Normally the next line would be "so little time". Unfortunately, that's not really the problem.
my case, the problem is that anything that involves me sitting and
working on something in my lap results in intense lower rib/upper
abdomen pain. It almost feels like my ribs are bruised or like I did way
too many crunches (of course I haven't done crunches in 7 months so I
know that's not really the problem). I try to be good and write in my
journal but I get a quarter through my entry and I'm already dying. I
bought a ton of fabric so I could make some cute burp cloths. I've
managed two but those were not exactly delightful experiences since they
require leaning over my sewing machine to make.
to make homemade cards, sew a ton of different things, scrapbook, write
in my journal and the list goes on and on. Unfortunately, the only
things I can really manage are sitting in a reclining position on the
couch or lying in bed. Actually, lying in bed is my only really truly
comfortable spot. Even the couch is a bit too restricting for me. For
the last ... well, since about week 13 this has been going on and I'm
just so tired of it. I hate having to go lie in bed at 8pm because it's
the only place to go where I'm not "dying". (Why yes, yes I can be a bit
I guess I should be getting a lot read
since I can definitely read in this position but, for some reason, I
can't even do that. I've been reading books but they're all so "three
star". I need to find another book that I can just tear through. Or at
least one that keeps my interest peaked from start to finish.
have to keep reminding myself that there are things worse than being
uncomfortable. I was not throwing up constantly for the first three
months. I am not on bed rest. I'm not experiencing skull crushing
headaches every day, I don't crave paint chips or clay, I get to sleep
in when I have restless/sleepless nights and I have a wonderful husband
who tries to help make me as comfortable as possible. And, most
importantly, at least I get to experience the aches and pains of
pregnancy as there are many people out there who would welcome the
opportunity but just aren't able.
I guess I just needed to complain for a minute so I could put everything else into perspective.
Hm. I guess finishing those burp cloths isn't the most important thing in the world after all.
Turns out I'll probably survive this minor inconvenience.
