Ultra Magnus is frequently active these days. I sit back in my rocking chair and watch my belly twitch and bounce. I feel him/her pressing on various parts of my insides – the bladder most noticeably. My belly is also getting really large; I’ve found that I can’t see my feet anymore when I look down. Also, my boobs are huge, as spadoink mentioned when I saw him on Friday. Even more fun, my belly button has expanded greatly, although fortunately I haven’t yet had to pull out the piercing.
The very strangest part is knowing when the baby is awake. Adam will ask me how I am, and how Ultra Magnus is, and I can switch to this internal check and just kind of know. I have no clue how active is what one might call “normal” but I’ve got a definite idea of what normal is for Ultra Magnus, and for me. Right at this moment, as I write this post, the baby is stretching and pushing on my right side, just below my ribs. Earlier it was playing a game of press on mommy’s bladder – fun for the whole family!
This afternoon and tonight I’ve had a headache. It sucks. I took tylenol for it, but it hasn’t kicked in at all. I’m not really convinced that tylenol helps anyway. At least it never seems to. Maybe if I just go to bed I’ll feel better by the morning.
