Well that was quick!
The second trimester came and went in no time at all, leaving me a little confused, befuddled, and bewildered about all the stuff that one has to do to actually prepare for life with this little baby on the outside of my belly. It’s been so lovely and enjoyable so far that I haven’t bothered to really consider all that’s about to happen. We’ll call it “living in the now” and “being present” rather than “denial” because it sounds much more pleasant and zen.
Besides the back pains I’ve alluded to before (and this awful illness), pregnancy has been really good to me so I just hope I can carry on as-is for as long as possible. The third trimester can’t be that bad…right??
