I had my midwife appointment today and something she brought up kind of bothered me. She aksed me about weither or not I felt I could handle the physical aspect of birth since I have been saying how I'm tired b/c I don't get to the gym or out for a walk as much as she thinks I should. I don't know why this bothered me so much, but it just felt like she was doubting me and putting me in a place to doubt myself. Really, she has no idea what I do every week or every day, how hard I work to take care of my toddler and keep a clean home. How much I have been working getting ready for the baby and still trying to keep up with everything else. Yes, it would be wonderful to go to the gym 3-5 days a week and spend some time by myself, taking care of myself, but how can I do it all? I feel like I'm working pretty freakin' hard for being almost 35 wks pg!
