This post is a bit late, and as I write I’m just about 28 weeks. But, hey I’m not that far off considering life is flying by. The last few weeks I’ve really started feeling the weight of this belly and have been reminded of that oh so familiar pinch of the Scaitic Nerve in my tail bone that hasn’t been aggravated until just this past week. I’m getting dangerously close to the uncomfortable part of this journey and have started moving around like a full blown pregnant lady. I have actually laughed at myself a few times as I’ve rolled myself to the side a bit to manage to get up from sitting on the couch. I’ve even caught myself waddling a little when I’m extra tired. On a brighter note I’m still feeling the baby roll around and stretch which is always a special moment. Although I have made note that this baby is much less active then it’s big brother Jack. This baby doesn’t move as often or with as much vigor. When the baby is pressing up against my belly I really enjoy rubbing over it’s little body and day dreaming about what I’m rubbing. I like to think I’m rubbing his/her back and it I like to think he/she knows I’m saying I love you. Andy and I have made very little progress in deciding on definite names. We are pretty set on a few girls names, but as with each baby, we struggle with boy names. I keep repeating a few names I like and hopping they grow on Andy. Overall I’m doing my best to treasure all of these pregnant moments, the good and the bad, and enjoy my front row seat to the miracle of life. I especially wish I could bottle up the feeling of a precious little life rolling around in my belly.
