little bear’s being pretty active this afternoon… i love him so much. i can’t wait til he gets here… i was talking to someone this morning, and little bear gave me a pretty solid kick, which made me jump. the lady i was talking to thinks maybe he’ll be a soccer player or something. he sure can pack a punch.
aside from freaking out every now and then about stuff like whether he’s moving enough or too frantically or whatever, pregnancy’s still going well. everyone keeps noting how swollen my legs/ankles/feet are, though. my blood pressure has been good so far, so i’m trying not to dwell on it. the only thing that’s really bothering me is that my pubic bone area hurts. i’m hoping it doesn’t become that severe issue where you can hardly walk or whatever. i think empress had it pretty bad last time? so far, it’s just some pain in my crotchtal area, so it might not even be the same thing. also, i got an awful charley horse on the morning of sohei’s graduation. i used to get them a lot anyway, but this was my first pregnancy one. and my muscle had a knot in it for two days! sohei rubbed it, and it finally felt better the next day. but i couldn’t straighten my leg much or walk on it well for a couple days. it’s not usually quite that bad.
i guess i forgot to mention sohei’s graduation. it was on saturday, and his dad and mum and no-chan came up on friday. we all went to dinner and everything was pretty good. sohei’s parents don’t see each other much, and sohei worries when they’re going to be together, but i don’t know why, because they’re totally amicable! i don’t know what they were like when sohei was little, but i’ve seen them together a few times since we started dating, and they’ve never been anything but friendly. it was funny listening to the three old folks talk about all these people they all know and old times and stuff. (no-chan was married to a family friend who everyone knew, and they were all in the same social circle and everything, so they all knew who everyone was talking about.)
anyway, i’m so proud of my bear. he worked really hard the past three years, and graduated with highest honor, summa cum laude. (less than ten people in his class of 200 graduated with that distinction.) he also had one of the longest book lists (booking a class means you got the highest grade) and a bunch of other mentions for extracurriculars. and made the dean’s list every semester, though he did that in undergrad, too. he’s going to be so good at what he does. we talked to his bankruptcy professor at the reception, and he clearly thinks sohei is brilliant. his dad and i think so, too, but we’re obviously biased. seriously, though, he always comes up with these great theories when his dad runs into problems with cases. he has such a good mind for this stuff. his dad recently won a rather sizable settlement for a client, and parts of his winning argument came from sohei’s ideas.
i guess i’d better get back to work. i have some stuff to finish up before i leave…
