Braxton Hicks/Hiccups

31 weeks! And only 9 to go! It's crazy that I only have a little over 2 months. I can't believe that. I thought I would stay between 20-30 weeks forever! So last week I had braxton hicks for the first time...well the first time I noticed them. And I think I was having heart burn during also. I was so uncomfortable though. Jordan was so sweet and walked around the apartment with me rubbing my neck and shoulders. It was great..not the braxton hicks but the message. I didn't realize the braxton hicks could be painful. Actually to be quite honest I didn't really know what braxton hicks were. I had heard about them and new they were false contractions but I didn't really understand...and I guess I shouldn't really of understood what they were because I had never experienced them before. At first I just thought I was having really bad heart burn then I was thinking well why would heart burn be all over my stomach and not just in my chest. I was most definitely having heart burn also though.

Also I think it was about 2 weeks ago when I first felt our little guy having the hiccups. I was trying to take a nap after work one day and my belly had a constant bounce to it. It was so cute. I kept looking at my belly and smiling. And he has had them a bunch since then also! He is running out of room in there as well. I feel a lot of pressure on my belly and I know it's him trying to move around but having a hard time. He really seems to like the top of my belly right under my chest, and my ribs. Silly little boy! I can't wait to see him! I need him to keep cookin though!
