Tiny Baby Kicks

The baby is getting smushed. He used to give big, hard kicks. Now, it's tiny little taps. Other people have told me stories of babies up in their ribs, but I had no idea. Baby has parked his bum right under my right ribcage. It is a very disturbing feeling.

I'm about 32 1/2 weeks. I've been pregnant forever. I have never had a problem with inductions for medical reasons. In fact, I might be facing one with a history of big baby, a baby who increases significantly in size every sonogram, and gestational diabetes (which raises the risk of harm to the baby as the baby gets larger). But I never quite got why someone would electively induce and risk a baby born too early or a c-section. However, I get it now. I still wouldn't do it, but wow, my stomach is huge and my body is hurting.

Staying off your feet for two weeks sure does make you weak and lethargic.

Hang in there, you're getting close!!! I have lots of comments, but alas, no time to post- newborn is crying! But, sending lots of support your way- including the issue of breastfeeding!
