so i have noticed that my belly keeps changing size. in the am it is small hard to tell if i have a post baby belly fat style bump or a baby bump, when at work within hrs i look like i am about 6-7 mo pregnant. 

and it HURTS. i am on my feet or sitting upright all day, i get sharp pains in my hip/.thigh/tummy area. and it hurts to walk or bend.

yesterday i came to work and felt dizzy, hard a hard time thinking straight and ended up going home at 10:30 am. by 2:30 i was having a hard time staying awake. ds6 came home early because school was out early, and played with ds2, and i started falling asleep, i couldn't seem to stay awake.

when dh got home at 5:30, i went straight to bed, and slept until this morning. ( he said i was snoring so bad he had to go sleep on couch, i NEVER snore)

is something wrong with me or am i just overdoing it? i work 9-5 mon-fri some weekends. i get no rest until bedtime for kids at 8:30. go, go, go.

  1. I would talk to our dr. If you're worried. I feel like mine does that too. Not drastic but a difference for sure.  I think gravity has a hand in why its bigger at the end of the day.

i am thinking i could be retaining too much water or have hypertension or something. i am SO ready to be done work, don't get me wrong, i am a hard worker, and i enjoy bringing home a paycheque, but i am just exhausted these days.
