Belly update: 6 months

And we enter the third trimester.....
This is when the real fun begins, "Wow you have three months left you must be having twins..." "Woah, serious, you're only how far along...you are really big, I thought you'd be due any day"
I don't understand how people can seriously make those kind of comments and think they are not being rude. :)
My baby is super active right now, if you sit by me you can see her kicking and stretching. She (like her brother) is in my rib cage and seems to get higher everyday. I wouldn't mind except the rib spreading/cracking effect it has on me. I think I'm one of those low pain tolerance people, because it hurts!!! Also the fun of the daily leg cramps are in full swing, and if I forget to eat my bananas I usually wake up in the night with really bad ones.
Also reached the stage of can-not-get-comfortable-to-sleep stage, meaning I don't sleep a lot. But I haven't filled my Ambien yet, but soon I'm sure. Compare to last months here, I know you are all very jealous.

Michelle said...

I don't envy you :) But you do look HOT!! Sorry about the ribs I never got that, um.. and the leg cramps sorry. Keep on truckin! Ruby is totally worth it.

Anna, you're so cute! I think you look happy, despite the pains of pregnancy. :) How's the house hunt coming?

Ginny said...

You look great! Good luck with the last 3 months.

I think you look so cute! Don't listen to those rude people. One time I was due any day and an obsese lady proceded to tell me how huge I was. People can be so wierd. Just remember all these pains are worth every second.

I think you look adorable! I can not believe how time flies (probably not so much for you), but it seems like was reading the exciting news on your blog only a month or two ago.

I'm so excited to meet Ruby!

Looking good Anna! I remember Abby kicking me in the ribs and it making me jump while in conversation with my boss at work. She was like "Um, are you ok?" I was a little embarrassed but they can sure jolt you sometimes.

Anna,
I am glad someone else is feeling a little larger than they should. I think you look great!!! I am excited that you are having a girl. They are way fun to dress up. Sorry about all the crapy pregnancy stuff but it will be over before you know it!!!
love crystal

You are pretty, as always! I'm excited to see Ruby, Rubi, Rubie, or whatever. If she's as pretty a baby as her momma, she's gonna be gor-juss!

You look just fine Anna, I am so sorry about your Rib, and leg cramps. hope you feel better.

Mom B said...

I love the picture and glad to see you wearing the same shirt. You look darling and your "I'm having a little girl" smile only gets cuter every month. I sympathize with you about the leg cramps and rib pains. Call me and we'll talk about old-age pains--they don't go away in 9 months :)

Anna-This is Britney (I live next to Liza). I saw your link on her blog...I hope you don't mind that I checked it out! I was just telling Liza the other day that I didn't think you were that far along (I did...ask her!) Some people just have no tact whatsoever! I wish we could've gotten to know each other better before you moved! Good luck with the next couple months...your baby girl will be so worth it! Mine turned a year old today and she is so worth everything I went through!

You look great Anna! It's such a cute belly! And so high! I always carried so low ~ and always thought "high" bellies looked cuter ;-)
