my belly is growing at a rapid rate. i had to break down and buy a new pair of pants. the jeans i bought a month ago are still to large for me and i feel even more frumpy when i wear them, which was not the style i was going for.
the babe is cramping my innards now. i get very strange ramblings and gurgles and bubbles after i eat or drink anything. as if the babe is squishing my stomach and intestines to the point that there's no room for movement. it's a very strange feeling...
kix likes hiding in my ribs. which isn't the most comfortable thing! he/she spends more of the time there, although last night as i was sitting, all of a sudden i started feeling my torso moving forward. i kid you not, this child was pushing so hard on my left hip bone that it pushed my torso forward! it was crazy!
i truly can't wait to meet this child. the personality is already showing through. i can already feel steve's playfulness and my stubbornness. i know it sounds crazy, but i do.
relaxing time isn't very relaxing anymore. i can't get comfortable on the couch or in bed. i try hard, but nothing seems to work. so i spend most of my evening on my exercise ball and in bed, i just flip from side to side. it's hard to think that i could have 8 more weeks left. i'll be patient, but i'm ready. i want to meet my child. i want to be a nurturing momma.
