Phew! When I get tired, I really get tired. All I did today was grocery shopping, some housework and a few errands with Toby. Then when it got cool in the evening, I took an hour walk up a steep hill in flip flops. Now my feet hurt like I spent all day walking around Disneyland or something. When I got home I cooked up some chili and it was all I could do to stay upright by leaning on the counter as I stirred the big bubbling pot.
I don’t think it’s the baby that’s making me so tired but I do think it’s the added weight I’m carrying around. Now I know what my mom was complaining about when we walked all over Paris for two weeks. It’s amazing how much ten extra pounds can tax your frame. When I sleep, my hips constantly ache. I don’t want to whine and complain because in spite of these physical changes, this has been the most fun stage of pregnancy so far. I love being pregnant. I’m happy almost all the time. I’m so excited about having a daughter and I love my round round belly.
I’m just feel really really really tired tonight. I hope I sleep so well I don’t notice my hips hurting. I keep reading about those body pillows but I don’t see how I’m going to fit that in our full size bed. Toby and I can barely fit as it is. I don’t know what I’m going to do when I get even bigger. Maybe I’ll have to set up camp on the floor.
Right now the floor looks pretty good.
