8 1/2 months along as of yesterday! Even though the time has flown by and I’m trying to cherish every moment with mini babe growing inside of me, the plain ol’ uncomfortable stages of pregnancy have hit.
Trying to paint my toe nails; forget it. Sleeping through the night; I wish. Walking around SeaWorld for a few hours; ouch!
Getting simultaneously punched in the hip and kicked in the ribs; check. Feeling like my lungs are being crushed; yup. Waddling like a penguin; it’s cute right?!
I’m definitely feeling the pressure of mini babe working his/her way down, my hips and pelvic bones are aching. For the first time in any of my pregnancies, my fingers are starting to swell. Nothing too crazy or worrisome but enough to make my half a size too big wedding ring hard to take off.
We’ve finally started getting things together for mini babe (see my 5 must have picks) and have pre-registered at the hospital. D-day just keeps inching closer and closer. I’m guessing (and hoping) that I only have about 4 weeks left, I never make it to my due dates, please don’t let this baby be the crazy exception that drags it out until 41 weeks!
