One part of my anatomy is no longer a mystery

My belly button is completely inside out.  If it weren't for the fact that it's herniated it'd probably be gone right now entirely.  Just a slightly different colored flat spot on a big round basketball of a belly. It's really a strange phenomenon to be able to feel the soft skin from the inside of your belly button. And it's also strange to realize that it's not a bottomless pit. 

I've had a weird relationship with my belly button for as long as I can remember.  I've never liked anything touching it. And I'm wondering if this will change the way I feel about it later. Maybe I will be over it. I guess we'll see. A lot of things will be different after all this.

I'm tired

I'm tired of being so cold.  I'm tired of being this pregnant. I'm tired of all the news coverage of justin bieber.

Fortunately all of this will take care of itself in due time.

I'm looking forward to spring for so many reasons.   No, summer. Summer will be best.

So full of baby

Having a really uncomfortable night.  Baby just feels so huge and restless inside me. I feel like we're both miserable. 

Sometimes when I wake up at this hour I wonder if it's worth it to even try to go back to sleep. It's not like I'm gonna be able to get comfortable. Would going into work at 5am be too insane?  Probably. I'd crash by 2pm. 

Zach is sleeping but he still has his warm hand on my back. Just that little gesture of support is helping me out right now. 

I can't believe I have another 4.5 weeks left of this. At this moment I feel like I physically can't take anymore. Meaning I just don't think my belly can stretch to accommodate more baby. 

But I know it can. 

But ugh.  It's uncomfortable. And I'm so tired.
