The Burn.

16 May

ImageIt’s late and I should be sleeping. And I will soon. But right now I have a literal pain in the butt from a Zumba workout a couple days ago. I have two XBox Zumba games and was debating getting rid of one because I don’t really like it. Zumba Fitness is a really good work out. And I just look plain cute doing it. LOL. The music is great. The steps are complicated, but cute AND the instructor gives some indication when she’s going to change a move. Then there is Zumba Fitness Rush! The game has great ratings, but I’m scratching my head because I can’t figure out why. The steps are also a little complicated, but the worst part is that the camera moves around so much, and there’s so many flashes of HOLLYWOOD LIGHTS, that I can’t even see what the instructor is doing. Not only that, there is supposed to be an indicator that shows you when another move is coming up, but every now and then they throw in some random moves. Huh? So, what’s the point of the indicator? I did not like it at all.

The issue is, I’m a little sore after Zumba Fitness, but not too much. After one workout with Zumba Fitness Rush…well, I’m super sore! Days later. So maybe it’s the better workout? As my buddy says, “first world problems.” LOL.

So yes, now I’m up with sore muscles. And what better way to soothe sore muscles? Snacks.

I wasn’t going to blog today, but said what the heck.

There’s really nothing new going on. I am still taking a beating from the inside. Officially 24 weeks.

Symptoms this week:

  • Pelvic pain. Hip pain. Shoulder pain (at night).
  • Gross mouth taste — after brushing even.
  • LOTS of movement from the babe. My whole belly is moving with her movements and hiccups.
  • Finding it hard to get comfortable at night.
  • Penguin walk.
  • Hungry. All the time.
  • More floaties in my eyes. Seriously keep thinking I see a fruit fly. Nope. My vision has gotten worse in general. Hope it’s temporary.

I’m trying not to complain and enjoy the pregnancy. I know once she’s here I will miss carrying her. Remind me that in the third trimester when I’m whining about not being able to move or breathe.

Oh, but dear God me. Why did I read this the other day and TOTALLY freak:

I think I’m over it now, but I really freaked out for like an hour.

In other news, I lost my wedding ring. Back in October. I’m SICK over it. Amazingly he isn’t mad at all, but I am so upset. I was at my mother’s in early October, took it off with my grandmother’s wedding ring because they were feeling snug (finger swelling). Shoved them into my bag. Went to look for them to put back on a few days later. Grandmother’s ring was there but my wedding ring wasn’t! My mother has looked all over her house and can’t seem to find it. SICK, SICK, SICK! Really can’t afford to replace it right now, and going without any ring makes me feel awful. So, I am getting a titanium replacement. No diamonds, but it has our initials and wedding date engraved in it. Actually, we probably could have done the cheap rings in the first place. $40 vs $600. Then I probably wouldn’t feel so bad about losing it. *cries* I still hope to find it, then I’ll just wear the titanium ring on another finger, but if not….*cries, cries*

I’m Real Patient.

7 Sep

I’ve been debating for a week what I wanted to blog about. It’s not like I have many choices really. The main thing going on in my life right now is the pregnancy. I’m still awfully sick, but not as bad as I was 2 weeks ago. But still bad (don’t want ya thinking it ain’t bad!!). I’ve often wished I could go to sleep and wake up in March. Seems a lifetime away. 210 days until my due date. But here’s hoping to giving birth at 37 weeks again.

Last week I heard the babe’s heartbeat for the first time. 165 beats a minute. Lovely. I have one of those home fetal dopplers, and I’m trying my best not to overdo it. Listening once a week should be enough to make me feel comfortable until I feel regular movement.

I think I felt movement with the last 2 pregnancies pretty early on. It was about 17 weeks with the first and much earlier with the next 2. So I’m looking forward to that soon. Once the movements start, seems they don’t stop. It’s kind of freaky at first. Like, “Dude, something is seriously swimming around in me.” But, you get used to it. After birth, you actually start to miss it. When you hold your newborn close and they move their little feet against your tummy, you remember feeling that from the inside, and feel a bit sad. Or, maybe that’s just me.

In about 6 weeks, we can possibly find out the sex. Might be more accurate if we wait 8 weeks. But waiting requires patience and I have none. Who says you get more patient the older you get? Stupid head.

Right now, my symptoms are:

  • Nausea. Pretty much all day, but it lets up sometimes. Not as bad as when it first hit, but can still get pretty bad.
  • Constant pees. Like, too much.
  • WEIRD dreams. I don’t want to even get into all that. You may try to have me committed, dear Internet.
  • Strong sense of smell. I can’t stand the smell of soap even. My own body odor turns me off. Great.
  • Getting sick from eating. OR not eating. Doesn’t matter. *sigh*
  • Bloody noses. Oh yes, this is one of the sexier symptoms. *growwwwwl*

I’m just a barrel of fun ain’t I?

Tired of hearing about my pregnancy? Too bad. I’m knocked up and have 210 more days to deal with this shit, so I’m dragging you along.

In other news, I am working from home for a company that I can’t really talk about. Sounds illegal. It’s not. It’s a perfectly legit job and actually pretty fun and a good way to make some decent money. No MLM, no sales. A real job doing “computer schtuff.” If anyone is interested, I can get you the info.

Oh, forgot to mention. I set up one of those annoying baby pool things. You know, guess the gender, due date, weight, blah, blah?

It’s here:

So exciting right? Guess to give me something to check throughout the next TWO HUNDRED TEN days. No prizes. Don’t be greedy.
