Is it so bad that I don't want our baby boy to ever come out of me?
It sounds a little too painful to me. I mean, I think I've seen my fair share of pain throughout my life.
- broken ankle
- fractured hand
- numerous muscle strains and sprains
- intense muscle lockening in my back to the point where I could not get out of bed on my own
- stress fracture in my fibula
- broken clavicle and three ribs
- and then to top it all off, 5 dislocated metatarsals, 3 of which were broken as well as tearing of a major ligament in my foot (this has been by far the worse of the bunch)
I am not sharing all of this to write about how tough I am, or how cool I am that all of these things have really happened to me throughout my life because honestly, I would have rather not felt any of that pain.
I'm just saying that looking back at that list, I think my body has seen enough. Most of these issues came from being so involved in gymnastics, which I totally understand was my choice, but either way
pain = no fun
And he's doing just fine in my belly the way he is. Maybe I won't feel this way in a few weeks, but at least I do right now. I went in to the doctor to have some little (ok maybe they were huge) bumps on my fingers frozen off and I almost passed out. They had to keep me an extra 40 minutes so I could lay down and let my blood pressure go back to a normal level. Spencer even had to come and pick me up from the doctor's office. I have to go back in a week to have it all done again and I'm hoping that my body won't react the same way, but I guess I better go in expecting it. I really think that having this little man in me is changing my pain tolerance which kind of worries me considering he still has to come out of me haha!
Anyways... the moral of the story is... I like him where he is. In my belly. To never come out. Is that so bad?
