SHE’S GRABBING MY INTESTINES!

Okay, that is probably not true or even possible, as my husband reminded me, but I swear that’s what it felt like last night. My stomach has not been amazing the past 2-3 days… feeling nauseous at moments or uneasy or bloated like I’ve never felt before. A lot of awesomeness. Anyway, last night I decided to try sleeping in more of a sitting position as I had done very successfully the night before, but then all of a sudden I got the weirdest discomfort. I swear to you, it felt like she was using those mini paws to squeeze my innards. I started whining at a somewhat loud and panicky volume to the hubs… he rubbed my belly and ultimately, I found that laying on my side relieved the discomfort.

I’m sure she wasn’t actually grabbing my insides, but yikes, that was not pleasurable.

It’s funny, while I have not been enjoying any of my GI challenges these days, I can’t help but think in the back of my mind, “is this it? Does this mean she’s coming?” I try to put a kabosh on all similar thoughts, becuase they’re just not productive, but it’s impossible. Every new feeling provokes the, “is this it” thought. The positive… one of these times, the answer is going to be yes!

In other news, I really enjoyed my two maternity leave days this week. Yesterday I got my hair done and I even started working on the ruler growth chart I mentioned at the end of this blog post. Maybe I’ll even get to finish and hang it before her arrival.

I put different widths of tape on the board and left some wood exposed. Then used a mini roller to paint on one color (2-3 coats). Next, I'll take another "set" of tape off, cover up the first color with tape and roll again. This will continue until all four colors are applied.

My make shift craft table set up in the living room. This allowed me to not only paint, but also watch "terrible tv" as my husband calls it.

I know it seems like most of my maternity leave time has been go-go-go, but I’m not going to lie, there has been a lot of this…

Lounging...

Lounging…

And snuggling...

And snuggling…

And more lounging...

And more lounging…

And snoozing.

And snoozing.

  1. Yup, seems like we are on the same page. My first thought when I saw you say your GI has been off was “OOh, that could be a sign!” I do like what you said about how one time there WILL def be something that happens and it WILL be the signal. I am hoping less for diarrhea and more for a subtle consistent period cramps…but we shall see 😉 SOO SOOON FOR US BOTH! Can I just say I feel so lucky to have had you through out practically this whole pregnancy to follow along with and chit chat back and forth..I always get so excited when I see a new post come in.THANK YOU!

    • I could not agree with you more. I talk about you with my hubs all the time. It’s just so amazing to go through all this with someone and so crazy that our due dates are so close. VERY grateful to have you during this process.
