Today is the second day in a row that I have stayed home.
I stayed home yesterday because I wasn't feeling well and was having some dull pain on my right side. Although that pain is gone today, I still don't feel all that well. It's probably because I've been sitting on my ass for almost 48 hours doing nothing but computering, watching what I affectionately call "pregnant TV," napping and eating. Both yesterday and today the only times that I went outside were to go and get the mail.
I suppose that I would have gone some place today if I actually had some place to go. But that's the thing about being pregnant and being at home- none of your other friends are pregnant, and they all go to work. The other bummer is that while it is spring, it's not quite warm enough to go to the beach. Hopefully it will never get too warm outside for the duration of my pregnancy. I'm not one to deal with the heat all that well, and me pregnant + complaining is never a good thing.
It seems that the big activity that I have completed today is that I took out the Swiffer Duster and dusted the upstairs. Wow, what an accomplishment! If I actually bothered to do my hair, that probably would have been my big activity for the day. But alas, I showered and threw on sweats so I have essentially done nothing to make myself feel good in any sort of way.
I'm just over halfway done with this "being pregnant" thing. To be honest with you, none of it is what I expected... and I really haven't felt well the entire time I've been pregnant. If I'm not nauseous, I've got a migraine. If I don't have a migraine, I'm exhausted. If I'm not exhausted, I'm in a less than favorable mood. Then there is the whole contractions thing- talk about scary! So, add on being scared to any of those things that I'm usually experiencing and you've got a Molotov Cocktail.
I'm really happy that I'm having a baby- don't get me wrong. I just wish that the whole process didn't feel so bad. I'm sure that when the baby is born I'll forget all about how bad I felt and want to do it all over again. But for now, I keep counting down the weeks until this will all be over.
