Baby's size: Carrot.

Next appointment: August 4.

Total weight gain: Not sure - I'm away on business with no access to a scale. I feel like a beached whale, though.

Exercise: Walking, lots of walking. So much walking that my feet keep swelling up. They look like they belong to a Hobbit.

Sleep: The hotel where I'm staying has a cloud bed. It's heavenly. Still not getting great sleep, though, as I'm wrestling with my new CPAP machine. It makes me feel claustrophobic a lot of the time.

Food cravings: Meat, seltzer, fresh fruit.

Symptoms: Swollen everything.

What I'm loving: In an odd way, finding out that I do have sleep apnea has been a good thing. It explains a lot of what's been going on with my body. Also, I feel pretty awesome that I got the testing done AND got a CPAP before I boarded the plane earlier this week. (I rock.)

What I'm not loving: The mean girl co-worker who's making this trip hellish. Are we in high school again? Because that's what it feels like.

What I'm looking forward to: GOING HOME.

Best moment this week: The triumphant acquisition of the CPAP machine.


  1. Well done getting an appointment and a CPAP all sorted so quickly! I am glad it is helping, even if you do have to wrestle it and it makes you claustrophobic. I saw one of those machines years ago- my uncle had sleep apnea. I think an aunt also has or had it. I totally get the claustrophobic thing though- I think I would struggle having something in my face like that.

    1. It's just awful. It takes so much to turn off your head and be able to forget there's this plastic mask shoving air into face.
