Movin' On Up

Farrah is slowly inching her way up closer to my ribs. It's weird. It feels like she is about an inch below my rib cage. Soon she'll be playing around with my bones like a harp. Lovely. I am anticipating a huge growth spurt very soon. The last time I predicted this, I was right. When the ligaments get very tight and sore and my belly starts to itch, it's coming. My ligaments are SO tight right now, I've been quite uncomfortable for a couple days. Sunday night while I was sleeping, I experienced a very unpleasant pain. I like to sleep with my legs straight down and knees not bent. I decided to roll over on my side and stretch a bit. AHHHHHHHH!!! It felt like the ligaments on my right side were ripping. I had to throw my face in my pillow, bite down on the fabric, and scream so I wouldn't wake Mike up. It was HORRIBLE. I took it easy on Monday so as to not strain anything. Later in the day, however, I was hunched over by 8 PM unable to stand perfectly straight because the ligaments on my left side were tight and sore. The skin around my belly button has been a little itchy lately, too. It's coming, I just know it. I'm ready.

That happened to me a lot. If I was standing or walking when it happened, it could easily mkae me drop to the floor and curl up in a ball. Think of it as your body getting more flexible so you can give birth! No pain no gain! (unfortunately...)
