I feel enormous and have a hard time doing much of anything. This little girl is so active at night and keeps me up while she performs circus tricks in there. It's all knees, elbows, and head so it's really uncomfortable.
I have had horrific heartburn for the last 2 weeks. I have to have Tums by my side all the time unless I panic. I ran out today and had a ball of fire in my chest and was in agony until Eddie came home with a huge bottle and saved me. It was torture while I was waiting for them. Who knew that heartburn could be so unbearably painful? I've also lost my appetite and nothing really sounds good to me anymore. That could have something to do with the constant heartburn though.
I am now about 90 % ready for the baby. We still need to agree on a name, and there are a few odds and ends that I still need to pick up, but I am so happy to be mostly ready. I also have my Christmas shopping completely done. It feels so good to have it taken care of and I know that in December when I have a newborn, I will be so happy that I don't have to think about it.
I'm enjoying my time with my sweet Maverik and we do lots of playing while the older kids are at school. He is a delight to watch. I also have a special date planned for each of my older kids starting this weekend. Although, I'm slightly surprised that I'm still pregnant considering some of the "complications" I've had, I am just trying to enjoy the time I have and make every moment count.
