Disgusting details, it you don't like blood, don't read:
I can't get rid of bloody noses. I have had a bloody nose everyday for the last month. It is only my left side of my nose that gets it. So far they have been tolerable, until today. I got home from work and felt like I needed to blow my nose, and it was straight blood. After blowing it is just ran down my face, nothing I did even slowed it down for about 20 minutes. Now I am afraid to blow it or sniff. It sucks. To make matters worse I keep coughing up blood from my throat from drainage, isn't that nasty. I now have to also get blood stains out of my shirt and I have splatter spots all over my bathroom and kitchen floor. Guess I will be scrubbing my floors on Saturday.
Anyway, nothing to update you on. I feel huge. The heartburn has kicked in full force. I can't sleep. I pee all night. I have extremely bad restless leg syndrome. My ribs are killing me again. I am constantly dying a thirst. Other than that life is grand!
I have two more days of work, and then I am off for about a week. I do work one day between this Saturday and next Tuesday, so one out of ten isn't bad. I need the time off, I need a break. We are heading to my in laws on Saturday, and staying until Tuesday. They are throwing us a baby shower on Sunday. I am very excited to see everyone. Due to our holidays being so rushed this year, we missed a lot of people, so hopefully we can make some of that up this week. Other than that we just plan on spending some quality family time. Hopefully I will be able to update a little more in the next couple weeks since we won't be home. Our computer (laptop) has taken a shit, and has been out of commission for the last 2-3 weeks. We finally got so frustrated we fired up my desktop from the early turn of the century. Needless to say it's just not the same. Hope everyone is doing well, sorry I am suck a bad blogger.

We now get to go to the doctor every two weeks, I can't believe we are this far already. Yesterday, we had a normal check up. As usual, everything seemed to be great. Baby's heartbeat was in the 130's, I forgot to ask what I was measuring, but since she didn't say anything I am assuming pretty much right on schedule-maybe a little behind yet. So far I have gained 16 lbs since the start of this pregnancy-although 5 lbs were this month. They wanted me to gain 20-25 lbs, so I am right on target. Other than that the appointment was pretty uneventful as usual. The baby was moving around like crazy at the appointment which was good. He definitely has times when he is sleeping, but when he is awake he is a human pinball. It feels like when he kicks my ribs, he then bounces off my hip-it is so strange, but yet awesome. The doctor thinks he is sitting across my abdomen a little. His head is near my left hip, his butt is just above my belly button to the right and his legs are in my right side and ribs!! Good times!! Other than that heartburn has set in, and it is the most horrible thing ever. I have always has a little bit of a problem, but not like this. I wake up and can taste it-it is so disgusting! Tum.s have become my new candy!!
