Can I just tell you how fast this pregnancy is going? Can I also just say how freaking scary it is to know that in 10 weeks (or less), our baby will be here. That is both terrifying and exciting all at once.
But can I be honest with y’all for a few minutes? Pregnancy is no fun. Yes, the end result is amazing, but the process to getting there? Not so much. I can appreciate what all a women’s body can do to bring new life into the world, but damn is it hard! I swear they tell pregnant women they glow just to make them feel better, because I’m 1000% sure that’s just sweat from being hot all the time. Oh, and hey crazy hormones that make me mad at B pretty much once a day. And what super sucks is that I know I’m being irrational, but I can’t stop it anyway. OR completely losing your balance for no reason? That’s fun too. Luckily, I have yet to fall on my ass. And the being so tired I can barely keep my eyes open at work.
And I know that holding my sweet baby Sheffy is going to be worth all of those and then some. I’m not complaining about having the actual child — just the process of getting there, especially these last few “in the home stretch” weeks so far have been brutal. All of the physical symptoms, and then the mental symptoms. All of those fears I had back in my first trimester of, am I going to be a good mom, etc. have all come back times five hundred. I know they say that you’ll never be prepared for this, but that doesn’t make it any better. I. AM. TERRIFIED.
30 weeks down, 10 more to go.
