I'm So Pregnant - Update #6


The last two weeks have really made me appreciate just HOW amazing us mothers are. Sure, we all say and know that, but it's not until you're in the thick of it that you really see just how much we take on - not because we necessarily want to, but because it just all sort of falls on us, doesn't it?

Between my daughter's current night wakings and temper tantrums to rehabbing our post-op dog, working a full-time job and taking on most of the housework, cooking and appointment making, lately I'm feeling like I couldn't be stretched more thinly. And yet, I could be. If I got sick tomorrow, I'd still have to get up and do it all. And I would.

It makes me a little scared for having another child to fit in the mix, but somehow I'll manage. Because that's what Moms do.


Weeks Along: 25! In just 2 weeks I will be in the 3RD AND FINAL TRIMESTER! How did that happen?!

Current Symptoms: The dreaded pregnancy heartburn has come. Tums and I are now best buds!

Emotional Status: Pretty happy. I'm starting to panic a little bit about how quickly everything is approaching, but it hasn't started overwhelming me, yet.

Cravings: Clementines! 'Tis the season and I'm loving it.

Body Changes: I've noticed that I'm really starting to slow down. As my belly gets bigger, things like bending over to put on shoes, carrying my toddler and going up and down stairs have become a lot more difficult and frustrating. I remember that it only gets worse into the final months - yikes!

Apparently my boobs have decided that they're going to just keep growing until the baby is born. I'm not pleased, but my husband is. Last week my daughter saw him trying to cop a feel and yelled at him, "No Dada! Don't touch! Those are MOMMY'S boobies!"

You tell him, girl!!
