Why am I so tired (at noon)?
Why am I hungry again (an hour after breakfast)?
Why do the muscles in my hips and butt hurt?
Why am I having trouble falling asleep at night?
Why can't I finish this run without stopping to pee at least twice?
Why can't I lift this?
Why is everything so hard?
I'm pregnant, that's why!
This second pregnancy is a whole new ball game. Last time around I thought I had a hard time sleeping at about 18 weeks. This time, I KNOW what not sleeping is really all about after having a newborn.
Last time I was on summer break with three months left of the pregnancy. This time, I am starting work with about two months to go.
Last time I read books and websites that told me how I should be feeling. This time I can't forget the fact that labor is more difficult than any pregnancy symptom ever.
So when is it going to hit me? When am I going to allow myself to feel pregnant? When am I going to start making excuses?
