The Shuffling Begins

There's a point in pregnancy when it really hits you.

Sure, when you see that little blue cross on a stick it hits you.

But I mean, there's a point in pregnancy when your belly pops out overnight and suddenly you can feel all of your organ shifting around, making you uncomfortable.

And I mean really uncomfortable.

The kind of uncomfortable that makes it hard to breathe if you lean too far forward. The kind of uncomfortable that makes every position you ever sat in painful.

I'm there.

Oh, I am so there.

I can't breathe. I can't get comfy to read a book or watch TV. I can't stand for too long without getting tired.

And I'm only 17 weeks along!

Just think of the amount of bitching that will come in five more months when I resemble a small whale.

Sista friend, I was there. That is why I started my online store: www.bellybuttonboutique.com. I sell products of comfort and support for pre- and postnatal women. Try the wedge pillow. That helped me through the beginning.
