being 9 months pregnant is hard

It's not all roses!
  • I get up to use the restroom at least 6 times each night.  Sometimes I almost nod off on the toilet.
  • Bending over is the most difficult thing.  I'm not sure it's worth it anymore.
  • So. Tired.  All. The. Time.
  • Breathing is hard sometimes.  I can't even lie on my back anymore if I want to keep enjoying my oxygen.
  • Can't stand for very long now.  My thigh starts going numb.
  • I can't bear this heat!  Had to go pantsless tonight.
But I guess it's not as bad as it could be!  And as long as the little lady is doing well I am fine with housing her inside me for a few weeks longer.  :)

Everything's coming up Milhouse!

So much done today!

I got up early and heading shopping.  We just needed a few more essentials to be ready in case you come any day now.  So I trekked out to a bunch of stores and compared and bought things!  It wasn't much, but I'm telling ya: having baby powder in the house makes me feel so much better.

I've got what I need to diaper you and clean you and clothe you and feed you and help you sleep.  Tomorrow we're picking up your pack n' play with the bassinet and we will be SET.


We saw the lovely doctor.  He checked out your heartbeat and you sound like a champ.  Everything looks great and he even thinks you are head-down!  I was SO happy to hear that!  I want to bring you into the world as naturally as possible and I'm so glad you're cooperating!


Your dad and I went on a date to the dollar theater.  You kicked your way right through The A-Team.

shower and getting ready for you

Dear Little Lady,

Last weekend a bunch of people got together to celebrate your upcoming entry into the world.  It was a great time.  Friends and family brought you gifts and talked about how excited they were to meet you in a few weeks.  You're gonna have some freakin' adorable outfits to lounge around in.

This was your cake:

Some of your presents:

Your mom and some of her friends:

And your happy parents:

Your parents, incidentally, are currently very busy getting everything ready for your arrival.  It's a lot of work!  We have a dresser to paint and things to hang and boxes to move and clothes to organize!  Things to scrub and stuff to buy!

So you can stay inside me for a while longer, okay?  Get chubby and healthy and when you come out there will be snuggles.

--Your Mom

Hey Little Lady,

The first time I heard that babies got hiccups in the womb I was astounded.  I could not wait to feel you have some!

You sure took your time though.  Seems like every other pregnant lady I know was feeling them months ago.  I started wondering how I would even differentiate your hiccups from other movements...thought maybe I was just dense and I'd never know...

But you totally came through for me!  I'll never forget that moment a couple of days ago when I felt a little bump inside...and then a few seconds later another bump in the exact same spot...and then again.  OF COURSE that's what hiccups would feel like.  Of course!

It was especially cool when your dad got to feel them the next day too.

We're waiting for you excitedly!

The Lady You Live Inside
