I am 1.5″ away from reaching the 42″ circumference I achieved at 40 weeks with Addie.
A) holy crap.
I polled some moms on facebook last night about the pain I’m experiencing in the midsection area, I’ve been trying to describe to to Cody, or really anyone with ears who will listen and I think I finally came up with an explanation. (!) The helpful souls of facebook used terms such as “rabid badger! burning! searing! tearing! ripping!”
Thanks facebook! A “it’s normal” would have sufficed but you really went the extra mile with all the adjectives!
Anyway, I finally figured out a way to describe it.
It’s not very ethical. PETA may not like it very much. I will neither confirm nor deny that I have ever done this to a cat. I’m afraid to even search for it on YouTube, because there’s strange people out there with Internet access and video cameras.
Anyway, imagine putting a large cat in a plastic grocery bag and hanging said grocery bag from a doorknob.
The stretched bag is my belly, the wiggly cat is Mozzi.

Yeah, that looks pretty accurate.
