33 Weeks

This week has been a little rougher than the past couple. I haven't been sleeping quite as well. I have had a definitive increase in trips to the bathroom. I get contractions CON.STANT.LY. When I eat until I am full, there is so much pressure in my belly that I need to lean back just to catch my breath. Oy.

One day this week I was experiencing some semi-intense cramping. So my Prince Charming (who was at work) arranged childcare for the kids and sent me to bed with water. So I spent the rest of the day in bed sleeping and watching shows. I feel much better now and have not had any more issues. (Thank you, Love!)

I have been extra emotional this week as well. I keep ping-ponging between the desire to be done-- have my body to myself and meet our sweet baby, and wanting the pregnancy to last longer knowing this is probably the last time I will feel a baby moving inside of me. I lay in bed every night with my hand resting on my tummy, relishing every little movement.

Saturday was Flynn's due date, as I mentioned in my previous post. I received such an outpouring of love this weekend. I want to thank all of you who showed your support through a kind word, a note, or flowers. I cannot begin to tell you how deeply that touched my heart. It moved this mama to tears several times to know that I am not the only one who remembers and honors Flynn's life. So thank you.
