Stop Please...

You know how a few months ago, I was all "kick me dammit"...remember? Okay, so I'm over that. This little boy is either playing soccer in there or training for Riverdance 2018. The kicking to my ribs and my lower abdomen is constant. The only time he doesn't kick is when I say "Hey, come watch this!" to anyone that may be around. If there's a possible audience, then he's as silent as a mouse. But if mommy needs to sleep, eat, work, drive, etc....it's prime kicking time. I know I have 10.5 more weeks to go, but I really just don't know how I can fit any more baby in this belly. I feel so full already, and like my son is part octopus. God help me when he really starts adding on the weight. It's just so crazy that a baby is in there, and my organs are all crammed into the corners as if they are unimportant. I wonder if I'll feel "empty" when he's out?

I just hope he refrains from doing handstands on your cervix. I hear that's rather uncomfortable! =P

hey, you have a turtle picture! how'd you do that! very cute!

and yes, he does enjoy kicking the cervix once in a blue moon, which is a real treat! but usually he keeps his hits to my sides and ribs.

Isn't it crazy how far over to the side they can go?! I was laying there last night, on my side of course, and the little booger kicked my HIP! He still kicks pretty low, not cervical low anymore ::knocking on nearby wood::, but occasionally he'll kick at belly button range...Joy, the rib kicks I have to look forward to in the coming weeks =)

I'm not sure if you mean "empty" good or "empty" bad...I'm seriously doubting I'll feel "empty" like I miss being pregnant...it's not horrible, but I don't think I'll miss it at all. I do hope I feel "empty" like a load has been lifted.

So, can't really say I know what the kicking thing feels like...but if it compares to gas pain, then we can chat. Because I know what that's like. Not that I have it all the time. Oh, you know what I mean!
Oh how I ramble.

yes you will feel empty when he is born, you will be able to see his movements and say "oh so that's what you were doing in there". You will miss it some but you will also be glad have him out! Hang in there honey! Mom
