Last night was the first real wash of pregnancy hormones that I've truly noticed, in terms of it turning my world upside down. I mean, yesterday was just a rough day: I did too much, was gone for too long, got lost trying to vote, didn't bring enough food or water with me, etc. Oh, and now I've been getting that lovely first tri nausea every evening. Blech.
Normally, though, I am able to move on. Yesterday, not so much. I just couldn't hold it together, and it frustrates me when I can't figure out why I'm crying.
Talking with DH, I figured that part of it is that yesterday is really the first day, honestly, that I've thought, "I am over this whole pregnancy thing." Physically, I mean. But on the other hand, I'm partly terrified of having a baby, and how it is going to change things, etc. We're also not logistically ready for Squirt, either; still lots to do. So it's like I am tired of being pregnant, but I can't let myself WANT to be done yet, because I'm not ready for what comes after labor! Which just makes me feel almost stuck, emotionally. Solution: cry!
