Well, hello there 3rd Trimester.
This is all going way too fast.
I'm pretty sure we just found out we were pregnant and then BAM, I can now feel a tiny human moving around in my tum.
I could literally lay in bed all day and wait for EJ to kick me. It is the thing that brings me the most joy at this time. Its weird, I remember waiting and waiting and waiting to start feeling those little movements and now I can't remember a time when I couldn't feel her. It is unlike any other feeling in the world. I love knowing that I am her home right now.
*I am finally back up to my pre-pregnancy weight from all that I lost in the beginning. I wasn't super sick or anything, I just had a massive aversion to sugar. Now I could sit and eat a whole thing of orange cinnamon rolls by myself. And I do.
*I only have one little stretch mark on the left side of my tum.
*The happy trail is still enlarging its borders.
*The right side of my lower back is beginning to give me quite a bit of trouble. So long sweet sleep. At least I have Mr. Murphy to rub my head and tell me to take 3 deeps breaths and relax my body from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. I tell ya, this man is going to be a natural by my side at the birth of our baby.
*My pregnancy brain gets worse by the day.
*The boobs are are more out of control than ever. I broke a
size 40E new bra the other day. I went to put it on for the first time and it just snapped in half like a twig...these things cannot be contained.
*Sneezing is pretty dangerous in these parts. Bad things happen.
*Feeling EJ move is great. Watching Mr. Murphy feel her is even better. The other night we were laying in bed and he was resting his hand on my belly while we were having our night time conversation. EJ rolled to a spot in my belly and it got really hard where she was. He looked at me with huge eyes and said, "Thats her!!! I can feel our daughter, its like I'm holding her!" I love his excitement for this baby girl. He is going to be a stellar daddy. (And quite protective I might add. He bought a sword this weekend which no doubt will be used to ward off future boyfriends. I love my nerdy husband)
