My little Kickboxer

So last night I was laying on the couch reading, and Baby decided that he/she wanted to start kicking... a lot. For about an hour I sat there feeling like I was being beat up from the inside. haha.
I was even watching my stomach move... it was crazy!
Josh actually got to feel the baby kick for the first time. It kicked his hand pretty good when he had it on my belly.
Definitely think I am growing a soccer player or something. This baby is very active... and strong! =) Luckily the most active times are between 9-11pm, and then usually in the morning between 9-11. Hopefully that will be it's schedule after it's born too! Haha, hey, I can dream, right?

In other news, it looks like my wonderful little sister (who is almost finished with her 3rd year of nursing school) will be coming to stay with me for the last 3 weeks of my pregnancy. (If she doesn't get a job at the hospital) I am excited. It will be nice to have someone around (well, besides josh) to help me out, especially as I get bigger and more uncomfortable.

Today was almost 80 degrees outside, and being outside and walking around the couple times we were made me realize that this is going to be a miserable summer. haha. I was not very comfortable, and felt even hotter than it was outside. I am thinking we may need to invest in a kiddie pool for the warmer days. =) The good thing about carson city is that it always cools off at night... we have windows open and it is supposed to get in the 40's tonight. Even when it is in the 90s it still cools off at least to the 60s at night so everything cools off.

Well, I think I am going to pick up my book and try and finish it. (almost done!) Hope everyone is having a great weekend! =) I know I am enjoying mine off!

Those kicks are so much fun. You are so lucky to be able to have some help at the end of your pregnancy!

Congrats on your pregnancy! I always loved that part of pregnancy - when my baby would move around like crazy. :)

How nice that your sister is coming to stay with you. I bet she'll be a huge help. It's so hard towards the end when you're feeling so big and exhausted...

but the "reward" is so worth it! You're going to love being a mom.
