Water retention, acid reflux, shortness of breath…..

Well you name it, I have it!  I woke up on Wed. and I couldn’t find my ankles.  I have legs that look like tree trunks!  It doesn’t stop there either.  The water retention goes into what was once a cute butt and into my back.  I feel like a camel carrying water on my  back.  I have bathroom and shower privileges, however it’s not much of a privilege when you literally can’t catch your breath after you finally get back into bed.  That’s not the worst of it though.  The heart burn and acid reflux is enough to kill you.  Just yesterday I had some acid reflux (for those of you who don’t know what this is, it is like puking in your mouth with out any warning what so ever)! After wards there was something left in my mouth.  It was a piece of corn…….it had been 2 days since I had corn!!!!  My husband, you know the comedian, asked me if I ate it afterwards.  Gag, gag, gag!!!!!  Now, I don’t want to sound like such a complainer.  I know this will all be worth it in the end,  I really do.  But for now, it feels good to get some of this off of my chest.

By the way…..I reached 30 weeks yesterday!!!!!Yeah!!!!!I seem to be keeping all the doctors and nurses on their toes with contractions.  But the babies are doing well and are still cooking away.  Every day is another day and I am thankful for that.  I’ll keep you posted, until then keep up with those prayers and good thoughts.  It’s really helping me.  Love you all-
