Quack quack

belly

Ah yes, there it is.  31 week belly.

Heeeeeeey fat girl!”  Said the funny homeboy on my way to the airport the other day.  I just laughed.  It was a compliment right?  He told me I was “stylin and profilin.”  A quick urban dictionary search said it means to “have class; so fresh and so clean.”  Well okay then.  I’ll take it.

Soooo…at the risk of being a little TMI I have to explain something.  I mean I thought I had escaped it this time around but noooo…it’s come back full force in the last week or so.  And it hurts.  A lot.

Don’t get me wrong, I ain’t one to complain.  Pregnancy is good to me.  Aside from the pukes earlier on, I’ve had it easy.  But I have to warn people if they see me out in public waddling around like I’ve been riding a horse non stop for 12 days straight.

Click click and read all about it.  I had this with my other full term pregnancies and read that it just gets worse each time.  Sweetness! 

So today I walked up the stairs and gasped in pain.  I climbed into the car and cringed.  I have to get dressed sitting down as if I’m 90 years old with bad hips.  And yes, I waddled around like a sad, fat duck because my bones feel like they are literally grinding together. 

But hey other than that, it’s going great!  No really.   It’s not something I whine about a lot or wish for my pregnancy to go by more quickly because I am cherishing this time with my baby boy.  Just him and me!

You don't waddle. And you sure don't whine about it. I feel bad about all the lifting of children and heavy bags and cooking you did this past weekend. I also feel really grateful. You're an amazing sister.

I had SPD with my 3rd, but I actually dislocated my pubic bone! I squatted at 25 weeks and felt a pop that knocked the freaking wind outta me. Went to a physical therapist, and my hips were 2 inches out of alignment...so no wonder we waddle! Doc said it will probably happen in subsequent pregnancies. I'm due any day with #4 and have more of the groin pain (pelvic girdle pain) with SPD. Nice part is, it goes away literally right after childbirth for me. Good luck girl!
