Working and Pregnancy

Some women work up until the day they deliver. I thought I would be able to do that but on days like today I just don’t think it is going to happen. Everything hurts. There is so much pressure on my belly. I am almost done and have just gotten stretch marks. That upset me. He seems to be growing heavier every day. I don’t know if I can do this for another two or three weeks. At this point I am really hoping he comes early. Maybe if I walk more he’ll come out sooner. I get so tired especially in the middle of the week. Working week I should say. It is getting harder to put in the hours I need. Today I was absolutely delirious at work. I couldn’t think straight and everything hurt. I felt like crying every time someone asked how I was doing. I find it hard to keep a pleasant manner when I’m tired and hurting, much less stay on task.

I find it amazing how much advice I’ve been given since I have been pregnant. The latest trend in advice is recommendations on what to eat/take to make the baby come out. So far it has been steak and broccoli, mexican, anything spicy, anything that will create a bowel movement, and my personal favorite, castor oil with soda. Apparently, these have all worked for women trying to push their labor along. I will know I’m in bad shape when I go shopping for castor oil.
