|have noticed in the last few days that the skin right around my belly button is starting to look bruised. It's not tender like a bruise, just discolored. It's kinda weird. That happen to anyone else?
Me too, for a good month or more. Happened last time too. My bellybutton is totally flat, and really soft, it's so weird.
I'm doing okay- very happy to be 37 weeks tomorrow, as I'll be cleared for homebirth! Really tired of dropping things and forgetting things, tired of not being able to put on shoes and socks without grunting. Happy being pregnant though, and feeling this little one move inside me- I remember how much I missed that after DD was born, so I'm savoring it.
I'm feeling sad about our last few weeks as a threesome, and my DD's last weeks as an only child, but also so excited to see her make this transition to big sister-hood. She is SO excited for the birth*, and for the baby, and while I know there will be hard times ahead, I'm so grateful that we get to share this excitement now.
*Last night in the bath, she got up on her knees and dragged her bath doll through her legs saying "I catch the baby when she's born. Oh hi baby, it's so nice to see you!". lol, I think we've prepared her for the birth about as much as we can.
When I walk I get a lot of cervical twinges, but otherwise don't feel like anything is going to happen soon.
