Frisky Pantrygirl

Something they don’t tell you about pregnancy is how your hormones may turn you into a giddy teenage schoolgirl. To put it bluntly, I’m horny as hell. Of course, I may be frisky but my body is like a ship on rocky seas. I’m waddling to and fro. By the time I finish dinner, I’m tired and looking forward to plopping myself on the couch or bed with my fort of pillows supporting my back and baby belly. Still, my hormones are pumping and I have increased blood flow coursing through my body. What’s a girl to do?

Now that I have that out, I can talk about things I had no idea I would feel as I head towards my 40th week.

1. My pelvis widening.
Yes I can feel my pelvis widening. It accounts for the increased waddling. It’s weird to feel my bones move.
2. My crotch occasionally feels like someone kicked it.
Apparently this is part of the pelvis widening. It comes out of nowhere and I have to stop in my tracks and take a deep breath.
