I have been getting a lot more tired lately. I need naps during the day and luckily since I am off for the summer I am able to take naps and go to bed early as well. Even though I am really tired I don't really sleep well anymore. Between my aches and pains and inability to get comfortable with a big baby jabbing me everywhere plus frequent bathroom stops, its just really hard to sleep. Santiago has been a wonderful sleeper lately taking a 3-4 hour nap in the afternoon and that really gives me a chance to catch up. At least I am getting a little down time. My back hurts a lot - especially in the evenings and when I have to sit on hard surfaces. My hips are pretty sore when I wake up in the mornings and its definitely hard to get out of the bed. I have to literally roll out! Hector thinks it is quite funny the way I have to move around now. The baby moves around a lot still and you can see my belly move with him. The heat is pretty intense lately and my hands and feet are beginning to swell a bit. Some days I can't wear my wedding ring because it is cutting into my finger.
