34 Weeks

Firstly, I'm sorry for the mess I've been making around here. I get so bored with the same look all the time and I don't have the cash to have someone else make my blog pretty for me. So, it's a trial and error thing for me to dink around with when I truly have nothing better to do with my time.

Secondly, I've been pretty lamesauce on posting "bump" pictures. So, here's a looker.

I had a doctor's appointment today, and let me tell you, I am NOT going to be using a male OB/GYN for the next kid. Not only is my doc a complete butt hole, but he's not exactly sympathetic to my symptoms and pains. Right, then. So I'll just punch you in the nads next time? Super. I'd change doctors, but the hospital in my town only has one OB, and I've only got a few weeks left, anyway.

Anyway, at this appointment of mine, I tell him my concerns about the swelling in my feet and ankles. I tell him about how painful it is to walk and ask if there's anything that I can do to help the situation. Nope, sorry. It's totally normal for your feet to look like water balloons and to feel like they're broken. Except, my mom and mother-in-law have both told me how un-normal they look and that I should get them checked out asap. My doctor also tells me that I've gained too much weight for my size and run the risk of being a "pudgy mommy" because it'll probably be really hard to lose the "excess weight" that I've gained.

Now, excuse me very much, but unless I'm mistaken, I haven't had an ultrasound since 20 weeks. He has no idea how much this kid weighs, or how much amniotic fluid I have. If the baby is perfectly healthy, and I'M perfectly healthy, why in the heck are you saying words like "pudgy mommy" to me? Now I'm definitely going to punch your happy sacks. He doesn't know that I work out like a psycho normally. He doesn't know that I was in the best shape of my life weighing in at 130 because I was almost solid muscle pre-pregnancy. So, pardon me, but you can kindly shut the hole in your face forever. Thaaaanks.

He also said that the baby is transverse, which is this:

And I'm well on my way to needing a c-section because she doesn't seem to be moving. Nice. 

Well, now that I'm nice and freaked out/pissed off, he tells me that I'm free to go and to have a nice day.

You too, bucko. I'll be back...


  1. Ah, yes. This is actually my FIRST pregnancy where the doctor hasn't made comments on my weight gain. Pleasant conversation right? Good luck with the swelling...and if you figure out a cure, post that. :) You've still got time for the baby to move. Cameron was transverse when I went in to be induced so they sent me home. My water broke the next night and he was head down. Good luck with the rest of pregnancy--hope she turns AND comes early :)

    1. Oh, Jennie. You're too optimistic. I'm actually going to be pregnant forever. I'll be the first of my kind!

  2. I literally LOL!!! I wanted to be pregnant forever with Jackson.

    1. You WANTED to? Good grief! You must have had an awesome pregnancy, then.

  3. Lol! I was the same way withy blog, that's actual what made me start designing them for other people!
    But by now I can say, it will be over soon! Yay! It's such an amazing thing to have a little girl! I'm new to following you, but so excited to see your family grow!
