Scary utube videos: I am entering into my 34th week of being pregnant and now curiously watching a lot of shorts of screaming women giving birth. It all looks surreal and super scary. I can't get around my head that I will be going through all of that not too many weeks from now. Gulp.
Am I still Me? I am feeling relatively well physically (while ticking off all the pregnancy ails) but not so much emotionally. The mood swings including tearful or angry outbursts feel familiar (reminiscent of my 1st trimester) but this time, I also feel anti-social and can't sleep properly.
Things that keep me awake: Thinking about episodes of Homeland, my bladder, discomfort while lying down, feeling hot and cold within minutes, worrying about the health of the baby, breastfeeding (yikes!) and how best to balance work, baby and marriage in the coming months.
