Well, I can officially say the baby is no longer laying sideways. She's head down. Which is great, right!? Yes. Except. Now I am in SO MUCH PAIN.
Oh my word, I have forgotten how bad it hurts. My ribs are constantly burning; it feels like they are on fire. And that's not even when she's kicking or moving. There just is absolutely no room in my short torso, and because my stomach doesn't just stick out really far (I have no idea why; my abs are NOT strong) then the baby is all up in my organs and ribs.
So just sitting and standing... pain. Always.
And I have 9 weeks left!? 63 more days. Where she gets bigger. And longer.
Dear Lord, give me strength!
I am determined to take it the right way, to not dwell on the inconveniences, but to be consciously thankful for this precious gift. Because it is SO worth it.
Just don't laugh at me for constantly stretching out as far as I can, laying in odd positions and doing other silly things to try to make more room for Baby Girl. ;-)
In other news, my mom has an MRI today; pray they find out what's wrong, and that it's not life threatening and can be treated/fixed.
