they're trapped

I was telling Brad about how I've been a little anti-social, consumed with projects and plans for home & baby. Then I mentioned how I haven't been blogging as much. Brad was like, "Katie, blogging isn't social..." Well, being virtually social is one step for me. I love hanging out w/ friends in real life too, so if you're local we should get together, I don't want to be a social wreck loose anymore. :)
The reality of pregnancy is hitting me harder these days. I'm suddenly feeling huge, wearing official maternity clothes, and experiencing some new pregnancy discomforts: lower back pain, inability to bend over, and starting to feel the impact of this growing bowling ball in my abdomen on all my organs. I"m only 1/2 way there, so thats a little scary...
Not all the new changes have been bad though! I've been feeling the babies move around for weeks now, its pretty cool. Brad has been anxious to join in on the fun, so last week I knew he'd be thrilled to feel them. Once when they were particularly active I put his hand where I'd felt little pokes, and he felt them! I think he was excited, but all he said was, "they're trapped! they hate it in there."
I tried to explain how a uterus is a happy place for a fetus to grow, but apparently to Brad my womb is a small prison. It's okay- the girls have already served over 1/2 of their time. I guess they are trapped, but i think they like it.

you look amazing! The movement will get so crazy, just wait. It's so fun. I miss it. I'm so sorry you're feeling the prego pains. Sorry to say it'll only get worse, but it is oh so worth it. I remember I got so huge, Mark offered to shave my legs for me. (Sweet, but I didn't let him).

If you get cabin fever with your twins, we can always do a twin playdate. :)

You are so dang cute, I hate you. Let's get together soon. Maybe the first weekend in November? I know that's not technically SOON, but if we plan ahead maybe it'll work.

Katie you are so cute, I seriously can't get over it!

You are a very adorable mommy-to-be. Your tummy is the perfect little round prego belly. You should model maternity wear. :)
