Pregnancy Week 16

I don't really have that much to share with you about this week.

I'm super gassy.  Oh joy.

My back hurts all the time.

I randomly get super dizzy and feel like if I don't sit down right now I'm gonna black out again (like my Home Depot incident).  This makes me nervous about going out for long periods of time by myself because I feel like eventually it will happen.  When I'm at home, I don't mind plopping my fat ass on the ground regardless of where I am (and Gabby loves it, she just assumes I'm down there to see her) but I don't exactly want to sit down in the middle of Walmart anytime soon.  I guess I should probably talk to the midwife about it, but I'm starting to have this fear that she's gonna tell me I need to go on bedrest.  And I don't know what her response will be when I say, sorry, not an option unless you bring my hubby home.  Cuz let's be serious, it is not an option.  I live by myself.  My husband is somewhere in the middle of the ocean on a boat.  Both of our families live on the other side of the country and they all work so it's not like they can come hang out for four months until The Sailor comes back.  And I need to eat.  So there - not an option. 

Plus, I'm ike 99% sure it's just blood sugar issues, which is normal, so we're good.

And although I feel like a Macy's Day Balloon everyone loves telling me I don't look fucking pregnant at all.  Oh, I'm 16 weeks pregnant?  I should have seen ::insert random female here:: when she was 16 weeks - she looked super pregnant.  But do I? Apparently not.  Look out world, because eventually I'm gonna snap and kick someone in the shins.  That's right, pretty soon someone will be in the middle of saying "you don't look pregnant at all" and WHAM!  A swift kick in the shins.

Then I start trying to like justify the fact that I swear, if you had known me before you woud agree I look pregnant now.  Then the other person gives me this look like - hmmmmm, probably not.  So I procede to say, well, I was in the best shape of my life pre-pregnancy.  And if it's a woman I'm talking to, they look at me as if to say "what? you think I was fat before I got pregnant" and if it's a guy he usually says "::insert random female here:: was super skinny before too" and then chuckles to themself.

WHY CAN'T PEOPLE JUST SAY "Oh you look great!" AND LEAVE AT THAT!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, enough bitching for today!

Until next time...

PS - is it just me, or did my belly shrink between weeks 15 and 16?  Good grief...
