The day didn't improve much due to some very unpleasant tasks on my to-do list, which included speaking to OB offices about the possibility of coming in to see them as my backup for my planned homebirth and informing various volunteer jobs that I need to cut back on my participation or quit.
As a result I had my first killer run of heartburn for this pregnancy. Yuck. Topped off by the odd and new-but-familiar sensation of my ab muscles being stretched beyond belief. After a good night sleep, I think that the baby and/or my uterus must have been growth spurting yesterday causing my hormones to reel out of control and my belly to feel like it was being filled beyond capacity. Or that is what I am choosing to believe... because I couldn't possibly be responsible for crying like a two year old, right?
Here is to a better weekend for all of my pregnant and non-pregnant friends.
