It’s really hard to work when you’re pregnant.
Sitting too long is not comfortable. Waddling to the bathroom every hour is also not particularly comfortable. My simple 15 minute bus ride/ 4 block walk of a commute is kind of a hassle, because the bus is crowded and walking any meaningful distance causes pretty strong Braxton Hicks contractions. I get sleepy after I eat, so after lunch I’m just a drowsy mess.
And by 5, I am clawing to get out of my pants and bra and into a comfy t-shirt.
It’s hard to focus. And I have a lot of work to get in good order for others to do when I’m gone.And my mind is on swaddling, and when should I wash the new cloth diapers, and baby shower thank you notes. And on the ache in my shoulder that I have no idea the source of.
