Growth Spurt

I find myself wondering if it is possible to actually run out of room in your skin before the baby stops growing. The last two days it has felt as if Pomegranate is trying to hatch from my abdomen. It’s as if she’s growing faster than the skin can stretch (and the copious stretch marks are ample evidence that my skin is, indeed, stretching) and at some point my skin will just split down the center and my daughter will emerge victorious like a new born chick from an egg.

Or a new born dinosaur, or some such hatching animal.

I know this won’t, in fact, happen. It just FEELS like it will happen.
