My Ribs are Not a Punching Bag

This babe has been turning around daily. During the day she's sleeping, and at night when I'm sitting and would love to relax, she turns around and starts jamming things into my ribcage on the right side. My ribs are so sore now. I know, this always happens in pregnancy but I was hoping that because she wasn't doing it, perhaps I'd get lucky this time? (stop laughing at me) Unfortunatly she is kicking, poking, proding, and generally making my right side very uncomfortable. But at least she's moving.

Earlier today I started to get that panicky feeling because I hadn't felt her move nearly all day. I even tried laying down and changing positions, etc.. and she wasn't moving. Finally I just starting trying to move her with my hands. After about 10 minutes of me manipulating the bulge in front of me she finally started kicking me back. Relief soon turned to pain, because she hasn't stopped moving since. Still I am relieved.

Tomorrow I go for my third ultrasound to make sure things are okay in there. They think the baby might be growing a bit too fast and too much. They want to know how big she is now, how much fluid is in there, and how well my placenta is working. Since I'm measuring 2 weeks over still, I think they're thinking I might be further along than they first thought. We'll also get to see and make sure its still a girl we're having. I really hope so because I have no gender neutral clothes. People just don't seem to give them to us, only "pink" and "purple".

I'll update tomorrow on the condition of my uterus. ;-)

Other Women Suck Monkey Balls

Why do other women feel the need to be "concerned" about my husband? Why do they talk to him nonstop until I step into the room, or until I login? As soon as I do, they stop talking. Like they were talking innapropriately or something. They aren't, because I was sitting there the whole time. I could hear everything that was said. Yet these women want to make me think they are flirting. I guess my husband forgot the memo on that one! He's as perplexed as I am about the situation.

The woman online who was all up his ass for two weeks, and he addmittedly was grouping and talking with her because he was up late with insomnia and she was there... suddenly has started acting strange. I started talking with her and we both grouped with her. (we're talking about a roleplaying game online if you don't undertand. Everquest 2) She was a complete and total flake! Everything that usually annoys the both of us about other people in a group- SHE DID! Started to make me wonder why he ever wanted to group with her in the first place! He tells me she wasn't like this before. So why now? Is she trying to drive me away so she can go back to having him to herself? As a test, I logged out. Dh logged in another character. Immediatly she sent him a tell asking him questions. "How are things with your wife?" "Whats going on at home?" Strange things like that. He says he doesn't know why she's fishing so bad. He blew her off and logged out pretty discusted. Seems she only wants to talk to him and be a normal person when I'm offline. Hmmm... Very interesting.

I've come to the conclusion that I hate other women. Sure, it might be that I'm pregnant and cranky..but ya know what? Who fucking cares?! My territory. My life. My man. Back off.

Pregnancy Ticker

I am so tired of doing the math every day to remember how far along I am and how much further I have to do. I hereby do submit to the pregnancy ticker. They say I can put it on my desktop but I'm not sure how, so I'll just put it here.

I had my 30 week appointment the other day and just as I thought, I've gained another 5 pounds. I'm also measuring 2 weeks ahead instead of only 1 now. So, we get another ultrasound! Which of course is making everyone else happy, and secretly me because I'm scared they didn't get the sex correct. One more crotch shot could only reassure me at this point! They are concerned because the baby seems to be very big at this point, with still another 2 months to go. They want to check the bloodflow to the placenta and see the babys position. I think she is still transverse, and occasionally breech. I'd be surprised to hear head down at this point because the kicks are still very low. I think I get elbowed in the belly button more than kicked there.

My grand total weight gain so far has been about 35 pounds. And yes, with 2 months to go I'm sure I will gain a lot more. Not much I can do about it though. I'm excerisizing and eating normally. They have me on thyroid medication, iron supplements, and Priolosec for acid reflux. They redid my bloodwork the other day but I haven't heard back yet.

The good news is that there are only 2 OB's at the practice now. The one I saw for the most appointments, whom I keep waiting to see again... has left! I guess I can stop waiting huh? There only remains the woman who made me feel like shit because I gained 10 pounds, and another woman who I like a lot! (why is it always that way?) She's the one who suggested an ultrasound and stressed to me that they are concerned about my weight because of the baby and not because of me. They are wondering how big this baby is, or how much fluid I have, etc.. not that I'm just a huge fat whale. Thats a relief! So, we go for another ultrasound next week and hopefully all is well.

Things here at home have been.. rough. Much much better now, but for the past two weeks dh and I have been fighting horribly. Not physical throw-you-down-on-the-floor fighting, but the angry hateful kind. He's been ignoring me, and talking online to other girls.. and I'm pregnant, hormonal and insecure. Not a good combination! It was a difficult two weeks and I honestly wasn't sure we'd make it through, but we did.

Well, I'm off to see if Everquest 2's new patch made things better or worse. More later!
