I don’t know why, but over the last week or two I have become so uncomfortable.
I mean, I know why I’m getting uncomfortable, it just doesn’t make sense that it’s so early. Tomorrow I’ll be 27 weeks pregnant, and I know that when I was pregnant with Scarlett, I really wasn’t that uncomfortable until about 34-35 weeks pregnant.
When I say uncomfortable, I mean in general. In particular, when I am sitting or laying down. It’s like he’s right up in my ribs and I have no room to breath or even sit in an upright position.
Again, WHY SO EARLY?! How am I going to put up with possibly another 13-15 weeks of this? That sounds really selfish, but it’s getting really hard to do simple things. At work all our chairs are elevated and you have to step up then manoeuvre yourself into it. It’s getting so hard to just sit there. Let alone when they want me to bend down to get something or lift a dog.
I guess when I think about it, I’ve only got another 8 weeks worth of work before I stop. But even still. There is still a lot of growing in 8 weeks time and I just don’t know how to manage it. It was unbearable last time and I only dealt with it for 6 weeks MAX. This time could be EASILY double.
I’m literally having trouble breathing to the point where I will be breathing, feeling a little off then I’ll have to take several intentional deep breaths to feel like I have enough oxygen in my body. My stomach is rock hard and protruding, and I’ve especially noticed some growth over the last week! Clearly someone has had a growth spurt.
Sleeping is getting harder. I’m up several times a night just to deep breath and turn over. I am using a pregnancy pillow and it helps, but of course the only thing that will cure my uncomfortable body will be to give birth, and Reece (and I!!) are no where near ready for him to be born.
Does anyone have any advice or tips on how to help it? Please!!
