Starting to notice the waning of my belly button. I didn’t think I would mind seeing it go, but as it slowly creeps away I am having trouble saying goodbye.
This week I have the added bonus of a numb spot on my left thigh just above my knee. Thanks baby for sitting directly on my nerves. It pretty much feels like I was shot with Novocain. It doesn’t hurt, just feels a little weird (or doesn’t feel weird depending on how you look at it). The midwife and the internet agree it is no big deal and everything will be normal again once baby moves off my nerve.
Lots of kicks these days. I’m even seeing my belly move here and there with a few of the strong ones.
Christmas had the added bonus this year of baby gifts! Lots of super cute owl goodies for the nursery, an owl hat, and baby PJs from my Mom (she doesn’t know her Grandma name yet). And a beautiful Eric Carle Christmas book from Marco’s Mom (Nona).
