This is a bad picture of me, but a good one of the belly. I swear it grows every day now. I had to buy a couple more pairs of pants today as I am quickly wearing out the two pairs of maternity pants that are my favorites.

The Smithling has been occupying my belly for 21 weeks now. He is starting to be more active and I can feel him many times during the day. There are so many strange things about being pregnant that no one ever tells you about. For example:

  • Pregnant women can not bend over, not because their bellies are big, but because their bellies do not bend. There is no bending of the baby. I have recently noticed as well that the more I bend the less I can actually breathe. I am forced into good posture now or I feel unable to take a really deep breath.
  • At some point, your body starts producing Relaxin which causes your joints to turn to mush. My hips and bad knee have begun to hurt a bit. Very Exciting. Relaxin enables your pelvis to stretch and let out the kid clawing its way through the birth canal. Even more fun.
  • Your possible sleeping positions go down to 2: left side and right side. If you sleep too long on one side, your hip falls asleep. This results in having to flip over many times a night, but you are up going to the bathroom anyway.
  • I knew I was going to be tired, but routinely going to bed at 8pm sucks.
  • Your freckles and moles get darker.
  • And on, and on.

Soon, we will get some links on the registry, a belly picture, and the ultrasound pictures up. Stay tuned.
