlier this week, and it just seems to be getting worse and worse. I’m usually fine until around 2-3 p.m., and then I start getting horrible pain all around my pelvis/lower back area when I walk. It’s so bad that I moan and usually have to stop — and that’s just walking down the hall! I know there’s going to be stretching and ligament pain, but this is just insane. It is SO painful. Is this normal? Really??

In other weekly news, my bladder seems to be getting a *little* bit of a rest. I’m only getting up once or twice at night now, which is really nice. I still go often during the day, though. I’ve noticed how sometimes when I go over railroad tracks or things like that, it makes me feel like I have no bladder control. Hooray.

I’m really loving being pregnant. I now look pregnant, and I love that. I love that a stranger walked up to me today and said, “It’s a girl, right?” because he said I am carrying high. I love feeling Lucy wiggling around and kicking. I just love everything about being pregnant. That said, I cannot *wait* to meet her and hold her.

Oh, and no call from the doctor’s office this week. I guess it’s safe to say I don’t have gestational diabetes. Yay!

    So glad you don’t have GD! I *really* miss being pregnant. It’s such a miracle. Jeff and I are currently deciding whether we want to take the leap and have a third (and last) child. BIG decision!!!
