I think I'm at that point in my pregnancy where I am just thinking I cannot do this and and there is no way I can make it to July 14. I'm hoping this is a normal reaction. It may be my rapid changing body, the heartburn, the acid indigestion, the fatigue, the pains from stretching ligaments or just the major fear of labor. I'm constantly dropping things which apparently is a pregnant thing. I HATE bending over, it's difficult since I no longer have an abdomen to bend and for some reason my legs hurt really bad lately. What's up with that? The thought of going another 3.5 months is beyond me but my body will just do it, right?
And I can see how people can gain much more than the allotted 30 pounds of weight during pregnancy. I am starving!! I've been trying to eat smaller meals and snacks more often but it's really hard to always eat healthy. Plus, resisting certain times to eat is difficult. For example, right before I got to bed, I'm like I could eat a sandwich but I stop myself. If I sleep, I can eat in the morning, food will still be there.
To top things off, Mary started a diet on Monday. Yes, I'm pregnant and Mary's dieting. This is wrong! It's the zone diet - I would say it's good as far as diets go but as the chef of the house I just hate dealing with a diet. It's also very hard to organize low carb veggie meals and she has this huge list of veggies she can't eat and a huge list of stuff I'm supposed to get. So much for my grocery budget. I've done pretty good this week with coordinating meals for her (and me - I'm pregnant and need carbs!) but I can already tell this is going to get old fast. And it's not fair that she can get all fit and skinny while I'm getting huge. Hmph! *pouts*
