Yes, I know I'm huge. If I somehow wasn't aware of this I would be because a teacher at Aubrey's school likes to act like I'm the biggest pregnant woman she has ever seen every time I drop Aubs off. The first time I didn't mind but after the fifth I started to get a little annoyed. Not only do I look big but I am really starting to feel it. I've been having a lot of sciatic nerve pain which I had when I was pregnant with Aubrey too but this time it is much worse and more consistent. I think it's because I am getting up and down from sitting on the floor to standing a lot more often this time. Actually I can't think of any reason why I would have sat on the floor last time at all. Now a days I'm lucky if I can go an hour without sitting on the floor.
Sleep has also been pretty bad. I have a hard time falling asleep. We usually go to bed around 10:30 or 11:00 and I'm lucky if I can fall asleep by midnight. Then I'm up about every two hours to pee or adjust my position. I think my brain is somehow trying to prepare me for those sleepless newborn days. I'm okay waking up in the morning it is just around 3 in the afternoon or so that I start to lose all of my steam.
Okay enough complaining- do you want to hear something positive? We are going for a 4D ultrasound on Thursday! I love those things. Yes, they are a little bit freaky but I also think that they are pretty amazing too. We are bringing Aubrey with us which should be interesting. The place is pretty laid back so I think she will be fine. Maybe this will help her connect the dots a little bit too. Now when we ask her where her baby sister is, she lifts up my shirt or taps my belly which I think is pretty cute. I know she won't really totally get it until we bring the baby home and then the baby never leaves but you know, whatever helps.
