Anyone else due July 14th? Howya feeling?
I feel LARGE! I think the kid is starting to drop - at least that's what my co-workers are starting to say. Sleeping is getting pretty uncomfortable, even with my 5-pillow nest arrangement (when I'm on my side - one under the tummy, one under my back, one between my legs, one for my head, and one for my upper arm to rest on). I actually just got laid off work last week - total shock to me, but the more I think about it, the more psyched I am to be able to take some time off! My company was pretty generous with the severence, since it looks kinda bad to be excessing an 8-month pregnant woman for no apparant reason, so instead of having to go back to work after 8 weeks, I've now got 5 months of fully paid leave. Of course, I won't have a job to go back to, but I think I've got more doors open than closed at this point - and I don't have to go job hunting until fall anyway. SO - if only this kid would make his grand entrance! My vagina looks like some swollen swamp creature thing...hubby was doing some 'landscaping' for me the other night and I was inspecting his handiwork and would not believe that the puffed out alien genitals in the mirror were my own. I *cannot wait* to get my body back! The weird thing is, I feel like maybe my boobs have gotten a bit smaller? Maybe just cause my tummy is getting so big and sticky-outtie. I've got an appt. this Thursday for a checkup and the Group B Strep test...hopefully all will go well. Anyway - would love to hear how you other mid-July moms-to-be are doing.
