Meet Becky

A pregnant mom that moves non-stop all day.

Becky's lower back has been KILLING her lately.

Then, one late night, Becky finally found Betty!
Becky was VERY excited.
Becky slept the entire night with Betty by her side, or in her arms.
Becky woke up with a semi-sore back...but feeling much better.
Becky gave Betty a big hug.
Good Betty.

Becky had another inspiration.
Becky went to the chiropractor.
Becky learned that not only her upper back, but now her lower back, hurts because her constantly contracting gallbladder is messing with her back muscles.
Becky cursed her gallbladder.
Bad Becky, bad gallbladder.

Dr. Jo is a Chiropractor (name has been changed to protect the innocent).
Say hi to Jo.

Jo is very smart.
Jo said Becky's back is very tight and out of line.
Jo straightened Becky's back.
Jo "woke up" Becky's non-working gallbladder...on purpose.
There was a lot of stuff stuck in Becky's gallbladder.
Jo hurt Becky.
Becky's gallbladder hurt for hours.
Becky's gallbladder FINALLY emptied.
Becky felt better, much better.
Happy Becky.

Becky will continue to see Betty every night.
Becky will visit Jo once a week until the baby comes.

Good Betty.

Meet Shaina.
Shaina is Becky's Friend.
Shaina also has a Betty.
Betty hasn't been loved for a few months.
Shaina's Betty can go join Becky's Betty, if Becky needs an additional Betty.
Two Betty's are better than one.
Shaina is happy Becky wrote this post.
Shaina laughed.
Good Becky.

You are so creative!! Just because you think your mom is more creative, you still make some of us (me) look talentless and dreamless...it was interesting because I did NOT nest, I had no theme for Alex's room or anything. Maybe it had something to do with the three different places we lived while I was pregnant...not much chance to do it so I didn't let myself? Or maybe my nester is broken? :)

Yay for happy Becky! Don't you just love "Betty?" Mine was called "The Boyfriend" and my hubby hates him! So glad to hear you're feeling better.
