I’m around thirty six weeks pregnant. I’m tired. I feel like the lower half of my body weighs a hundred kilos. I can’t sleep lying on my back. The size of my feet have increased that only the flip flops fits me now. Don’t even mention the elephant ankles at the end of a working day.
My maternity leave, a meager 90 days has been approved so my countdown to my winding down is at 18 days – then a week after (27th) is my due date.
At 37 weeks, babies are considered full term and might come out ANYTIME, whether I like or not or in my case, whether the world is ready or not! Let’s hope the baby won’t come out earlier than expected because:
I am not ready (logistically at least) – I have not even packed my hospital bag completely yet!
I would like to rest a bit to ready my body for battle.
Did I mention that I am tired?
