Am I really doing this again?

As you all know, I'm 7 and a half months pregnant.  While incredibly relieved and happy to be done with school, I am super uncomfortable.  Seriously, was it this way with JH?  I remember complaining a lot but with this pregnancy, it's gone to a new level.  I thought maybe not having to wear a bra every day for school would make me feel better- no.  The huge belly and sensitive skin has decided to drive me cray cray (yes, I use that phrase in real life and quite often to be honest).  I came across this little gem that I wrote when I was 8 months pregnant with JH.  It almost sums up what I'm feeling this pregnancy.

Oh how I miss being able to stand, without wincing or rushing to the nearest bathroom at hand
Oh how I miss being able to bend, without grunting or losing my breath by the end
Oh how I miss being able to see my toes, that are apparently swollen and look like sausage rolls

Take me back to the days when I could sleep through the night, and sleep on my stomach!  I miss that delight
Take me back to the days when all my clothes fit, and I could lift boxes without giving a ….
Take me back to the days when I ruled my body, and I wasn’t constantly feeling so haughty

Why does it feel like I’m turning eighty?  I can barely get up, what’s wrong with you Sadi?
I guess there are those times when I lie down in my bed, and I forget all those terrible things that I dread
I feel movement and life springing forth,  At that moment nothing can extinguish my torch.
I haven’t yet seen his hands or eyes, but I know he’s waiting and just as excited as I.
The discomfort will continue until the very end, yet those things will eventually mend
And I will be a Mother of a baby boy, no one can take away that kind of Joy J

I can't wait for this little girl to get here.

  1. I have felt that way through this pregnancy too. It just seems like everything is more uncomfortable sooner this time around. (And I'm bigger sooner....bleh.)

    She'll be here before you know it, though! 7.5 months sounds nice...I'm just at 6.
