 Umm...those are my ribs

Dear sweet little baby Malachi, I love feeling you move I love all of the nurturing feelings that go along with carrying you inside of me and honestly - I will miss it. As excited as I am to meet you (in ten weeks or less!!), I know there will be a slight feeling of leaving something so very precious behind. And yet.... Can I just kindly ask that your favorite cuddle spot be changed? You see, those are my ribs. That area that you love to burrow under and squirm and hang out - yeah, that would not be your mama's number one choice for you. You know that oxygen that you get? It pretty much sustains your life. In order for you to get that, I must be able to breathe it. Just a little detail. When you compromise my breathing capabilities by cuddling up under my ribs, it does affect you too, love. I would ask that you stay off from my bladder as well, but I'm afraid I can't have it both ways. I'm so short torsoed that I'll have to take one or the other... Many thanks, grins and smiles, Your rounding out mama

So sweet! It is the most amazing feeling in the world to be carrying a little life inside you.

Thought of you yesterday during yet another conversation about people who enjoy being pregnant. I love kids and am pretty open to any # of them running around our house, but pregnancy... I'm not a fan.

better listen to your mama- malachi!! Haha! I know the feeling all to well- it's funny hearing you talk about it but not so fun for you to experience it I'm sure!

Oh, Malachi! You are just growing like a weed, aren't you? This brought back such a rush of memories for me...the uncomfortable jabs and pressure and all that good stuff - and then my favorite, watchiing my tummy ripple as she moved and somersaulted inside. What a miracle.
