32 Weeks

Can you hear the sound of my tin cup raking back and forth across the steel bars?? Only 55 days left of this pregnancy - where I feel like I'm doing time. Ok, maybe not San Quentin kind of time, but definitely some kind of county lock up. I'm hoping there will be time off for good behavior.

Due to a mild kind of chiropractic care, nutritional support, epsom salt baths, a pregnancy support belt, nightly back massages from my dear H and lots and lots of prayer, I've been able to get about 6 hours of sleep a night - on average. It is making a world of difference.

When I'm pregnant, I never feel like I'm really in my own body. It sort of feels like one of those giant sumo wrestling suits people put on. See it here. Only you have to add nausea, heartburn, sleepless nights, muscle spasms and what feels like mild internal organ trauma. Yeah, that about covers it.

Even though "I hear the train a-comin', It's rolling 'round the bend..." is swirling through my head, I know this is all worth it in the end. (Johnny can be so therapeutic sometimes.)

* Side note - This week we had a severe wind and rain storm. I watched from my front window as a tree limb fell directly on top of my neighbor's car. Fortunately, no one was hurt. It was almost unbelievable!

Those last months are really hard to make it through when you seem like you're double your size! I had to visit the chiropractor 3 times a week with my last pregnancy because the weight of the baby kept pulling my back out. It was not pleasant! I promise you though, this too shall pass, and you'll have that little bundle of joy in your arms! Hang in there!

LOL! Sorry, but I love the Sumo wrestler part:-) Thanks for making me laugh! Not too much longer and you'll be snuggling that little man!

Amazing about the tree limb!

You DO look great! Huge, but great! I need MORE pictures. Sweet Charlotte tells me to "take a pictoor of me in my red car" I have about 300 now. I do need to remember to bring my camera so I can photograph Big Boy.
