Though I don’t consider my (unborn) baby to be a pest, this just seemed like the perfect opportunity to write about how horrible (but awesome) it is when he moves. (trust me, it gets to me so annoying.)
Today I am thirty-three weeks pregnant; I have approximately seven weeks left.
My baby seriously loves to move around a lot like he owns the freaking place (clearly he’s the one who wears the pants in the family) and it can get to me annoying, here are some reasons as to why.
  1. Trying to get to sleep at night can get to be very hard because that’s one of the times he decides to be the most active. He kicks, he squirms, he sometimes hurts me, and it keeps me up ALL night. One of the worst parts is when I’ve finally fallen asleep and he decides to wake me up by booting me in the ribs.
  2. Sitting down isn’t really much better. When I’m trying to sit and be comfortable, he switches positions, forcing me to switch positions; the way I sit is NOT at all up to me, it’s up to my baby. Sometimes while I’m sitting, he likes to put me through pain and it’s really not fun.
  3. I have bad ribs on my left side in the front due to being jumped about seven years ago. They still hurt occasionally, so when Potato decides to just boot them, it’s really not a happy time for me or my boyfriend because he really doesn’t like seeing me in pain and I (like most other people) don’t quite enjoy being in pain.
  4. When Potato stretches, it feels awesome (and gross). I freaking love it!! I love knowing that he’s alive and moving in there, it makes me happy. However, sometimes when Potato moves, he thinks it’s such a GREAT idea to stretch out both my sides. He stretches to the point where it feels like he’s sticking out half a foot on either side and it HURTS!!


    should not stretch like that, seriously.
  5. Sometimes he moves way too much and it does get annoying because I’d like for it to not feel as though there is a rave happening inside my uterus.
  6. One of the things I hate the most is that he pretty much controls when I pee just by hitting my bladder. I could have just stepped out of the bathroom and he hits my bladder, causing this intense sensation in my bladder that makes me need to pee. I don’t like always needing to get up to go. He does it a lot when I’m just getting ready for bed too.
  7. With how far along I am now, he’s getting ready to drop, which means that I am getting so much closer to labour and it really hurts. The dropping of the baby usually occurs around 2-4 weeks before delivery, but it can definitely happen sooner than that. Now that he’s getting ready for it, when he moves, it gets to be so very painful. I wake up in pain, I go to sleep in pain, I go throughout my day feeling random pains. It sucks haha!!
  8. Pregnancy has always grossed me out, so when he moves, it just gives me the creeps. It feels so freaky, it doesn’t feel natural, it looks gross. I went my entire life not feeling anything like this, and all of a sudden, there it is!! And it just feels and looks so nasty!!!! (Though it feels amazing at the same time.)
Those are just some of the things I really don’t like about him moving. Other than that, it truly is a beautiful feeling. I’ve never felt anything more amazing in my life. I’m creating a tiny human who shares the same DNA as me and his father and I think that is something so amazing. I really cannot wait to meet the little bugger and hold him in my arms, sing to him, tell him how much I love him, see his first smile. I know that going through this pain and feeling grossed out by his movements is going to be so worth it in the end.
I know I’m going to miss him being in there, most moms do.. But I do badly want him out here.. NOW.. I don’t want to wait another seven weeks, lol. I’m impatient and greedy..
I just wish he could hurry up, haha.

    1. Haha, thank you for the comment.

      Yea, we call him Potato right now. We have our hearts set on a name, but we don’t want anybody knowing what it is until after he’s born.

      I was in a car accident 5 years ago and my body has never fully healed from it, or just healed wrong.. And so pregnancy is making is even harder, but I know it will be so worth it.

      You can definitely feel your skin stretching, it feels like he’s sticking out so far sometimes and it is highly uncomfortable, lol.

      2. Just being honest, no disrespect, but I’m an atheist. I really don’t mind that you’re religious, I just thought I’d let you know.

        That being said, I really can’t wait to let everybody know his name. My boyfriend’s mom messaged me today suggesting the name Tate, she doesn’t know that we’ve chosen a name, haha.
