The sweet baby’s asleep, the rain is pouring and the sound of it is filling the house through the screen door. This time of year holds a lot of meaning for me, and 2014’s no exception.3 weeks ago
between now and labor i will just be sitting and grunting and breathing whistly through my teeth. so. uncomfortable. i was able to go swimming yesterday with a pal, but she had to pull me up by the elbows every time i wanted to move up from the lawn to the water, from the edge of the pool to the ladder, from the ladder back up to the lawn. i clearly did not build up enough core strength pre-pregnancy to be able to move semi-normally now.
the most uncomfortable part of my belly is how the skin across the lower half is always either horribly itchy or completely numb.2 months ago
Nearly six months pregnant. Experience feels truly complete through existential night terrors that provide insomnia at 3am daily and “don’t keep your basketball in there!” etc commentary from male coworkers openly staring at my lower stomach/upper crotch area, but also swimmy feels and soft kicks from the baby and mah lovin’ husband who loves me and our babe and has been so awesome so that sure balances it out for now.6 months ago
