I’m writing this from my couch while my mother-in-law, father-in-law, sister-in-law, and Charlie hang out watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Stella is taking a nap after a fun morning of “cooking” in her new kitchen, and my heart is pretty much full.
I’m having Braxton Hicks contractions pretty regularly, as well as random shooting pains/cramps in my upper inner thighs (weird – has anyone else experienced this?). Other than that, I’m doing great, and little man isn’t showing any indications of wanting to join us quite yet. That’s okay though – I’m trying to soak in these last few moments with him in my belly, and enjoy this holiday with my in-laws around.
