Ah, the joys of pregnancy never end. As you know (if you read the About Me section), I am expecting my first child in May. Right now, I’m about 21 weeks pregnant, and the fun just never seems to end. The first trimester was filled with nausea, vomiting, and insane fatigue. Second trimester has been better, for sure, but I get lots of stomach cramping (or “round ligament stretching,” if you prefer the sugar-coated doctor’s version), have to pee at least once an hour, and have begun waddling. Hey, you walk normal while carrying a watermelon in front of you.
To add to this fun, this morning, I woke up screaming, with a lovely leg cramp in my left calf. And, like everything else that’s happening to my body, this is completely normal. Everything is normal. Bleeding gums and nose? Normal. Waking up to pee three times a night? Normal. Oh, your arm fell off? Totally normal, it’s just your hormones. It’ll grow back later.
Forgive my rant, which literally has nothing to do with being green. I promise more information on green living soon, but right now, I’m busy becoming a mommy. Mommy loves you, little one, she’s just a little hormonal. And it’s totally normal.
