ever widening

My third trimester has finally hit me.

I feel as though my hips have spread 2 inches overnight, throwing my lower back into convulsions. You can see it too, up until now I was holding all the baby out in front, now you can tell my hips are widening.

My favorite thing to do is sleep, though only for a few hours. Trying to sleep overnight is painful. This makes my afternoon naps ever more necessary. (Since Maja has decided to try the one nap a day method...)

And worse of all, I have started to retain water. Gaining 4 lbs in a week is not my idea of fun.

Ahh, the joys. I was wondering if you would like Maja to come over to play sometime. We would love to have her for a little while and you can rest.

Aww, Sue, I'm sorry. Hang in there! "If it's worse, it's a sign it's nearly over" (My Fair Lady).

Oh, the joys of the second pregnancy. It seems like everything happens sooner. Keep drinking lots of water! Love you!

Good luck! I'm sure you can hang in there!
