Oh yeah, and robugmum, I'm also having the stretchy skin sensations, at least on certain days. I can't exactly tell if I have any new stretch marks (so many from last time), but I wouldn't be surprised. I actually had a dream that my skin was splitting and bleeding ~ yikes!
Also, I'm not usually one to complain about other people's comments, but I'm tiring of them lately. It seems I cannot go anywhere without someone saying something about how I'm "ready to pop." And tonight, I had a conversation that took the cake. At the ice cream parlor (ahhh, the irony), a man actually got out of his chair, tapped me on the shoulder, and asked if I was "like nine months pregnant?" He then went on to say that he had never seen "such a pregnant woman before in his life" and that he "has seen plenty of pregnant women." He even asked if this was my first (I said "no") and then "didn't I feel so much bigger with this one?"
: I was so shocked by his comments that I didn't come up with anything witty, but I did respond with a fair amount of strength in my voice ~ like "yes, I am big, and I may have fairly big babies, but WTF gives you the right to come up with these questions?" Perhaps I should just assume he was either drunk or stoned, as I cannot imagine these are socially acceptable things to say to a pregnant woman (although others' comments don't seem too far from these) . . .
