Tired, Swollen and Sore

Please do not get me wrong, I am so happy to be pregnant and so happy to be able to have this baby. But I would be remiss if I did not talk about the difference between the second and third trimester. Good lord. Sure I was vaguely uncomfortable in the first trimester: slight nausea all day, tired, anxious. But I breezed through the second trimester, barely even phased by discomfort. I continued to work out everyday, do my yoga once a week and take 3-4 mile walks daily. Then wham! The third trimester has come. I have horrible pelvic joint pain, am exhausted all the time, hot and sweaty, swollen and short of breath. And I have nine more weeks to go. I love this baby and cannot wait for her to come, but she needs to give her mommy a break. This whole sharing my body thing was fine until the 3 pound mark, but as it becomes more difficult, I am increasingly ready just to have her!

And now for a break from the litany of complaints, some levity in the form of a caption contest! Yay! Can anyone come up with anything good for this:

If you think that you are going to get your body back from S when she come out, you are mistaken. Your body will be solely your baby's untill you are done nursing. So, R, enjoy your wife while it's still possible :)

First off, Hang in there! I can only imagine that the changes going on inside are rough--- but focus on the end result...a beautiful girly girl :)

As for a caption...I'm having a hard time thinking of one-- when it comes to me, I'll post it
