It's official. I am huge! It is still so shocking to me to see my belly in the mirror. Or when I am sitting down and look down and see myself at a certain angle. YIKES! My baby girl is growing that is for sure. And my baby girl loves kicking the shit out of my ribs...but only on the right side. She is good at it too. There is no doubt she is strong. My ribs have been super sore...even to touch the area from the outside brings discomfort. But I am not complaining. I love to feel here and it puts me at ease because if she weren't moving, I would be freaking out and stressing like a damn crazy person! She is definitely starting to drop a little which is exciting. I get some pain in my hips and lower back, but nothing that I can't deal with since I am used to pain from being in the accident. I do have to say that the anticipation of her coming very soon is just overwhelming me. I have been having dreams like crazy about her arrival. Some births are natural, but the last couple were c-section. And in all the dreams, she is beautiful! The other night she was kicking and moving like crazy and it seriously felt like she was going to push her hand right out my va-ja-ja! It was the craziest feeling ever.
Nothing new and exciting from the appointment yesterday. It was actually extremely short. A lot of waiting for five minutes. I love never feeling rushed out of there. My doctor is awesome. She is always asking if I have questions or concerns and would sit with me for a half an hour or longer if I needed. She was cute yesterday and grabbed my belly and told me how cute it was. She measured and said I looked good, still small. And Skylar's heartbeat was strong just like always. Next week, Group B strep test. Not really looking forward to that much. I just can't believe that from here on out, I go in every week. Everyone in my family keeps saying, "She can come anytime now." That is so crazy! I have Skylar's bag packed - her little outfit all picked out and everything. Now I guess I should take the time to get me situated. I know what I want to pack, I just haven't done it. That is the procrastinator in me!
OK, enough rambling. Here are the pictures of my GIANT belly - proof my baby girl is definitely growing!
