Yes this is actual size. I have kankels...( you know, you can't tell I have ankels b/c of them being so swollen). If I am up and walking they dont' get so bad, but having a desk job makes them worse. I am trying to drink more water and keep them propped so I dont' look like this at the end of the day.
Along with kankels when I get hot my back now sweats. I can just feel the sweat rolling down my back. I know now what it feels like to be overweight...a lot overweight. I can't see to shave. One day I looked in the mirror and had fur on my legs. I am tired again. I want to hit the couch when I get home and snooze. Mood swings are back. I cry at even the good commercials. I also get outta breath when I get excited so while crying at commercials and excitement I start to hyperventilate. OH yeh..good stuff. My nose seems to be growing....along with everything else. And peeing..wow...might as well just put a bathroom at my desk.
I had my appointment yesterday and everything is looking GREAT!!! I couldn't be more thrilled. In the ultrasound he looks so big. His little legs are already jammed in my belly. The nurse said he weighted 4lbs 12 oz. Yes..still gonna deliver a toddler. As long as I keep getting great reports I dont mind what his size is...(although small head and shoulders would be great)
Be back Monday...off to a good weekend!
