I'm really having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I'm over a third of the way through this pregnancy. I mean, according to babycenter, I actually have a human looking mini baby in there! This whole experience just seems to be flying right past me. I feel so incredibly lucky, because I've really been enjoying being pregnant. (For the most part. I don't think anyone enjoys yaking up Indian food....) But I'm still just in awe of what is happening inside my body. It's still hard for me to believe that I'm growing a human.
More specifically, a human the size of an apple this week.
The hardest thing for me so far has been my body. It's been really hard for me to accept the changes and the growing numbers on the scale with the dignity I'd hoped I would have. While I should never compare myself to other women, let alone other pregnant women, I've noticed that I'm bursting out of my pre-pregnancy clothes at an alarmingly quick rate. Scary stuff.
I've just got to suck it up. Hopefully baby is getting smarter with each pound I gain. (And screw the babycenter weight updates!)
As another counter measure - I picked up this DVD.
Hopefully it will kick my ass into gear!
