ok, I'm feeling WAY much more pressure and achiness in the uterus/cervix than I did until the very end last time. My whole belly just feels really heavy all the time, and last night I had an ache that stretched like a line the whole length of my middle down to my thigh. It was really specific- like the way the navel hernia feels. So weird! Is is just being out of shape this time?
I am really glad that there is some time left, in a way, becasue I need to eat better and exercise more, and would like to think that there is still time to make sure I've done what I can to make this a health pregnancy. As to work, I plan on working right up to birth, but then afterwards will play it by ear. Last itme I planned on being back by eight weeks, maximum, but she never slept and I was a zombie. This time I am making no commitments to any projects or people for the whole spring semester, and if I get things done it will be a pleasant surprise.
