I went to the doctor's office today for my 33 week checkup. The nurse practitioner that I saw (they want me to see everyone in the practice) noticed my belly and when I told her how bad it itches, diagnosed me with PUPPS. Not a particularly dangerous thing, but it's annoying the crap out of me!
I'm feeling really down about myself right now. Basically, I feel ugly. I have wanted a decent haircut for months now, but we don't have the money for me to spend on that, so I keep it up all the time, which my husband doesn't like. I can't help it. Nothing else will work. I feel fat (which I know I'm even small for a pregnant woman, so it doesn't make sense, but I still feel that way). I don't have very many clothes that fit me, and no money to fix that.
Not to mention, Hubby's sex drive took a dip in the second trimester and hasn't picked up since then. I can't really blame him. Sex is really akward right now, and we're both tired a lot and distracted with other things. I just feel really unsexy right now, and I wish there was something I could do about it.
I wish I was one of those women who felt all beautiful and empowered during pregnancy. How does one go about making that happen?
