Things that are kind of kicking my butt right now in the last 6 weeks:

  • Fatigue--back with a vengeance. Is it possible I feel MORE tired now than in the first trimester? Seriously. I could sleep in every day and go to bed by 7:30 every night.
  • Heartburn. Blah.
  • Sleep, ironically. Tossing and turning all night on the Sno*gle does not a good night's sleep make. Add to that the occasional toddler in the bed, and it all makes for a not-so-restful nor peaceful night despite my pure exhaustion.
  • Papers. Okay, that has nothing to do with being pregnant, but I have so many papers to grade. Why am I giving so much work? I must be a mean teacher!
  • Finding a new car---why do car salespeople suck so badly?
Things I love:

  • Being extremely, visibly pregnant. I love the way my belly looks, I must say.
  • Feeling so close to the baby, who moves and grooves and twists and turns in there all the time. I love it (except when I get an unexpected swift kick to the ribs--ouch).
  • My family. Theo. Wife. Imagining us as a foursome very soon.
  • Halloween and fall. Seriously---who wants to spend fall anywhere else but New England? My heart aches happily just thinking about it. It's especially grand this year since I don't have to blow or rake leaves (at least not for too long). And---I also love Halloween candy. Yum.

Feeling you on the fatigue and the lack of sleep-- wtf kind of cruel irony is this?! I am so excited that Speedy & I will be making it to your area in a year or so :)Our kids will be the exact same age!

Just stopping by . . .and wanted to say that we had a great experience buying our car through COSTCO. We got a great deal and sent another friend through them and they got a great deal . . .i know they have similar programs through BJ's and Sams.
