if you wrap yourself in daffodils, i'll wrap myself in pain

i do love the counting crows. our daffodils are about 2 inches out of the ground now. i can hardly wait they are so pretty when they bloom. then it will be the tulips and the lilacs. i also wanted to share some awesome news with you guys. we paid off our last credit card. the motorcycle will be paid off in June. if we continue to follow our budget we will have everything paid off in 4 1/2 years. yes, everything. that includes both vehicles and the house. the Lord has blessed us in ways i can't believe. we could potentially be out of debt sooner. we usually use our tax refunds to pay things off, so we are looking at a year earlier. this has been such a battle for us, and the Lord has been working on our behalf for a long time. so now i have a question for you guys. did you have braxton hicks contractions with pregnancy? I've been asking my friends because these things are a bit unnerving for me. i didn't really have these with the girls. now it seems like every time i am up and active for more than 15 minutes my entire abdomen tightens. it isn't painful, but it is uncomfortable. it has been absolutely beautiful here and i would love to go for walks, but i worry about the weird tightening. anyway i need to start getting things ready for dinner at the church. hope you guys are having a great week.

That's awesome news and I am really enouraged by your story.

All I can say is, the more kids you have the more stretched those muscles get. I have 7 kids and by the 3rd or 4th, I would always get weird muscle aches and pains in the wierdest places. If it isn't "painful", then do what you can, but you may have to take it easier than you did with the other two...also we carry boys differently then girls and so our body changes and adapts differently. A belly bra might help and you can get those at a Walgreen's or such. That would be really good for your tummy tightening and will help take the pressure off those weaker muscles. It may only get worse the further along you get. Let me know if this helps.
