I Think My Nipples Might Be Bleeding…

Okay, so at this point, I don’t actually think they are bleeding, but that’s more than I can say for yesterday. As I’ve mentioned, I live in Wisconsin. One of the lovely little benefits of this state is the opportunity to truly test your breaking… or freezing… point. Yesterday was another blustery, single-digit temperatured day, which led me to my most recent discovery. Freezing temperatures + Sensitive pregnancy boobs =What I can only imagine it feels like to sport nipple clamps.

This might sound like an exaggeration, but I’m not going to lie, as I was driving in my freezing cold car yesterday, I literally peeked inside my bra because I was sure my nipples were bleeding. The pain was throbbing and constant until finally, after 10 minutes, my car (and body) heated up. It was crazy. Now, I’m sure you can only guess how excited I am for our upcoming forecast…

That's a lot of negatives for one week... my nipples hurt already.

I wonder if nipple pain is “sick day” worthy…

Anyway, enough bitching… HAPPY NEW YEAR! I have full intentions of blogging about new years resolutions, but I have to finish my list… maybe tomorrow. Until then, here are some pictures from our new years celebration! Nice and relaxed… and the best part, we were home by 1 am!

Did I mention that on top of the cold, it won’t stop snowing??

We get it... let it snow, let it snow, let it snow... but Christmas is over...

Symptoms

There is nothing too new to report. I’m still having the numbness, which has inspired me to add a bit more yoga into my weeks. I found a quick video online of a nighttime yoga routine that I’d like to try and I’ve been trying to make it as often as I can to the studio. As of a few weeks ago, I hadn’t practiced since I found out I was pregnant, and didn’t realize how much I missed it. I’m thinking that yoga will help to keep my blood flowing, etc.

Other than that, I’ve been trying to focus on my diet and making healthy choices. In the past, I’ve been pretty successful in tracking my food using an app called MyFitnessPal. I’ve started using the app again, which really helps me keep things in check. Being that I’m a small person (short and petite), I have set my caloric intake at 1,700 calories per day. Prior to my pregnancy, I was at 1,200 a day, so I feel like 1,700 is legit. I know you technically only have to add 300, but I added the extra 200 because 1,200 was set to lose slightly.

Other than that, I’m still sleeping like shit. Yesterday I slept with my giant Euro pillow under my legs and my head and neck slightly propped. That seemed to help with the numbness, but was still pretty uncomfortable. Lots of tossing and turning. My goal for this next week is to buy a pregnancy pillow.

I also must mention that I think my baby bump officially came out this past week. Pretty much all of my pre-pregnancy pants now need a button extender and my tummy pouch is definitely more pronounced. Pretty crazy!

  1. Yes! I can’t wait to see that tummy. And why has it taken you soo long to get a pregnancy pillow…I swear I told you it was the best thing ever. (Maybe I should get mine out again and start using it!) Maybe we need to freshen up on all the wonderful prego things I have told you about years ago…
