What's Going Down

Feelin' it.

33 weeks pregnant today.

I hurt. ALOT. This is gonna be whiny. But it's all I've got to talk about right now.

My hips hurt. I can't sit, walk, stand or really do much of anything without inordinate pain. I hate this part of pregnancy. Sleeping is still okay, as long as I've got a large pillow between my legs. Getting OUT of bed, another story. Especially because it happens several times a night. No, not to go to the bathroom, but rather to tend to children.

Some of us (not me) have got a really lame cold right now and Abbie is convinced some medicine will fix the fact that she's sounding like Margot Kidder. And she likes to freak out about it at 3am. Losing your voice must be a scary thing for a 6 year old.

Packing. Not going well. We have PLENTY of boxes. However, the cold I just referenced has Matt convinced he's got the plague. As of 4 o'clock today, he had packed 2 (TWO) boxes. Fortunately, he got up and packed a bunch of stuff.

Perhaps the only thing more gratifying than purging stuff that belonged to me, is watching Matt purge stuff that belonged to him. He's not nearly as merciless as I'd like (he's keeping tutorials that he printed off the internet that he hasn't looked at for YEARS!!!) but I'm working on him.

The major part of the move is on Saturday. We'd better get 95% of the stuff, because honestly, there's no hope for me helping after that. I'm spent.

Matt took Miles on a fun excursion on Friday.

Go leave him a comment.

Oh honey...I feel your pain. My memory of pregnancy is SO vivid. I'll never forget that hip pain, and the UGH of it all. Will you make it worse if I tell you that my friend who was due within a few days of you just had her baby? He's alright and she's alright. So she gets away with a 7 month gestation. Grrr, not fair! Maybe you'll get some super human strength this weekend to get you moved. You're crazy lady! Keep on truckin!

Oh c'mon Lissa you're like the Wonder Woman of childbirthing. I wouldn't be surprised if you gave birth, plowed the field, and knitted your kids something neat all in one day. Meanwhile Matt will be passed out when he realizes that you're water broke.

If you hurt like I did with Tyler, then I will cry for you. Amazing how 4 pregnancies in 6 years can completely kill your body. Im sorry you hurt, Im sorry you have to pack, and Im sorry that everyone is sick.


I feel for you! Go get a pedicure!

Sorry you're so uncomfortable! I remember that stage of pregnancy all too well. Good luck with your move!

I'm so sorry! So not fun to be this miserable, and worry about a move on top of it. I did that with my girls, and it was just something to be endured. Good luck!

I hope people are feeling better, and that the move is going well. I can't believe the baby is coming so soon!!
