Random thoughts...

I want to take a nap. I know... its only noon, but just working my normal 7.5 hour day is really wearing me out. I'm only 22 weeks pregnant right now... what will I do at 30... or 36!!! The 1 hour commute each way... plus work... is leaving me exhausted. I could TOTALLY take a nap in my office right now... humm... maybe I will. ;)

My back hurts. I know, the complaint of every pregnant women. But again, aren't those women like 9 months pregnant... with HUGE bellys!! I'm only 6 months (sorta)... and my belly is little. And yet... its starting to get uncomfortable to sleep (even with the glorious Snoggle pillow). I've been sitting at my desk since around 8:30... and I've gotten up about three times... I'm now slouched over "Ed Bundy Style"... to help ease the pressure off my back. I may need to start working and standing at my desk - think that will work?

And at the risk of TMI (after all... my brother does read this on occasion)... apparently all my bras are too small. I put on a bigger one today... and I feel like its cutting off my circulation across my chest! Maybe I should run to Victoria's Secret during lunch!

Oooo, but to end on a high note... I'm completing my Ed Bundy look with my hand on my belly (no, not in my pants)... 'cause I can feel Baby C moving all around right now!!! And occasionally on the outside too!! :)

Well at least your hand isn't in your pants....you're doing good in my book.

You SHOULD take a nap in your office...just crawl underneath George Costanza style. So neat that you're feeling the little guy so much now.

I remember the back pain well! It was like my muscles couldn't handle their job anymore! Could you bring in one of those big exercise balls? They helped me a lot - I sat on it at my desk.

Don't go to VS - stick to Target at this point! I have had to change sizes twice, not counting using the bra extenders in between that sometimes so don't waste your money on an expensive bra - who knows how long you'll be in it!

Oh, Alison, I hear ya! Remember I was JUST THERE!

And the bra thing...yikes. I know everybody told me about how their boobs got bigger, but mine seemed to stay the same with my CHEST getting bigger! I went from a small 36 to nearly 40 with Leslie, but the cup size never changed.

Okay...now I've ventured into my own TMI, huh?

You do whatever you need to do at work. You have my permission!

I agree with Stephanie - get cheap bras. You'll wear them for such a short time.

All your pains are normal for where you are at. I remember thinking around that stage..."geez, I thought you just got a cute belly and popped a kid out...whats with all this pain and discomfort!"

This too shall pass!

I remember "taking lunch" in a storage room and napping. I even needed to do that during the day a few times. Just remember even if you are just sitting your body is expending as much energy as if you were mountain climbing. If your body is telling you to rest, do it. Obviously not during a meeting, but if you "make up" the time you miss your employeers shouldn't have a problem with you catching a few zzzz's.

I found after a while I needed to wear a light weight bra at night.

I so hear ya!!! I also just put a bra extender in my bra a few weeks ago. So much cheaper than a new bra!
