today is sunday, i haven't weighed myself all this weekend but i imagine that its around 302 - 305. I don't imagine that it suddenly dropped 50 pounds, if it did then i'd have to check to make sure my legs were both there. And they still are. Kristen's belly seems to constantly itch these days. I had never heard about that symptom of pregnancy before. the midwives said that if it itches, you shouldn't scratch it, because it will only make the stretch marks worse. But it thats like telling a kid with chicken pox not to scratch, says kristen. We got the crib up the other day, and we spent all saturday trying to catch up on all the laundry. We've been able to do a lot of stuff, as far as getting ready for the baby, thanks to grandma's generous donation to the cause. Up to this point, we had a lot of breakdowns and worry and anger and so forth. These last month and a half or so kristen hasn't been able to speak through the night, so she hasn't had enough sleep. But the money has helped a lot because we paid off the credit cards and are still able to get some final supplies.
