Well, it's 37 weeks and 1 day. I think I've been pretty good, on the whole - reasonably healthy and happy throughout the pregnancy, with minimal emotional outbursts. But now I think I'm justified in complaining!
I can't do anything without getting short of breath and/or dizzy. I really mean anything. The bending down involved in putting clean dishes away does for me. Common sense prevents me climbing on a chair to change a lightbulb. Going shopping is right out of the question. Home delivery for the win!
I'm always tired. I've been awake for about 13 hours, done almost nothing, and I want to sleep again very soon. I look a bit freaky most of the time with massive dark circles under my eyes.
I feel ill the instant I lie down every evening. Most nights I end up vomiting - it's kind of odd, I really just feel like I've got gas, but I can't seem to burp properly without puking. Oh well, at least I feel better in the stomach afterwards.
I really just want to have this little girl, to see her and hold her and love her and mostly not to be carting her around in my belly 24/7 anymore! How women have been doing this for so long is beyond me; surely there's a more efficient way?!
