back to normal
It's been almost a week since I've turned the corner into the "feeling good" stage of pregnancy: hooray for the 2nd trimester! I don't take for granted that I am a woman who only feels poorly in the 1st trimester. I've known a number of women who've thrown up their entire pregnancies, or have been on bed rest and I feel grateful that I can be "me" again after the 1st trimester. I am enjoying my kids anew, feeling like I can let my piles go and not get freaked out, and overall, just give myself GRACE as a mom. It's a good, good place to be.
