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 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…
