This is a milestone for sure. I am half way through and I feel like after tomorrow I will be able to be more excited and calm about my pregnancy. The word "normal" is mentioned a lot throughout this blog. Nothing about this has been normal for me. Perhaps after tomorrow though it will become more "normal". I am so excited to see the little one- it has been far too long! Thank you to those of you who have allowed me to be realistic, cautious, sarcastic & given me space. You know who you are.
I felt the Ninja kick for the first time (for real kicks) weekend before last when my best friend Kristy was in town for a visit. Thankfully if pregnancy brain kicks in too much I can always ask her and she will have the date spot on. A very cool feeling indeed. Sometimes he/she kicks quite hard other times it's more like a dance in my belly. Regardless, this little one is still VERY active. I would have no idea where that might come from??
For now not a whole lot has changed. I still feel crappy. I am sleeping (or shall I say NOT sleeping) with a splint on my right hand/arm every night (I know dead sexy right?). It is helping though. I am engulfed by a body pillow from sweet Molly that I have been trying to find that "just right" (think the 3 Bears story) position. Pizza face still rocks on. Migraines have been better. I still don't "look" pregnant, but thanks to friends like Jen I know my ass looks pregnant. haha
I will leave you with a couple funny pictures - I mean who doesn't want to picture this stuff? In addition to a gift the Ninja received from Grandma Mary Ann in ColdSota. Not only will he or she be loved like no other, he or she will know what good tunes are!
