So my daughter has found a way to "stick it to me" from the womb. On Sunday morning I was running around trying to get some last minute things ready for church. I learned that Lindsey+big belly+heels+ running = DISASTER!!!! I went to run in the kitchen to fill up my water bottle and wiped out. We are not talking about a dainty little trip, I fell HARD! At first I kinda giggled to myself because of how goofy I knew I looked- I imagine it looked like a girl in a dress sliding into home plate.
Then I remembered the tiny baby in my stomach who was depending solely on me for protection. Needless to say, not so funny anymore. I picked myself off the floor and went to church, thinking as soon as I felt her move my guilt/worry would go away. Keep in mind, I feel her moving around AT LEAST a couple times an hour- usually more (which makes me wonder if she will ever sleep when she gets here, but that is a different story).
2 hours later, I have yet to feel her move and am starting to panic. I think even my little sunbeams could tell I was stressed about something, poor kids. Finally, towards the end of sharing time, we start to sing Popcorn Popping- a favorite among the Primary. As my little 3 year olds are singing at the top of their lungs, my daughter starts going NUTS in my belly. She is kicking and flipping all over the place- and I have never been more grateful for an assault on my internal organs. I really think she was trying to teach me a lesson about being more careful... and trust me I learned it well! And who else can say they know their child's favorite song before they were even born!
Other than that, not much is new. I am really uncomfortable at night (if anyone has any hints to relieve that, please share). I also am wondering if this is normal: I can't eat very much all at once- I feel like I will explode. Totally did NOT see that one coming! Did I mention I LOVE being pregnant? Such an amazing experience, and I feel so blessed to be living it right now!
We are also in the process of making decisions about what we need to get.
I didn't get a whole lot of responses last time, so I am re-extending my plea: Please HELP!!! Let me know what brands have worked for you, what are must haves and what we could probably skip out on, etc. I don't care how small or obvious it may seem, I probably have not thought of it!
