So I think this is going to be a complaint blog today! ha ha! (lots of complaints come along with being pregnant.... at least for me anyway!)
So like I said, working in the city is tough, while your pregnant and here's why:
- In the first trimester (which in my opinion, is the worst so far), nobody knows your pregnant so they don't get up to give you a seat on the train when you are feeling faint, dizzy, hot, nauseous and just plain awful.
- People run you over, bump into you, and race you for a seat and the sad thing is, it is mostly the men that are doing this!
- In the third trimester (and clearly pregnant) you can't get a seat even if you tried because nobody likes to get up or pretend that "they don't see you" or they are "sleeping". And its hard because the third trimester you are very tired, your winded and out of breath, your legs feel weak, you feel faint and you literally do need to sit down at times.... but no, nobody cares!
- Forget about getting a work out on your own after 28 weeks, you get plenty of it dodging people on the streets! They again, run you over, bump into you, and race you up the block just to catch the light. I literally had to smack some guy in the head with my umbrella today because he felt the need to run into me all to get into a store away from the rain. (Well boy, was he sorry after feeling the wrath of the pregnant lady!!)
Not to mention the baby is getting bigger and running out of room, and boy does he want out! Stretching and pulling are a regular by now. Kicking, punching, poking, and prodding have become a normal part of the day and not to say that any of it hurts, it just becomes more uncomfortable the bigger he gets. The other day I literally felt my entire insides stretch to a shape that I thought was unimaginable by what felt like a somersault in my tummy. I believe Beebie flipped because he was breech a couple weeks back. Either that, or he is going to be a great acrobat someday!
I must say though, despite all of this complaining I have been doing lately (because you know, I do complain when I'm not blogging!), I truly am super happy and excited to meet my little peanut. In just a few short weeks I will be a mother and I can only imagine that it is the best feeling in the world!
