8 months and feeling it
So I just keep getting bigger. But it's supposed to work that way (not that it adds any sort of comfort to my discomfort). There are some things about pregnancy that no one ever mentions, and for good reason, otherwise no one would get pregnant. My least favorite right now is sleeping on my side. I can't do it for more than two hours because it hurts my hips SO BAD! And I've been trying to sleep propped up, but for the past two nights it just makes me have contraction after contraction, which isn't really what I want at 36 weeks (though sometimes I do!).
But on the other hand you have really wonderful things, like a husband who is willing to do just about anything for you. And the incredible sensation of feeling little hands, feet, and other assorted body parts moving around inside you. That's really cool. Almost makes the hip/sleep problem worth it!
