About three times per pregnancy, my babies go through a major growth spurt. This is not a pleasant thing for the person in whom the baby is growing. You've all seen the movie Alien, right?
I spend a couple of days feeling generally achy, just short of crampy. And also, my liver doesn't seem to be able to fit any more.
Silver lining: My posture gets better, though, as slowly baby and organs take over my rib cage making slouching an impossibility.
Anyway, today growth spurt number one has begun. I feel gross.
Oh, and did I mention we're feeding four bachelors tomorrow? Because everyone knows the BEST time to have a dinner party is when you feel like your liver is about to explode out of body.
In fact I'm sure Martha once said that. "When I was expecting Lexi..."
Silver lining: I will be the only woman and all the men are straight, so to heck with flowers and cleaning and all that.
