I'm feeling so...FULL today. I'm walking around work - waddling worse than usual - because I feel like if I spread my legs too far or move to fast Evy's just going to drop out! I've tried going to the bathroom a few times, thinking that maybe it's just a full bladder giving me this feeling but it's not helping.
The pressure on my pelvis was extraordinary last night, causing me to leave the couch and head to bed early. You'd think that just staying off my feet would help but no - being elevated at all seems to be painful too. While sitting at my desk this morning, I had the strangest feeling. It felt like she was moving down my body - but not like the usual feeling of movement - oh no. I could feel the slow progression and there was a definite shift of organs and muscles because I began to feel almost... thin? Does that make any sense? I could feel everything in my stomach area tighten and firm and fall BACK in. Like I said, strangest feeling.
I hate to admit it, but it's making me all very anxious that I might go into labor early. I have no idea what's going on in there but my instincts are telling me that all the stars are aligning and I may not make it to April 14th. Not that I'd be too upset by that :) I'm very ready to have Evy in my arms even if my bags aren't packed and we haven't washed everything yet. I really should spend some time making sure to get everything washed and set up though - I keep procrastinating and I need to stop.
The other night Paul & I went to Target to spend some of the gift cards we got at the baby shower. We got the bottles, some creams, hooded towels, wipes and a bunch of other things. I'm excited for the changing table organizer we bought - I now feel like I can get her "necessities" in place as before I was just keeping everything on the changing table. Yesterday Rebekah found this awesome Boppy - so I can now cross that off my list too :) I still have a lot to go, but slowly but surely we're getting there.
