View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day
Every inch of my body itches. I am not exaggerating. My feet itch Ė the BOTTOM of my feet itch. Its ridiculous Ė how do you scratch the bottom of your feet?
And Iím oh-so-glad they came up with the diagnosis and medication for restless leg syndrome because thatís what I have.
My skin pigmentation is all crazy Ė the scars from my breast reduction are VIVID and usually they are pink Ė obvious but not screaming. My belly button which is totally stretch out flat (yes, itís as disturbing to look at as it sounds) is dark-colored now. Iíve got weird splotches on my face.
Oh, and the sausage fingers! And my cankles are a odd sort of puffy texture. Eww.
Bottom line - Iím frigginí GORGEOUS.
And cheerful. 2.26 weeks until Turtleís birth. 8 days until my maternity leave. But whoís counting?
She has dropped, so even though Iím a bit more comfortable (which Iím thankful for), Iím still getting pretty bad heartburn. And (TMI) it feels like Turtle is living in my bottom. Technically its just that her head is probably nestling into the birth canal, but it FEELS like she is IN my bottom. Itís a very odd sensation.
I did get the best compliment yesterday, though, from Steve. He said, ďAt Willís ECFE class, none of the ladies can believe how amazing you are doing by working full time and working up until right before Turtleís born. I bragged that you did that with Will also. Iím so impressed with you.Ē
Music. To. My. Ears (and self esteem).
