K___ woke in the middle of the night, got up for a few minutes and then went back to bed.
(Pretty devastating opening there, I think you'll agree...) She had been sleeping propped up on her back, but decided to move onto her side. For a long time now, this has been a complicated procedure involving a cushion under the feet, one between the knees and a pillow under the bump all to try and aliviate putting pressure on the pelvis or the bump in the wrong way.
She manuvered herself onto one hip and tried to settle but it was no good. She slowly rotated herself and repositioned all the pillows etc and tried the other. Cue Ms Wobblechops busting some fancy dance moves on her insides. I say dance moves. It might have been capoeira or some other dance/martial art because apparently it bloody hurts getting kicked all around the inside of your public bone.
When K___ told me about it this morning, she had thought that maybe the baby had turned and was now breach, but she's since emailed and told me that she's being subjected to another bump disco this afternood and the kicks are higher up which would suggest she's not head up, but head down.
I know this must sound like whinging, but it's just another delight of being pregnant!
