Just Kickin’ it

We are 5 months and 2 weeks along this week. These are the words of a first time mom-to-bee. Last few nights the little one has been very active. She’s been kicking away and it’s such a weird feeling. I mean I’ve seen the pictures and heard the heartbeat but to feel movement is something else entirely. I don’t know what strong movements are vs light ones but it almost seems like I can SEE her little feet under my belly making it move and shift. I am loving being pregnant. I am loving that I’ll be a mom in just a few short months. All the difficulties are so worth it.

I’ve been laid up in bed for the last few days with what the doctors are telling me is a sciatic nerve pain but with all the acrobatics she’s performing in there I hope she moves off of that spot that has me pretty much immobile. After all, I AM single and I need to make the money for as long as I possibly can and my job requires walking, walking, and more walking.

Sure I can’t walk, have debilitating migraines, and have immense waves of nausea, but I am so looking forward to our sixth month together in a few weeks and the new experiences it’ll bring. In the meantime, I am trying to stay healthy (the whole household is sick with a high temperature so I guess it’s good that I am locked up in my room) and positive about the future.
