I’m up 25 pounds now. 34 weeks. I still feel pretty good. My biggest bother is the leg cramps. They’re in my calf mostly. They can wake me up and ache all day. I ate a banana smoothie for dinner last night. Hope it helps. I should be walking more. But if I don’t run out before Vivien wakes up, I hear screams of “mommy, mommy” as I rush out the door . So I go back to my coffee and bagel.
Junior is so mellow, I got worried the other day. My daughter really beat me up before. My doctor said to lie down for an hour and count at least ten movements. Then it meant he was fine. The first 20 minutes while I watched an old interview with Joe Biden (catching up on Tivoed news shows), he didn’t move at all, and I was freaked. Then by the time Biden said the economy was worse than they had thought (uh, yeah, we all realized that, didn’t we?), Junior was starting to boogie. I felt much better.
People keep saying “Are you ready?” Gosh, are you ever?
