Is there anyone who is super positive and active and "feeling it" at this point in their pregnancy? Cause let's be honest. I'm done.
Like totally and utterly done.
I have 11 days to go till my c-section. Less if I can go into labour on my own (and I'm trying) and I have pretty much had it. I just feel gross, out of sorts and not in the mood to do anything. No tv appeals to me. No books appeal to me. Sleeping does appeal, but I can't sleep uninterrupted anymore. Between peeing and heartburn and every.little.noise waking me up I'm just cranky and uncomfortable.
And then there's the food thing.
If you know anything about me you will know that I struggle with weight. Want to know why? In a nutshell I'm an emotional eater. If I'm stressed I eat. If I'm happy I eat. If I'm sad I eat. If I'm angry I eat. And I eat when I'm hungry in addition to my moods. That is bad.
What's weird, is that I can't eat right now. I'm losing weight. I know this is good. I'm not complaining about losing weight. But, when you lose a vice ... that's weird. I mean, it's like quitting smoking. It's great and all, but when you're moody it's not like that pack of gum is particularly appealing.
I don't know what's wrong. I think this is pretty normal. At this point in my pregnancy with Doodle I had already had him (or was in labour) so I have to admit I wasn't ready for this sudden feeling of drifting. The feeling of trying to balance stuff I want to get done with stuff that I need to get done.
Like, does washing all the baby clothes jinx my desire for an early labour? Logically no, but try to explain that to me. So instead I'm trying to line up fun stuff. Today I dyed my hair (and I love it!). Tomorrow I'm off for a pedicure, I think. Keeping positive.
Weird weird weird emotions. I'm so ready for this baby!
