Hanging in There

This long absence from the blog wasn’t planned or intentional. I kind of fell into that ‘laze around’ zone and took too long to get out of it (frankly I’m still not out completely). What can I say, this last leg of pregnancy has really kicked me hard in the butt. Thankfully, my pregnancy has been healthy all the way with no complications, but the discomforts are what really bugging me. Being dependent on others for small tasks like bending down, tying shoes, getting up from the bed etc. really makes me feel helpless and in need of a break! Don’t be surprised if I say there were occasional tears. Tears of pain, tears of exhaustion, tears of frustration and tears of impatience. But such moments were rare. Other times, the anticipation of holding the baby in my arms kept winning over. All I want is to look in her eyes and simply forget about all my misery. Though this seems only wishful thinking as of now.
As of today I am one week overdue and 41 weeks pregnant. Frankly, somehow I never thought I’d be overdue. I always had this notion that I’ll deliver within a week of my due date. And here I am… sitting at 41 weeks pregnant with no signs of labor (other than those intense Braxton Hicks). Honestly, I feel like I have been pregnant since forever. And have no shame in conceding that I desperately want my body back now. This little alien inside me has been a guest for too long, and it’s high time she makes an appearance, and relieves me. This waiting game is no fun. Hopefully.. not long now!
Posting a selfie from today. Bathroom selfies for the win! 😉
