31 Weeks

I know, I know...I gave a pregnancy update last week. I should have knocked on wood before I made that post though. All this week I have had massive heartburn, I have been having charlie horses in my feet and legs almost everyday, and now my sciatic nerve has been acting up on my left hip. Oh, and I gained 3 pounds in one week! So much for bragging at how easy everything has been going for me. LOL. On a good note, I did pass my 3 hour glucose test. Yay!

Only 8 weeks to go.......
Pin It!

Yay! My hands and feet are starting to swell during my sleep. It hurts & is wierd. I have my 32 week appt. today! Pretty soon we're going to have babies in the house!!

Uh, oh, sorry you're having trouble! Take extra calcium!

I think I've got sciatica in my left hip too. I can't sleep on my left side because my hip/butt starts to get all pins & needles and feels cold. Is that how it feels for you? Since I can't sleep on my left side, my back or my stomach, I feel quite confined while sleeping, *sigh*.

Congrats on your 3 hour glucose test. That's great you don't have GD.

Oh Beth, I am so sorry! I hope these next few weeks go better for you. Wow, less than 2 months (I HOPE!) and you'll be holding a sweet, precious tiny little baby! YAY!!!!

You are almost there! Thanks for the body after baby link I did it, I hope I did it right!

Stephanie- My swelling in my feet usually goes down after I sleep for awhile, that is odd that yours swells up at night. Yep, not much longer! 2 new sweet baby boys to enter the world. :-)

Chari- You know, I did run out of my prenatal vitamins last week and still have not re-bought them. I have been taking regular multi-vitamins since then. I also ran out of the zinc I was taking. I bet that is what is causing all this!!!

Janelle- It does sound like you have sciatica. Yes, it is a pins and needles pain but also can shoot pain down my leg, make my leg go out and hurts real bad by my tail bone. I have had problems with this with EVERY pregnancy. Hang in there....I am not sleeping well either. It comes with the territory!
I am going to have a giveaway here in the next week or so for a Snoozer body pillow (they really promote it for pregnant women). It is a 100 dollar pillow, very nice! I got mine today and so am anxious to start trying it out and hopefully getting better sleep. :-)

Annie- Thanks! I still cannot complain my last pregnancy was 100% worse.

Trish- Your welcome, hope that helps you.

I'm sure it was from not having the prenatal vitamins! You should ask your doctor for some sample packs until you get more. They have a bazillion of those things in their office. At least you can take something even if it's not the same brand of what you were taking.
