Here I am at 22 weeks pregnant. In one way it feels as though I have been pregnant forever. In others, like it's flashed by (though mostly it feels a long while).
I am feeling good, but there are so many things I'd forgotten about being pregnant that I truly worry about just how much I have forgotten about looking after a baby (like, all of it).
I'd forgotten that I can fall sleep at the drop of a hat. Give me 10 quiet minutes (ha!) and I can sleep for 5 of them. But the converse side of that is, whoa, the uncomfortableness of having to sleep on your side all the time! I really like sleeping on my back.
I'd also forgotten how, at 5 months pregnant, you're still in that 'is she or isn't she?' stage. To me this is bizarre. I clearly look pregnant. But I was at a get-together about a week ago and mentioned something about being pregnant to three separate people, who all professed to not have noticed anything different about me.
You what??? To me, this bump is massive already.
Anyway... the quest to eat a little less continues, and I think I am doing OK. I am trying to be more considered in my snacking and not always instantly go for the carbs. (However, sometimes the carbs call me and I answer their call.)
Speaking of which, off to make pasta for dinner now...
