Are you trying to beat me up on purpose? You've been so active, today! Seriously, I started feeling you moving around and kicking and punching and butt-bumping and head-butting at like 6 AM this morning - and now, 16 hours later, you haven't gone more than 5 minutes all day without reminding me that you're there! Dang, girl! You'd think you were on a sugar or caffeine high, but I promise, I haven't indulged in much of either today!
And about those sharp kicks that feel like they're dislocating majorly necessary parts of my body: what gives? I love your gentle flutter kicks...but really, when you kick me hard enough to wake me up and double over in pain, it makes me think you're mad at me or something. Bunny, you are too funny, sometimes! Seriously...I slept pretty crappy last night, so d'ya suppose you can cuddle in for a nice long nap with me tonight instead of practicing your karate on my ribs?
Reader Response time - how many of you ladies who are currently pregnant, or have been pregnant in the past - felt like your baby was actively trying to beat you into submission??
And about this whole weight gain thing...on Saturday, I shared with the girls that I was up to 130. Now, three days later, I'm up to 135. Seriously. Five pounds in 3 days? How is that even possible? And I'm not bloated or constipated or anything. What the heck did I eat? A whole ham?! I can just picture you in there, Bunny, with your big ol' straw, sucking your fill of food out of my tummy so I get hungry and gorge again. Too cute...but by the end of this, Bunny, you're going to be around 8 pounds, while I'm going to qualify as a Sumo wrestler!! I'm starting to get a bit horrified!!
Love and pats to you, Bunny. You just keep going strong in there! I can't wait to see you again at our next ultrasound next week! (Which reminds me that I still need to reschedule that since we won't get back from PA and visiting your Grandma and Poppa until Wednesday morning, which makes a Tuesday morning appointment kinda hard to keep. Luckily, they schedule pretty fast, so we'll try for Thursday or Friday instead!)
