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:
