7 Months....28 weeks.....

So I am seven months pregnant now and officially feeling like I am running out of room....in my body that is. I don't know if this baby is sitting a lot higher than boston did or maybe he is just bigger, but I feel like he is seriously crowding my space. He is in my ribs all the time and the smallest tasks leave me stopping to try and catch my breath. I know it is a little ridiculous. You can forget me working out at all anymore...I can hardly clean the house without becoming short of breath. It really is pathetic. I am so ready for this baby to come...in many ways. I still have a while though...it's alright. I can say that I am looking forward to having my mom come and stay with me after I have the baby. I am definitely going to do things different this time around. Last time when boston was born I had my mom for the whole week, but I was so stupid. I think part of me was so excited to be a mom that I just wanted to do everything myself and I wouldn't let my mom help with anything....I know so stupid....I remember I hardly even let her hold him. I feel so dumb now looking back at it. I should have taken advantage of having her there and having her help. She is the best mom in the world, seriously who better to learn from. Plus I should have let her get some time in with her new grandson....but I was just a little selfish. So not this time mom....I hope she is ready to help me TONS cause I am going to use her as much as I can. And I promise this time she can love, hug, hold, and cuddle the new baby as much as she wants.

I can totally relate to the shortness of breath. I'm only 25 weeks and have no clue why I'm out of breath all the time. What's it going to be like when I'm 40 weeks. It makes me not want to do anything!

Glad to see you're going to take advantage of your mom's time when she comes after the baby's born. I think everyone does that on the first baby.

Trust me when you were standing up yelling at Jared I didn't see that shortness in breath thing -teehee:)

Anyways don't worry about wanting to hold and love your baby at first the most it is totally a normal first mother thing this one will be easier to hand off to mom- I thing you are the best mom anyways myca I have watched you grow in to your motherhood and it has been like watching a flower bloom, your mother has taught you all the things she knows and now You are one of the strongest women I have ever known I love you keep up the good work-nena
