8 is great! Plus an Update…
8 months started with a bang. I had my last monthly check up appointment and was told I had gained 30 lbs from my littlest point in this pregnancy, but have gained 20 lbs from my starting weight. So I am right on track.
*I lost 10 lbs starting out due to sickness
The word of the month is… TIRED
My Iron is low, so I have been taking iron supplements and am back to drinking diet Dr. Pepper around 3 o’clock to keep me awake, or I just take a nap, which I prefer, but don’t always have the luxury of doing so. Thank you toddlers 🙂
I have been waking up several times in the middle of the night with the worst charlie horses. Starting from the very most lower back running through my hamstrings to the tip of my toes. I call them my “butt zingers”. After several nights of these I decided to get a maternity massage which has done the trick. I am sleeping so much better, and haven’t had one since.
If I haven’t painted a pretty enough picture of what 8 months looks like here’s a visual
These girls are so funny! I love them!!!!!
