It has been a hectic & stressful week for me.. There are alot of stuffs going on at work and it's really getting to me.
So finally, we are approaching quickly to the 8th month of this pregnancy.
3rd Trimester! Definitely still a dream to me after a long period of trying. I am indeed bless to get the chance to go through this journey.
So for this blog post, I wanna share on some of the symptoms and changes I felt with my body. What are the things that are common or occurs in regular basis.. Let's start!
Weight Gain - Maintain the same?
Bodyache - Joint Aches Are Killing me!
Tummy feels tighter - Braxton Hicks welcomes itself this week?
Swollen Feet & Calf - Walking is a drag now
Fatigue, Sleepy & Insomnia - What a combo!
I find it extremely hard to focus at work or even when watching TV now, without nodding off to dreamland. I am seriously thinking of packing my pillow with me everywhere I go.. I just need to shut these eyes and sleep whenever I have the chance. In the car, in the bus, in the train, on the toilet bowl, under the shower, waiting for the water to boil at the stove, watching TV, checking my phones. Yes, I felt sleepy. BUT when it comes to night time, I couldn't sleep! Lil one has been extremely active these past few days at 31 weeks... Moving alot and gives me lil kicks and punch here and there.. And I realize that lil one does something weird, Hiccups! Yes, the jerking motions happens every 2-3 seconds for about 2mins each.. Not always but it's kinda cute and fascinating.. And it's one of the reason I couldn't sleep well.. When I turn right, lil bean kicks.. Turn left, kicking, lay supine, kicking more! So after few trial and error, I found out that putting a soft fluffy pillow on my left side with my bolster under my right arm gives a nice sleeping position for me. But still, after a moveless sleep, I still wake up fatigue and achy all over.. Soon, this will be over too.. Embrace it as part of the journey!
