Only 5 weeks left to go. I can't believe it. The belly is definitely getting heavier and the baby's movements are no longer kicks but weird rolling movements. The other day it looked as if he pushed his whole back against my belly as hard as he could. I think he wants out because there is no more room.
The weirdest thing I heard about this week is that the baby has already smushed and moved most of my internal organs, but any day now he will make a final move and shove my heart up and to the left to make more room for himself. How crazy is that?
Aside from being ginormous I feel pretty good. Everyone said the last trimester is really difficult, but for me the first trimeseter was by far worse. The only things I can complain about are occasional back pain, shortness of breath and just feeling plain pooped out.
