One of the common questions you get as a pregnant woman is “How are you feeling?”
And I’ve been so incredibly fortunate to have had a pretty great pregnancy. Minimal sickness, manageable hormonal shifts, enough energy to still move and groove…..
…but the last few weeks have been much tougher. And while I’m glad that the first 6-7 months of my pregnancy have been easy breezy, the last few weeks have made up for it in spades. Out of nowhere work has become unbearably stressful. I courageously thought that I could spend my last few weeks working and keep up my strength as I approach birth day. But the hallways are getting longer. The stairs are steeper. The work harder.
All I want is a week at my mom’s house to be pampered and fed to my hearts content….enjoying her cooking over great conversation. Of course, she’s in the Philippines so that’s not going to happen right now.
Fortunately, the holiday weekend is right around the corner. Then I have 4 days left of work. I hope to make it go by as painlessly and quickly as possible. Then my time, for a few days at least, will be all mine. Ahhhhh! I can’t wait!
