35+3

Hopefully, at my peak at 135lbs. Did not escape the dreaded stretch marks which appeared sometime at the start of the third trimester.

I can hardly walk nor waddle. Sometimes it feels like a part of me is splitting in half. Back strains from the weight. And with sleep comes oedema, tummy itch, hip pains, acid reflux, and numbness in legs and toes. Good thing I don’t wake up so easy with the constant kicks and somersaults.

It had been a relatively easy 2 trimesters, though. It’s these last 3 months that brought on most of the common symptoms. Been to hospital twice in February and I am still scared that a massive bleeding can still happen.

Not long to go before life as we know it will change. Excited, scared, and sometimes I feel alone that we have no family around us.
