So there isn't a pleasant way to say it, but I'm pretty sure the baby is trying to escape out of me. I'm not even kidding. And it doesn't exactly feel pleasant. In fact, it doubles me over sometimes. But if that means it's getting ready to make a quick and smooth entrance, I'm game. But man my groin hurts. (Listen, the minute you become pregnant, everything TMI no longer becomes TMI. So I said it: groin.)

That said, my back hurt something fierce yesterday too. I did the pregnant woman waddle all dang day. But I believe I discovered the culprit. You see, for weeks, I've been sleeping on the couch. I always start in my bed, but then when I get up to pee two minutes later, I land on the couch instead. On Sunday night, I told myself to be a big girl and stay in her big girl bed. So I did.

I bought that mattress when I was single. So it's getting old, and the problem is the pillow top. When I bought it, it was a billowy, cloudy pillow of love. Now it's a big ol' mushy lump that swallows your body and demands that you pry your limbs from its cotton grip every morning. Apparently during my big girl night, it also seized my back. Because after another night of couch sleeping, I be healed!

Well, my groin is KILLING. But my back - the thing that made it hard to walk yesterday - is feeling A-okay.

Five weeks amigos. Five weeks until my groin pain becomes REAL groin pain. And I have a baby. Whoa.

A TIP: When the subject matter doesn't lend itself to photos, just find a really cute one of your tiny baby. Babies always win.

That baby must be so excited to come into the world! Sorry to hear you feel so yucky though. Keep being tough.
