Life lately has been getting a tad bit harder than normal, physically and emotionally. The physical changes your body go through during pregnancy are not anything you can prepare for.
For starters everyone is different, so no matter what your friend tells you, your situation is going to be different. Last night I couldn’t sleep, I have this excruciating upper back pain that prevent me from sleeping. I woke up in tears, mostly emotional because my husband is on another scout camping trip and I never wished for his hands on my back than I did last night.
I know this is all part of the process, and there are women who have had it much worse and better than me. That knowledge doesn’t make it easier though. We all have our trials. This one today is mine. I find relief in the major movements he has in my belly and a hot bath. For now though, I will try to look at life in less black and white and more color!
