Is it Feeling a Little Crowded in Here?

My little sister gave birth to her 4th child yesterday morning! Yes...she is my younger sister and she has 4 kids and I have 2...Hey...my baby brother has 3 kids - and I have 2 ... get over it!!! (If you are curious about why I don't have 10 children...take a look at this old post)

I'm quite tall...I'm about 5'10" my little sister is more like 5'3". When I am at the end of a pregnancy (or at least for the 2 times I have been pregnant), I feel large, clumsy, uncomfortable and overcrowded. I can't imagine how it feels for her!

I got a great email from her about a week ago it said this, in part:

Baby girl ____ is enjoying her current location for the time being, but I am getting very anxious to meet her and my internal organs are anxious to have their own space back.

Congratulations Little Sis. on getting your internal organs back into their own space. And welcome to the world to my newest niece!!!

My younger brother has 2 kids, and I have 0. My younger sister has one kid, and I have 0. I do not even remotely have an issue with this. :)

Congratulations!!

So I just read the post about your not having 10 children and it seemed to familiar. I have 3 beautiful children--which weren't hard at all to concieve BUT I developed Toxemia with all 3 pregnancies. All of my babies were early and I had to be on bedrest with all 3. I really wanted 1 more and I fasted and prayed about it and my answer came in July when I went for my annual exam (I hadn't been in 3 years) and we found that I need bladder surgery and a hysterectomy.

How I would love to be 5'10! All the love (and weight) is distributed so much better when pregnant!

I'm not so much worried about my internal organs getting their space back...but I would love to be able to put. this. baby. DOWN. so I can breathe when I lean over again. :-)

Maybe it's the same thing?

Congrats to your sis.
