Is a gloomy day better or worse for feeling bleurgy? On one hand, you don’t have to feel bad if all you do is sleep and sit on the sofa all day long, since you’re not missing out on any amazing autumn weather. On the other, maybe a bit of sunshine would do a person good. At any rate, I’m still feeling quite queasy — and lucky that I didn’t have to spend very much of my pregnancy feeling this way! It’s hard to imagine that I could be this nauseated for much longer before either the nausea goes away on its own or the baby arrives, but many women have to deal with worse for much longer. So I’m pretty fortunate.
Anyway, today I mainly lay around in bed, trying to nap (I woke up at 3:00am this morning), and sat on the sofa, looking at the rain coming down. (The photo above is my view from the sofa.) It’s hard to believe that tomorrow is the due date. Even if Baby M is still a little ways away from making her arrival, October 16th seemed so far off at the beginning of the year, and now it’s almost here!
