I’m about 33 weeks pregnant now and a new symptom has crept into my life :. Unabandoned laziness
If you know me in real life you know I’m a very energetic person. For example, I like to jam-pack my days as a Sahm with lots of activities. Banging a great cup of coffee in the morning and then we go to the supermarket, library, playground, dry cleaner … and that’s all before 11am. Fortunately, my two children (ages 3 and 5) are equally high energy so now during breakfast the common question is: “Mom, what are we going to do today,” Because they know I already have a lot of activities throughout mapping out.
But you, something is happening to me with this third pregnancy. All the aches and pains that do not harass me until 36 or 37 weeks with the first two babies are happening now. If I stand up for more than 15 minutes get sciatica pains shooting down my legs back. The muscles in my legs begin to ache from the weight of my uterus. And I’m just tired, me.
So last week when the kids ask, “Mama, what are we going to do today?” I’m very tempted to answer: “What we just sat on the couch all morning may have to urinate until a couple of times and then we’ll all take a nap sounds good?.?”
And not it stops with my children. I feel lazy about everything these days. By reading this I’m sitting on the Mass Pike on the way to Boston for one of my prenatal visits. At the beginning of my pregnancy I looked forward to these trips from the suburbs because spring for a nanny, so it’s an hour alone in the car listening to NPR with no complaints from the rear seats, followed by reading magazines uninterrupted in the waiting room. Happiness! But today really do not feel like schlepping my ass pregnant to Boston. You can not just phone in my reading of blood pressure overnight and FedEx them a cup of my pee ?? That would be soooooo much easier
