In the following video the writer of the blog explains his family’s story. Being that I’m now 24 weeks pregnant (and constantly complaining about it, seems like) this all just floored me.
This is worth checking out if you have some time. Seriously.
Our baby girl is moving A LOT! Especially when music is playing. This could mean one of two things: she loves it OR she hates it. I’m guessing that since John is her daddy, that it’s going to be the former and not the latter (he likes the music LOUD. Like SO LOUD you wonder if he has hearing problems). She also moves a lot as soon as I lie down in bed at night, absolutely bushwacked from carrying her around all day. I’m still at the point where it doesn’t wake me up which I’m betting will end soon. Oy. My hips are killing me, and I finally understand WHY pregnant ladies waddle. I always assumed it was from the extra weight but now I see that it’s really more of a LIMP. I also have a really, really sore spot on my spine and I wish that John would just crack my back for me already but no dice.
I really think that everyone has miscalculated how far along I am in this pregnancy. I fully expect to be holding a baby in my arms sometime in July. Humph. See? Complaining! About the miracle of life! So I need to give mad props to my BFF Lily because she’s not only set to deliver #2 in a matter of weeks, she just had major dental work on top of it all (root canal!). And let’s not forget that she’s spent the last 19 months teaching Isaboo CHINESE. And then, only a few months after giving birth, the family is moving across the country!!
I suck. Really, I know I do. I’ll shut up now.
p.s. At least pregnancy hasn’t diminished my ability to RULE at games (so what they were designed for 10-year-olds?)!!
