I'm at that stage in pregnancy where everything is uncomfortable. Breathing, eating, sleeping. Sitting at a computer for half an hour on a day I have forgotten my vitamins is enough to make me woozy and short of breath. Heartburn prevents sleep for hours. I waddle when I walk, and all chairs seem unusually hard. My tummy is tight, unmovable, unstretchy.
I am told I have two more months of this.
I don't remember this pain from past pregnancies.
All I seem to remember is the birth. The experience of holding a new munchkin. It's breathtaking. And earth-shattering. Evidently, it's powerful enough to have allowed me to forget everything else.
