It is now hard to type around my belly, for it is large. Quite large for having so much longer to go, as someone pointed out to me yesterday afternoon. Oh, how nice and sensitive people are.
I’ve taken to sleeping upright on the couch because of heartburn and hip pain, and my legs cramping in the worst way in the bed. I also roll involuntarily to my right side when in bed, and then wake up unable to breathe. My arms, wrists and fingers fall asleep no matter where I sleep. It is as much fun as it sounds.
Ailments above as well as a no-good unfair cold aside, I am feeling pretty well. I’ve found that wearing my running shoes helps to keep me upright long enough to get some housework done. I’ve been slowly accumulating baby items and making lists of things that we need. Yes, things have been good.
We can feel the babies, especially Baby Girl, kicking on the outside of my belly now. The kids usually aren’t patient enough to wait for it, but Hannah has felt Baby Girl a couple of times now. Baby Boy resides a bit behind his sister, so he mostly kicks her, I think and I’ve decided that this is why she must kick me so hard. He’s pissing her off! Sibling fun already.
We found out last week that my cousin and his wife are expecting their 4th baby in the late spring. I am thrilled for them, and also pleased that we have some family crossed over to the large family side. We really aren’t crazy!
Well, we might be crazy. But not because of the number of kids we have.
I guess things are pretty uneventful in the way of a weekly update. I didn’t even get around to taking a picture last week. I’ll make sure to get one this week. Unless you’re going to tell me that I am way too big…but you guys wouldn’t do that, right?
