Being old and pregnant just don't go well together!
Add to that this being my 6th pregnancy… oh, boy!!
I am now 5 months along and it's been a rough road. I had the all-day nausea and exhaustion in the first trimester. I also have developed that all-to-unsightly and painful varicose veins with a good amount of ugly spider veins to go with it. (Only on the left leg though!)
But this new symptom… ugh!
I am bloated and gassy ALL THE TIME. It's painful and uncomfortable. TMI, I'm sure, but it has to be stated that this is the worse symptom I've experienced thus far.
I am still able to run on the treadmill 3 days/wk. I eat healthily (usually). I cannot put my finger on it. What is causing this?
My OB thought I wasn't drinking enough water, so I upped the water. That didn't work.
I thought maybe it was the one cup of tea with cream I was having every morning. So, I cut that out. Nope, that wasn't it.
I am on a quest to figure this one out. Whether or not I do, I DO know that a baby girl is in there growing and staying healthy. That truly is worth it!
And just in case you need a lovely pregnancy profile shot, here is me in all my bloated preggy-ness! :)
