With that said, I am officially getting tired of being pregnant. I love little Henry kicking around in there but I am so ready to have a normal body again! One that can roll over in the middle of the night without having to use the bedpost and work herself into a sweat! One that can go on a run, one that can eat normally without digestive issues, one that can (males, read no further).... shave herself! God bless my sweet husband for smiling and accommodating during this crazy, hormonal season in life.
I really, by all accounts, have had a great pregnancy. No complications. Sickness during the first trimester but I was still able to work and live life. I have really enjoyed being pregnant, have enjoyed how nice people are to a pregnant lady, enjoyed all the compliments and the "You look so cutes!" But I am ready for the end...ready for this little man to make his way out. 40 weeks is too much! It's too long!
I had a slight hormonal breakdown this morning and then met Bethany at the pool. This was my first time to swim while pregnant and it made me so happy. We put on webbed gloves and did lots of different exercises and treaded water and it was so nice to feel light and share my heart and woes (ha!) with a friend. She told me it was okay to feel this way, okay to vent and let it all out. Then, by the end of the swim, I was feeling much more like myself.
I'm going to try and savor these last couple of weeks of being preggers with Henry. I know life is about to change forever. Maybe I'll surprise myself and miss my huge belly...who knows! Either way, we'll continue on thanking God for making this miracle...even when I pee for the 78th time tonight.
