Week 33 – Puppy
Bigger Belly, Bigger Excitement
“When I finally got home, there was this moment of surrender that felt magical.”
It was an emotionally intense week. I had what was clearly the worse day of my pregnancy so far. Suddenly all sort of symptoms constellated in a bad way. It was rough.
The air was suddenly heavy, stuffy and lacking oxygen. The energy bar was discharging very quickly. I got a headache, felt uneasy and it was getting hard to breathe. Then, nausea. Was I going to throw up right there, in front of others? Or a bit later, in the middle of the street? Then, I had some contractions. The baby was moving, kicking my ribs, further squeezing my lungs and pushing my pelvis in all sort of ways. I started feeling light-headed and getting tunnel vision. It could have been a drop in the blood pressure. It was nasty. Of course, I got exhausted and I just wanted to teletransport myself to bed. Preferentially in the dark and absolute silence.
When I finally got home, there was this moment of surrender that felt magical. Lying in bed and letting my body feel and do whatever it needed. And I fell asleep like a rock and slept a lot. Things got better in the morning, much better. In fact, since then, my energy levels have improved. The iron levels are normal again and the mood has been quite good these days.
Above all, I’ve been feeling good and enjoying the pregnancy. Soon, our son will be here and he’s coming with the Spring. It just feels uplifting somehow.
