I didn't want THAT!

Remember when I was about a month to five months pregnant and kept saying "I can't WAIT until I just LOOK pregnant?" Remember that? I do. Well, whoever was listening missed something. Now I'm six months pregnant and I finally LOOK pregnant. However, I FEEL pregnant too. Nowhere in my wish did I say anything about FEELING pregnant! Geesh! It's getting very uncomfortable to sleep...and I officially cannot tie my shoes without squirming around on the bed like a fish out of water. It's a site, let me tell you! So, thanks a lot.

The thing that's totally worth feeling pregnant is the trade-off of being able to feel my little trampoline jumper. Yes, that's what it feels like sometimes. My belly just jumps around left and right. It's totally weird and cool at the same time. It's amazing to think what is going on in there!

By the way - this is my guess as to how big I will be when this whole thing is coming to an end....


One more thing. The last couple of days I have been having a very tight feeling in my belly, so I thought that I might be having Braxton Hicks contractions. But....as I felt around a little more, I realized that's not what it was. The left side of my belly was mushy ... right side - hard as a ROCK! So, I'm assuming that our little "dipstick" (you're right Jodie, that could sound bad) is curling up in a ball on the right side. Not real sure why he/she would do it, but it's happening. I wish I could let you feel it by reading the blog...explaining it just isn't enough.

Hee hee, Storm. I was thinking that but didn't want to hurt her feelings. Hey girl, can't you suck it in?

Whoa girl, that scared me! At first I thought that was you.

They had to break Sara's water with Nathan and Joel when she went into labor. That is when your belly really looks cool. You can almost see their butt crack with no water inside. You can definitly tell body parts when they move. It is like an alien movie. And remember Dipstick is running out of room in there. He/she is just getting comfortable.

You guys look great by the way.
See you soon.
Love you
