Pregnancy Pains

Well I have been too self absorbed to take any pictures or anything of Jonah the last few days. Everyday little tasks are such a challenge right now. This last week has been particularly difficult. I have been having fairly consistent hip and low back pain. Pretty sure it's got something to do with my body preparing for the big day. On top of that, the last two mornings I have woke up with my ribs hurting all around (this baby needs to move down and out of my chest.) Then the baby starts kicking and my muscles tighten up which makes me clinch with stabbing pain. If my dad's arthritis is like that I understand a little bit better his suffering. Needless to say I just have to get up and take a hot shower and let the stinging water override my pain sensors. So, I've gotten up about 6:30 or 7 the last couple of mornings. If you are reading this, I'm sure all this is not uncommon to many women in their 8th month of pregnancy; nevertheless, pray that I keep a good attitude and find comfort over the next 6 weeks. And God, just so you know, I am totally fine with a few days early arrival, Oh let's say the 14th instead of the 18th of July. Amen! :)

Dad's pain is very similar. Lots of rib pain, worse in the mornings, hot showers help, gets lots of muscle spasms but he won't get a baby out of it like you will.
