when I feel WAY pregnant. My feet are starting to swell a bit, I'm having these behind the eyeballs headaches, and I am just TIRED. I suppose that I didn't feel this way with Isabella because of several reasons, one being I was about 15 pounds lighter, I wasn't working, and I spent my days couching at my grandmother's who provided me with decaf tea and enough turnip greens and corn bread to make anyone feel good. I passed the time with a novel and a porch swing, enjoying the incessant thumping in my belly. THe only setback during this time was the appearance of HEARTBURN and lots of it, but that was only at night, and hey, if I was up to late, well, I'd just sleep IN. With my dogs. In the peace and quiet.
Now? I get up at 5:30 to get myself and Isabella ready for school, leave the house by 6:45 at the latest, drop Isabella off at daycare, stand out at bus duty, teach all day with only a 45 minute break, coach a girl's trio, pick Bella up from dance or tumbling or daycare, get home MAYBE by five. On Tuesday's and Thursday's my dear husband cooks dinner, but Monday, Wednesday's and Friday's he has class or guitar lessons so Isabella and I fend for ourselves. Then its bath, reading, getting clothes ready to start all over. I get a bit of a break while Isabella watches COPS with her dad.
So, yeah. I'm a bit tired. I am trying to take it easy. Last week I MADE time for myself and read the Twilight series which I LOVED. But I guess that I am not tired without reason, and I definately should not be too hard on myself for not feeling as exhuberant during this pregnancy as I did with Isabella. I definately am excited about the arrival of Amelia Bright, and can hardly wait to see what her little personality is like. If she is anything like her sister, WHOA... look out.
