First, Happy Birthday to my sister! Yay!
As for me, I'm in that galumph stage of pregnancy. Even though I haven't gained as much weight as I did last time (50 lbs. last time *gasp*), I still feel unwieldy.
Everything takes a whole lot more effort....
I have mastered the crucial art of the grunt whilst getting in and out of bed. Actually, getting in and out of bed has become a whole involved ritual which also features leaning on the bedroom wall to get my balance before I pass out from dizziness.
Most of my cuter (and that term is VERY relative) maternity clothes either no longer fit, or I am so tired of looking at them I can't bear to put them on. The rest make me look like a very unseasonal houseboat, not a good look for me.
I move at the speed of a sick sloth who may be in the early stages of dementia.
Actually, I may be in the early (or late) stages of dementia myself. I wandered around Walmart today, looking for the two things on my list, and walked out with three totally different things instead.
I tried to walk past the cart in the grocery store and somehow wedged myself against the steam cleaner display so hard I managed to bruise my stomach. How does somebody DO something like that??
Poor J is still assuming I will pick him up when asked, but most days I simply cannot summon the strength and have to put him off in creative ways. When I do give in, I have to make sure we are braced against the wall or the side of his crib or, you know, ballast of some kind so I don't topple over.
And forget about bending over! There is all kinds of clutter on my floor that I despair of ever getting to before this pregnancy ends because I simply can't reach the items in question. All I can do is shake my head in dismay whenever J dumps out one of his baskets of toys because I know the contents will stay right where they land for at least a week, most likely longer, until I can get down on the floor and get them, a feat I will only attempt when the husband is in the house or else I'll have to stay down there until he appears.
In short (long?), I am large, which is a very large problem.
