Daily Ramblings - Where did the couch go?
I'm a few days from being in my third trimester and I can't help but wonder where the hell the last 3 months went. I've heard that the middle three months are the best. I no longer have the nausea from the first trimester, and haven't fully developed the discomfort of the last. Jenny (the masseuse at my chiropractor's office) has been keeping an eye on my progress. A couple of weeks ago, I told her that I was hoarding the massage sessions that my insurance will cover until I really needed her. Back then, she looked at my ankles and said "it's ok, they're not too swollen yet." This week, when I was there for my weekly pilates session, she took one look at my ankles and said "it's time". I'll be seeing her on Saturday, cankles and all.
Meanwhile, the feeling that time is running out is upon me. There's still so much to do and organize, birth classes to be attended, books to be read, things to be made! I remember months ago thinking how much time I have....and now realizing that the time is slipping away quickly. He's strong enough now that his wiggles are evident from the outside of my belly and he seems to be enjoying his yoga first thing in the morning as I'm trying to ignore the alarm clock. Soon enough, he won't just be the alien being that's taken over my belly, he'll be a real life little person. It's weird. People ask us if we're ready and, honestly, we have no idea if we ever will be. Feeling somewhat unprepared and all, I couldn't be happier.
