This weekend, we hit the 20 week mark – and that’s actually the halfway mark for a normal pregnancy, but having seen the stats this past weekend at the multiple birth classes, there were NO deliveries of twins past 40 weeks at the Civic, thus…uh…we are past the halfway point.
What does this mean? Um…apparently it means my feet are all of a sudden gonna start swelling (’cause that’s what happened). It means that I finally seem to be growing quickly (and by deduction, so must the babies be growing). And it means that I’m starting to finally get a little uncomfortable. I have had a wonderful pregnancy so far, but I know the tough part is on the way. And the recent onslaught of heartburn hasn’t been a welcome addition either! BUT.
It’s all worth it, right?
And so I have had a bummy, poopy, hormone-down kinda day today, but because the heat is on outside and the sun is shining, I am going to try to turn the tide by hitting the outdoor city pool shortly. Nothing better than swimming under the sun. Granted, there are guaranteed to be a number of unsupervised kids splashing around, so tranquil it won’t be, but then…my life won’t be very tranquil for much longer, so I best get used to that environment, hmmmm?
How about you? What did you do to get out of a hormonal funk while pregnant?
