People are constantly asking me how I'm feeling, even my doctor yesterday. While I'm glad their asking, I'm always a bit reserved to answer, because honestly I don't know where to begin. I have so many aches and pains. I'm miserable at night, I can't get comfortable. The two sleep position options I have are not cutting it. One side makes my back hurt and the other makes my shoulder hurt. So I toss and turn back and forth, which isn't as easy as it sounds when you have a huge watermelon to take with you each time you roll over. I wake up a couple times a night to a random cramp in my legs. As I mentioned before, I can't bend over. I have heartburn every evening, I crave chocolate and coffee that I can't have...shall I go on?!
And the answer I always give people is, "Good." Because to be honest, I feel really guilty complaining about being pregnant. It's exciting having a baby and I'm super happy to be blessed to have another child. Some things in life never get old, pregnancy is not one of them, yet having a baby is. 10 months ago I didn't know if my body would ever be straightened out enough to become pregnant, let alone carry a baby for 9 long months.
Jenna was admiring the diapers on the changing table last night. She asked me the same question as she does everyday, several times a day, "When Bady gonna come out?" I told her the same answer as always, "When he gets big enough." She thought a moment and asked, "Bady gonna wear diapers?" I told her yes and she said, "Oh, cool!!!"
Another huge necessity we had was for a baby swing and a bouncy seat. I had gotten rid of my old ones because they really needed replacing. Once again, the Lord provided for this need that I really didn't want to break the budget on. I searched Craigslist and found a swing, just like I'd been wanting at a price I was willing to pay. The lady selling it emailed me before I came to look at it and wanted to know if I might be interested in any other items she had for sale. I wasn't in need of anything she had listed, but replied back and let her know that I was looking for a bouncy seat if she had one. She didn't respond to that specific statement so when I arrived at her house to look at the swing, I was shocked when she showed me the bouncy seat, matching the swing! This is the first time I have ever purchased anything off of Craigslist, have any of you had great success with it?
