There is only one place I’d rather be this past week …
I am spending the last week of my second trimester utterly exhausted. I have about as much energy as one of my cats…
I feel incredibly guilty too for feeling so tired all the time. Brad says it’s fine you have to do whatever it takes to make a healthy baby … deep down inside I know he’s thinking about those Vietnamese women. He has this theory about Vietnamese pregnant women & he will regularly bring them up if I make a pregnancy complaint. He doesn’t understand how western women can complain
bitch and moan about being pregnant when the Vietnamese women work 18 hours a day in their rice paddies and give birth under a tree at lunch time then return back to work.
So the last 4 days I have had to take a nap after lunch. In my defence I am awake 4.30-5am. Normally i can make it through the day but lately I’m just not up to scratch. Usually by mid morning I am day dreaming about my bed and by the time I’ve had lunch I am virtually comatose. Maybe 34 is just too damn old to be having a baby.
P.S I think all the pregnant Vietnamese women are hiding out under that tree, sipping on Sangria made with rice wine & dozing in their hammocks all day long!
