Today I reached my halfway point, 20 weeks or 5 months! I had my monthly appointment, as well, and everything looked “perfect” according the the midwife.
Speaking of 5 months being halfway… Has anyone really done that math on that? It’s not possible for 5 months to be half of 9 months. Really, a women is pregnant THROUGH 9 months, and on the due date, a women is hitting her 10th month or 40th week!
How come they don’t say 10 months? Hmmm!? It’s a conspiracy I tell ya! Heehee.
Though, in all honesty, I am seriously enjoying being pregnant and another month wouldn’t bother me at all. However, I am in my second trimester and it is called the “honeymoon” trimester, so hopefully I can say the same thing in two months or so.
Oh, also, I’m happy to announce that I’ve gained 3.5 pounds since my last check-up. I am really relieved about that since I was worried for a while there that I wasn’t gaining enough weight.
I mean, seriously, you can’t go into labor and birth without some “reserves” or else you’ll tire out too fast. Also, as I plan to do it the “old fashioned” way, I don’t want to be tiring out and getting extra cranky because I’m underweight and hungry! I’m already going to be dealing with a number of other things, mainly the pain, because I’m not getting any help from any type of drug.
So, hopefully, I can keep it up and gain the recommended 1 pound per week, give or take in a given month.
