Sucking Wind and the Karate Kid

This little girlie has one heck of a kick. If she gets me in the right spot, I yelp....audibly! It's happened twice so far and the second time I thought E was going to have to pull the car over, he was so worried. It was just so shockingly strong that it took me by surprise.  I plan to ask the OB about that on Friday...perhaps I have a scar there or something which makes it extra sensitive. Who knows...just pretty funny and perhaps a little scary too.

I'm also having a really hard time with any physcial exertion... like walking 2 blocks to day care. Going up the basement stairs any more than twice in a 10 min span. I don't remember feeling this until I was almost 38 weeks with C. I'm only on the verge of 24! I seem to struggle through the day and truthfully, I get the most rest with my feet up while I'm at work.

I've been trying to take it easy as much as possible but then I look at the scale and freak. I'm 4lbs heavier than I was with C at this point. This does not bode well for the glucose test on Friday. I'm pretty nervous about that.

I think the summer heat has also sucked the pregnancy glow from my face. I'm tired and excited to meet this little one. October seems really far away.


  1. Oh gosh summer pregnant is no fun! And baby girl be careful with mama. Give her grief after you come out ok!

  2. I was due around the same time as you three years ago, which was an extremely hot summer, so I know how hard that is! The heat and being pregnant just totally ZAP your energy!
