Everything hurts today. I blame this growing child. And my sudden massive increase in fiber intake. (Remember how I was gonna eat 'healthy'? Well, apparently, it was too much too soon...this much fiber and my body has turned into a solution to our nation's energy crisis. No more off-shore drilling required, I've got enough gas to get us through the next few generations.)
ANYWHOO...So, I'm in all this weird pain. I called my Mama and was telling her about all my symptoms -- Can't breath, can't move, sharp pains in my belly, sides, lower back and lower abdomen, occasional nausea, ridiculously acidic heartburn, unshakable exhaustion, aaaand swollen ankles -- and she goes, "Sounds like you're pregnant"
Suddenly 15 weeks sounds like an eternity. Especially when I consider the fact that I'm gonna get a LOT bigger and it's gonna get a LOT hotter. Someone tell me how I'm going to survive this. Then smack me for being such a baby about it. Actually, maybe don't do that today, because in general I think I've been doing pretty good about staying positive, so this is my well-earned 'day of whining'. And that's what I'll tell God tonight in my prayers. Think He'll go for that excuse?
So to sum it all up:
