just some observations about being seven-and-a-half months pregnant ::
my stomach is kinda lopsided, towards the left. she seems to be huddled on the left-side, and she sure does move a lot on the left (very rarely on the right).
besides kicking she is somersaulting and thudding around in my stomach. literally, my whole body will jolt at some of her kicks/punches. what is she doing in there??
my organs have moved around in my body --> digestion does not work as it used to.
stomach is getting a tad bit hairy. gross.
lying on my left is supposed to be more comfortable but not so. yes, lying on my right does make me want to pee (pressure on the bladder) but i'm on my right side more ... maybe because she takes up so much dang room on my left side!
i function better if i sleep in until at least 8am. otherwise, i have to nap during "postcards from buster" (one of the boy's favorite shows on pbs).
greek style plain yogurt mixed with ripe white nectarines really hit the spot. get 'em at tj's!
the girl hiccups almost daily, and i didn't even notice it until A asked me if she did. at the time i was totally stumped. did she? i didn't think so, but it turns out she does. her hiccups are like feeling a second heart beating in my stomach ... on the left side, of course.
surprise! i'm teary-eyed a lot. during my pregnancy with the boy, i cried when the lakers won the championship ... and, as a general rule, i don't even like professional sports. this time around, i got quite teary-eyed when the curacao little league team lost the little league world series game. sure, i was happy for the hawaiian team, but the look on that poor curacao pitcher's face when the hawaiian kid hit a homer to win the game in extra innings. it was heartbreaking.
