Braxton Hicks. Pleh. I experienced my first "contraction" today. (I don't know why I put that in "" since it is a true contraction in some regard) I'm realizing that my body is finally starting to feel the pains of pregnancy. I get back spasms now when I'm just STANDING there. My belly isn't even big yet. Oh yes, it must be from my huge boobs. (I just really wanted to say that once and half way mean it. HA!!!) I don't like these physical restrictions...I mean, I LOVE to be lazy but when I'm actually being productive I really would like to finish what I start. So, would you like to hear what activity put me into a contraction? I was roofing the house. Ha ha ha, NOT. For real this time. Dusting. Yup. I think that means I'm officially fat. I was helping my Grandmother at her house and as I was finishing the last room I felt suddenly heavy in my belly. Man, that uterus gets hard as a rock. It was so weird and uncomfortable!!! Made me panic a little. I mean, the Dr. told me they are expected and as long as I don't have more than 4 an hour it's okay - I just need to lay down and drink lots of water. I panicked b/c I finally realized that I am no longer in control of many bodily functions. Yes, you read that right...functions is plural. I totally should be at a keg party lately with all my belching abilities. I don't even try to be discreet anymore. Damn, I'm hot.
I'm thankful for my best friend (shout out! you know who you are) to help guide me through these new milestones of pregnancy. It's hard feeling out of control and stupid about some stuff. You can read a book all you want, but it really doesn't prepare you for it.
Other than that, I feel little man move every day now...some days more than others. I can't tell any patterns too much yet, except that he is always awake at 6:30am. It's fun feeling him move around, but still feels a little alien to me. I feel March approaching very fast. AH!!!!
