pain in the butt

So I've recently acquired a major pain in the butt. And I'm not speaking figuratively here. My only explanation is that the baby has found a really comfy nerve to wedge its foot into, which is thereby creating a pinching sensation in my rear quarters.

Also, my circulation is doing really awesome. After about a half hour of exercising on the elliptical (and actually the aforementioned problem doesn't bother me during exercise, which further causes me to blame a pinched nerve rather than muscle strain), my toes become numb and tingly. I have to stop and give my tootsies a few shakes to get the blood flowing again. If I talk on the phone with my arm bent for more than five minutes, my hand goes numb. This has resulted in acrobatic, frequent hand switches while using the phone in order to allow all fingers sufficient blood flow.

Sometimes I forget that I have several DOZEN extra pounds settling IN MY PELVIS. And then my butt screams or my appendages go numb, and I'm like

oh yeah.
