Huge monster baby update

Today was my growth ultrasound for Miss Kymber Mae. (AKA huge monster baby)
I thought that I would write a post to let everyone know what has been going on here.
First of all her stats:
She weighs approximately 6 lbs 6 oz
Her measurements put her at 36 weeks and 2 days. (I am only currently 34 weeks and 2 days.)
Heartbeat was 160 BPM
She is still in breech position.
Everything is fine with Kymber. She looks healthy and is maturing the way she should. They are not changing my due date (it is still March 28th) but just saying she is a big girl.
I unfortunately have been in pretty excruciating pain and very miserable. I guess I will start at the top and work my way down for y'all.
I have remained dizzy & lightheaded for the last 2 weeks (super fun when trying to take care of daily family life.)
My shortness of breath has been much worse along with serious chest tightness/pain/discomfort. I have also been battling nausea again on top of the heartburn/reflux thing.
I have been going to physical therapy once a week to manage the hip and back pain. I have problems with both hips now (one is externally rotated and one internally rotated) I also have a hip impingement going on. I have also messed up my sacral area (probably in trying to compensate for the hip pain.) There is an upslip in my right lower back as well. I now have one leg that is about an inch longer than the other. Therapy has been helping but not enough to allow me to function in daily life chores.
I will also be adding a weekly chiropractor appointments into the regimen to try to bring some added comfort.
To wrap all that up with a pretty bow, I am really a miserable mess. I am grumpy even when I am trying not to be. I could cheerfully hibernate for the next few weeks.
I remain thankful to Ben who fortunately takes his vows of in sickness and in health very seriously. I couldn't have done this without his help.
I am also so very thankful for all the friends and family checking in on me. I greatly appreciate all that you guys have done.
For those of you who don't know me well but have been praying for comfort, the baby, and I, well I also really appreciate y'all too!
I thought that I would type all this out to avoid having to repeat the same old sob story over and over.
I lose sight of the fact that this is only temporary and soon I will have the best present (and relief.)
So stay tuned and I hope old Jamie will return very soon!
Oh and I got a very blurry face shot of Kymber for you today too!
