8 months pregnant

So, here's an update on me, the little one, and the little one's daddy.

I'll start with Raj. He has had a nasty cold for about a week. Sore throat, headache, stuffy nose, cough. It was sounding like he was getting better, but then this AM he woke up with no voice. Now that he has been awake for a bit, he seems to be getting his voice back a little.

The baby. Mr. Deven has discovered my ribs. He pushes on them or kicks them and this is very uncomfortable. Also, he has discovered that he can place a good sharp kick to my bladder and send me running to the bathroom. This is not my favorite. What I do love about this stage of pregnancy is that he is a lot more active. It's very reassuring to feel him rolling, kicking and punching around in there.

Me. So, 8 months pregnant. I have never really gotten that OHMYGOD I MUST HAVE ______ that I have read that so many women get. I get hungry for stuff, but if I can't have it, no biggie, on to something else. The closest thing I could come to that was when I saw a commercial for Hawaiian Punch and while shopping, I went to that aisle specifically so that I could get some. I bought it even though it contains high fructose corn syrup, an ingredient that i usually work very hard to avoid. It was pretty goddamned delicious, I must say. My feet are really starting to swell, to the point that they don't seem to go down anymore. I had to buy new shoes because my brown work shoes didn't fit anymore, and will likely never fit again, since they are so stretched out of shape.

This morning I woke up with a headache and a stuffy nose. I better not be getting Raj's cold. If I do, asses will be kicked.

So, how they hell are all of you?
