39 Weeks, 3 Days

  • It’s too hot.
  • Sitting up straight hurts––much better to sit in a chair that leans back.
  • No appetite until about 6 PM.
  • Want to be alone, preferably inside a freezer.
  • I have no idea what my life is going to look like in a week, maybe a week and a half on the outside. It’s like trying to imagine a color you’ve never seen before.
  • As scary as pregnancy is, at least you know that a lot of what happens/might happen is outside of your control, so fretting is not going to make it any better. That’s a little bit liberating.

  1. “No appetite until about 6 PM” because that’s the witching hour

    “A color you’ve never seen before” is weirdly apposite. The love completely changes you and your life in an instant. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
