31 Weeks and a Story About Sweet Amelia

Here we are at 31 weeks. The babies must be going through another growth spurt, because I'm clearly growing again, too. And the babies are not in the best positions right now. When I stand up the weight shift into my pelvis causes me a fair amount of pain -- and causes me to walk like I just got off a horse for the first couple steps!

Yesterday morning I had to use a little extra lotion to ease the stretching skin across my belly. A few hours later I got off the couch to use the bathroom and groaned a bit when the pelvic pain kicked in.

Amelia was busy playing in the family room and looked up at me and said, "Don't worry, Mommy. We'll fix you up."

Jeff and I both laughed at that, and then laughed harder when she went and got my lotion and proceeded to rub some on my belly once I sat down again. My sweet Amelia. She never misses a trick!

I count every Sunday a double blessing because it's one more week these babies are still growing and doing well!
