this past week i have felt frustrated, tired, restless and a little grumpy. i am tired of wearing maternity clothes, i have aches and pains i didn't have with cooper and have a serious case of insomnia. my precious husband frequently hears me whine "i just want to sleep" at some point during the night. basically, i am over being pregnant and 13 more weeks feels like an eternity.

and then i had a two realizations..... i have been pregnant 15 out of the last 20 months! no wonder i feel the way i do.

and two, i have a completely different relationship with the bean in utero than i did with cooper. we interact during the day, i have a sense of his little personality, he makes me laugh and i cant wait to meet him, making being pregnant for so long worth it.


  1. Lucinda, you are soo not alone in your 'pregnant' feelings! I had 3 babies 18 months apart, and still sometimes remember those feelings. We support you, and look forward to the day we get to see a picture in full, living color of your new 'masterpiece'.
    A hug,

  2. It takes a woman's body a full 2 years to entirely recover from a pregnancy. But woman can be very resilient and so can you.
