the home stretch
Today I have completed my 27th week of pregnancy, and according to most calendars I have seen, this means I am beginning the third trimester. I can't believe we're in the final third already — although I have to say, my body is feeling it. It's harder for me to lift Daniel for long stretches of time; I get out of breath walking up the basement stairs; my lower back is chronically sore, and I've got something wierd going on with my right hip joint that makes it even harder to get around, especially with a 22-pound load in my arms. I've been to the chiropractor twice in as many weeks, but it's not helping. Oh well ... just three months until we get to meet this little guy! I won't be toasting that thought with champagne tonight, of course. I'll be lucky if I'm still awake at midnight.
