Something New Every Day

So Derek just threw his first fit. He's been breach this whole time, which means that a 10 inch baby not counting the legs managed to curl himself up in my cervix. Well now he's out grown that particular spot and had to move. Tonight i started feeling what felt like him rolling over like we would when we sleep. Then he rolled back. And again and again. And it got a little higher each time. Then in what I can only describe as a temper tantrum, he began kicking so hard that I could actually see my stomach moving. He's settled down but every now and then I feel him trying to squeeze back in there.

23 weeks

I wanted to be a hard body, not have a hard body...

Ever seen the movie "Hard Bodies"? The term Hard Body refers to a "hot" girl. A girl who has a flat stomach and big breasts. That's what I wanted. I guess I should have been more specific. Because I got a hard body (aka one with a baby inside) instead of being a Hard Body. Cosmic humour, huh? Not that I'm complaining. In many ways Derek is way better than having a hot body, but still it's a little ironic.

What's that saying? If you wanna hear God laugh, just tell him your plans? Cause lately it seems like I've been saying, "Here God, I've written down my plan. Oh, is that a big pink eraser you've got there?" Kinda been feeling like my life is spinning out of control. I know I'm not supposed to be in control, that's God's job, but I'm not the type who likes to feel lost. My parents can attest to that!

Went in for another ultrasound today. They were able to get the rest of the measurements they needed. Plus they took some 3D pics of the baby. Lil Derek is so cute!!
