As crazy as it feels..., I am entering the big 30 week milestone of pregnancy this week. Going from 20 to 30 feels like we are getting much closer.
It has been an interesting journey... the least to say.
I wish it was all happy and smiley here but between busy schedule with shop, watching/guiding Roo grow, and my not-so-coping-pregnancy hormones have brought a lot of ups and downs in last seven+ months so far... I know it's probably very normal for a lot of things to feel unusual during pregnancy. One thing I started to notice is perhaps my blood pressure (or blood sugar) is little irregular... my body sometimes shuts down so abruptly that I can't even spare my brain to want to explain what's going on to Frido but simply close the door behind me to drop to sleep. Then I wake up feeling just fine next morning... It's a really weird feeling. I am not sure if it's major enough to call up the doctor but it is certainly not the way I usually am.
Although the adventure of the second pregnancy has been rather rough, I am emotionally coming around the corner to embrace the transformation that is going on inside. I mean... how crazy is it that our body can create an entirely new person???
I am making a conscious effort to give myself a chance to slow down to take care of myself... and the baby. Maybe it will never be as much as I did during the first pregnancy (I was lifting weight, walking 4 miles/day, doing yoga and swimming and went on the camping trip to Joshua tree at 34 week??? How did I do all that??) but as much as I can right now... today with the given circumstances. It is such an amazing privilege to carry this responsibility and I do want every day of next two-three months to count as a positive inspiration for a new life...
