Today I feel very pregnant!!

Oh man, work is getting really hard. I had the heaviest patient yesterday at work and was forever asking for help to move her. I then handed her off to a colleague so that I could admit an emergent patient and boy was that hard. I was just about to go for lunch when she came at about 2 pm and didn't end up getting lunch until 4 pm. I was so shaky and ready to pass out from low blood sugar, but I had no choice the patient had to come first. I don't think I will be doing many more shifts past this week, but I will know for sure when I see my midwife on Thursday afternoon. I am so wiped of energy at about 3 or 3:30 pm/am depending on if its days or nights, my back is killing me, my sciatic nerve makes my leg feel numb and it gives out on my and my feel swell like crazy to the point where I have to wear my work crocs home because my untied boots won't fit. Now I am beginning to see why most of the girls don't work past 35 or 36 weeks pregnant, its almost impossible to do it. Plus if on nights we don't have time for sleep breaks I hardly make it home in the morning and my drive is only 10 mins. Don't get my wrong I love my job, but I would love some down time right now too.

Here is my 35 week bump photo. It's late, but better late than never and I am wearing PJ's, but I work night shift tonight and I'm on my way to have a nap.

I can't wait, now that the baby has dropped its putting so much more pressure on my back and sciatic nerve its really hard to get comfortable at home or at work, but especially at work.
