Round is a shape, right?

I keep telling myself that I need to stay active and stay in shape throughout this pregnancy but it's a little hard when I find myself looking at the pen I just dropped on the floor contemplating whether I really need it. These days it's hard to just bend over and get something and sometimes even sleep at night.

The swelling is starting to get worse as the days go toes look like sausages!!!! It's not too bad but I feel like one of my patients and the whole "elevate your legs" thing hasn't been helping. I sleep with my legs up, I sit at a desk all day with my legs propped up on the computer tower. Still, no relief to the swelling :( My feet barely fit into my flats. If you're a nurse you'll understand, if not, sorry: I keep pressing on my shin bone hoping not to see pitting edema but it never fails. I know it's normal during pregnancy but I get a little nervous, especially since my dad has cardiac problems.

On top of it all, I'm starting to develop acid reflux. For the past 2 days I've been trying desperately to hold my food in during the day. For some reason dinner is the only meal that doesn't upset me too much. Maybe it's because I'm more relaxed at home. Oh last trimester how you bother me so.

84 more days...
