This cannot be labor-induced insomnia, as I am still sitting here at the laptop reading blogs and Monita is kicking the bejesus out of me. Everyone says that the baby stills right before delivery, although Pequita never did. Then again, she never descended into the birth canal very far, causing Homestead Mama hours and hours of very exciting and intense labor but still coming out via c-section.
Monito's back is along my right side, head down, and it LOVES to stretch its legs, causing my right side to swell out and the feet to poke out in alarming little divots that sometimes do the flutter kick. (Hey, what would you do after 9 months in the same pool? Practicing your swim techniques seems like a good enough idea to me.)
