This morning when I woke up I laid in bed for a few minutes. Then the thought of what I had chose to do in just over two months hit me. I am going to give birth AGAIN. I still remember the pain clearly. What the heck am I thinking doing this again, and voluntarily at that. Oh my poor vagina.
Am I stupid enough to have forgotten that once pregnant I would have to give birth? No. I just had a momentary brain lapse, otherwise known as Mommy-Brain. I am mean here I am 28 1/2 weeks pregnant, and just thinking about the pain.
But, I can’t wait to hold this little guy. And then know that never again will I go through the pain of childbirth. Hear that body? One more time and you’re retired.
Weight gain so far: 11 lbs
Cravings (right now): nothing, though I don’t want healthy foods that’s for sure
Morning Sickness: Never ending. I wasn’t this sick with the girls. I want the sickness to STOP.
Sleep: Up until vacation was over, I was sleeping great – time changes may have helped. Now I can’t fall asleep, and wake up a lot through the night. Getting ready for night-time feedings maybe?
While I might complain about the pain I’m going to put myself through again, and the pain in my body from being pregnant I am truly thankfully that we can get pregnant, and without any fertility issues. I know there are many out there that aren’t are as lucky.
