glowing, my arse
I have been such a ball of fun lately. I truly feel like I've had only a handful of days where I felt physically fine. There's always something - aches and pains, heartburn, nausea, piles, headaches, chronic colds/allergies, sleeplessness, fatigue, lizard skin, constipation one minute and diarrhoea the next, wind, and Dropitis (the condition in which you cannot pick anything up without dropping it). I have no short term memory and I always want to fall asleep immediately after eating supper. I can't move without making weird noises. I can't sit at my desk for very long because it makes my bum numb. I can't stand for more than a few minutes at a time. I haven't shaved my legs since September.
To top it all, I've now got an irrational fear of going into labour early. There's no good reason for it as I have no preexisting medical condition or history that makes me at risk, it's just another worry. This probably has a lot to do with the fact that our bedroom and ensuite are still under construction and if the baby came now, she'd have to sleep in a drawer.
This is my last pregnancy and I should be cherishing every moment. Maybe it'll all get better when I go on maternity leave at the end of this month. Feh.
