Checkups, Vitamin Supplements, Etc.

For this pregnancy, I've been having hip pains. They go away after a few minutes, but they usually occur when I get up from lying down. I just walk them off and they go away. I remember with Marguerite, the pain was on my wrist, and I got it doing something really simple - opening our bedroom door. It also went away eventually. Anyway, so far that's the only discomfort. I don't have join pain (joint pains). I am fat, but I don't feel bloated. My feet are still okay, but I won't be 7 months pregnant until Saturday. 7 months! Where did time go? Which reminds me I have to go for another checkup this week and restock on vitamin supplements. My doctor doesn't suspect gestational diabetes, but she might have me tested anyway. I do have to watch my weight though. Maybe I should hit the gym, but I've never been a gym going person. The only time I ever worked out in one was when I was taking weight training for PE. I sucked at it, as expected. Marguerite and I pass by a gym when we take our walks and it looks like a sweaty enterprise (duh). The guys look like they have coconuts for muscles and are pumped with nitric oxide supplement. I think I'll stick to our walks.

Agh, I had really bad hip pain when I was pregnant with Hero. I would have lunch in my classroom instead of waddling all the way to the teacher's lounge. Phiten stickers really, really helped though. I put the sticker on my hip at night and the next say, I was skipping!

Ooh, I know about the waddling! Thanks for the tip!

Gyms are not very appealing- smelly, mechanical and depressing. Hope you find a way to help control the weight gain. I have nothing meaningful to say, since I never did the pregnancy thing.

They certainly don't appeal to me! Thanks for stopping by, Sharkbytes!
