I had been feeling so awesome and happy, and then this weekend brought, simultaneously, gorgeous weather and ridiculous hormones.
Nothing in particular happened, I just got the Out Of Control weeps all of a sudden. And they JUST WOULDN’T GO AWAY. The first trimester weeps were like little explosions, where I would burst into tears in a second and then 5 minutes later feel normal again. These second trimester weeps are just mean. They’re like the PMS weeps. I hate them. They turn into a weepy spiral where the only solution is to run off to the movies by myself (and the fetus) and watch Jason Segel awkwardly suffer through a dumb “romantic comedy” that could have actually worked if they had respected the character development more and whatever, this is not a movie review blog. This is a pregnancy review blog, and this weekend pregnancy totally bit.
However, it is a new week, I am feeling better, and I started working from home! Not every day – I still have to come to the office most days. But I’m going to try to do it at least one day a week, and see if I can increase it as I go.
Also, I just found out that one of my good friends is pregnant (YOUR SECRET IS SAFE WITH ME), which is awesome, not only because she has been wanting this for awhile but because I now have a pregnant friend. This is my blog; it’s all about me here.
Today the fetus is the size of an ear of corn (hopefully not baby corn), and weighs a pound & a half. I’m starting to look pretty huge. Scary.
