It is hard for me to believe that it has been over five and a half years since I was pregnant with Mister!
This is me, on October 3rd, 2007. Mister was born on December 7th, at 35w5d. Which means I was about 29 weeks pregnant in this picture. Yes, I got a lot of “watermelon” and “basketball” comments. LOL.
My pregnancy with him was not easy. It was my third pregnancy, with two pregnancy losses prior. I have degenerative disc disease with nerve damage in my lower spine. The weight of the pregnancy irritated the nerve damage, causing me to be in near constant pain and occasionally my leg would give out on me. To combat the pain, I had several epidural steroid injections, was on routine pain medication, and under the care of a high risk pain specialist that specialized in pregnant women.
All of that to say, I learned early on that there are a few things that an expectant, or new, Mommy must have in her toolkit to ensure her pregnancy comfort.
1) A pregnancy support pillow. Hubs affectionately called mine “the beast” and would joke about it taking over the bed.
2) A reliable stool softener.
3) A comfy chair and footstool- to get those feet up!
4) Tons of support from loved ones.
