According to the internet, the baby is about 10 1/2 inches long this week, which makes it about the same size as Jacques the Sock. No wonder it keeps elbowing me, there is not a lot of room in there.

I woke up this morning before my alarm went off sweating and with horrible leg cramps and largely terrified by a very vivid nightmare about an extremely bloody serial killer. Not the best way to start the day. But when I got to the coffeeshop (yes, I haven’t given up coffee yet, but I am [...]
I think this kid is trying to dig it’s way out through my belly button. Either that or its holding a dance party in my uterus. I’m not sure which I prefer, really.
I have found the Brilliant Idea That Will Make Us All A Million Dollars, and as usual, someone else thought of it first. There’s no reason why it couldn’t be transplanted though.

We ended up not going to OMSI today, since Ryan got off work later than originally thought, so I spent most of the day with my mother instead. Mothers are good at cheering people up. We had ice cream and went exploring, and found a beautiful house with a wraparound porch and a western red [...]
Today was my last day volunteering at the library. I’d hoped to be able to keep it up at least until the summer, but I’m just too tired anymore. They were very understanding, and told me that I should bring the baby in to visit sometime, and they gave me a “Born to Read” onesie [...]
