I can also feel her scraping my belly as she shifts positions, which is surreal.
Today I saw that my belly shape was distorted more to the right side because of the way she was laying. I rubbed my belly a bit and watched it morph back into a rounder shape. Fuh-reaky, but cool!
This evening Em again asked when her baby sister would arrive, and I explained that we had to wait for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and then she'd be here a little while after that. "But what about Valentine's Day?" With my February 5th due date, I assured her that Mimi would be here before then. I don't know how much Em really grasps the concept of a calendar and holidays, but she seems placated with how I explained the timing tonight.
I haven't mentioned Brent much in these updates, but I assure you that he's excited about the pregnancy and Mimi's arrival. As cautious as I am with what I do and don't do while pregnant, he can be even more protective, like worrying that I might get too cold walking in the community Halloween parade last weekend, reminding me to take my vitamins, not letting me carry laundry down the stairs. He's the cutest, and I can hardly wait to see him cuddle with our next little squishy newborn.
