28 Weeks with baby #3
I am now in my third trimester and with that starts my favorite part of pregnancy:
RIB SKIN BURNING!
Yep. It feels like a curling iron is sitting on the skin over my ribs,
and the flesh below is painfully numb. Anyone else ever experience this?
I have had it with all 3 of my pregnancies. Ice packs are my best friend right now.
That is an icepack in an Ace bandage. I rock that at the grocery store.
By the afternoon I usually have a heating pad on my back and an ice pack on my ribs.
Makes this instinct they call "nesting" a little difficult;) Heh.
I do it anyway, but pay for it later.
Last night I cut out the pieces for a "Mary" costume that I am making for my daughter(she is going to be Mary in our church's Christmas video) and not only did it take me twice the time, but I practically cried the whole time.
Oh the things we do for our kids! Am I right? <--- Rhetorical question.
This is my view at 28 weeks.
See the stains? Yeah, I thought about photoshopping those out, but then I didn't;)
Ha! I figured most of my readers are moms and would get it.
The thing I am really enjoying right now is feeling and watching the baby move. I have been feeling him since week 10, but now the movements are so strong that it takes my breath away (with both pain and joy). I dream about who he will be and what he looks like. I love him so deeply already and know that all my suffering will be worth it...he is worth it.
