I have had lots of you ask for belly pictures. Here is one we took in Delhi a weeks ago. My one request is that you leave a comment. I think letting me know people are actually reading has always been important to me. But even more so now that I am half a world away from most of you. It makes me feel more connected if I know you dropped by and are interested.
This pregnancy is going farely smooth. A few occasional bouts of acid reflux, I am sure more of that is to come. It’s getting harder to pop my back when I lay down cause everything is all moved around inside. I have to do the ol granny roll when getting out of bed or I will pull a stomach muscle. ( y’know the one where you roll on your side and push yourself up).
Baby moves all the time. Especially when I am resting. Josiah and A have felt it kicking around. The night before the ultrasound video below I had some spotting and went in for an emergency appointment. I have never had spotting in pregnancy, though I know some women have it all the way through a healthy one. So I freaked. But as I lay on the table about to get a ultrasoound to check on things Baby started shifting sleeping postions and sqiurmng around. Then I acually got to see it on the screen sleeping on its side, kicking it’s legs and rolling over. It was so great to find out that nothing was wrong. But even better to see it move and feel it at the same time.
M asks every other day how much longer it’s going to be. He is so excited. Vange kisses and waves at the belly. She looks in my belly belly button as if it were a peephole on a door. Must be a funny looking baby to her.
We are excited to meet this little person. Josiah was just saying the other day, after the scare, that it’s crazy to think a new little person packaged up with so much personality and wonder is gonna join our dynamic “Cinco”. Each of the three have so much to see and get to know and now a 4th will be here to discover in new ways, new joys.
