Twenty Four Weeks Pregnant

Twenty Four Weeks Pregnant

This week I was ok with everything. Baby is moving more and more even when I’m standing up. He moves around my belly and makes all kind of lumps that make my skin be very tight and uncomfortable but more so when he pushes on my bladder when I go for walk with my husband. In those moments I need to walk slowly or even stop moving because any step I take could make me lose my control over my bladder.

Now that I can eat almost everything that crosses my mind I’m starting to gain weight so fast, and constipation doesn’t help keeping the balance. I was upset on myself for eating chips and chocolate the other day and I bought some fruits for whenever I feel the need for snacks I can have an apple or banana, which is better than sweets not only for the baby or my weight, but also for my teeth.

I feel large and ugly but looking at my belly and especially when it moves makes me forget all about my huge behind, my few layers of extra belly that goes all around my back. I don’t mind it on others but it’s strange for me to have this as I was thin all my life, and when I was little I looked like this.

Symptoms: I still have headaches from time to time, back ache, acid reflux is happening more if I bent over something, but even when I’m not, sometimes just because I drink water. My heartburn got easier if every time that happen I drink a few sips of milk, I don’t need to drink a whole glass, I can save it for later when it could happen again, so I keep the heartburn to a minimum this way, just a minute or so a few times a day. Maybe if I would drink milk all day it would not happen at all, but milk makes me thirsty and too much water and liquid makes me get acid reflux, so I keep it to just a few glasses a day, not more.
