16 weeks
I am so tired.  And tired of having to pee, and back aches, and hip pain, and eye strain head aches, and not being able to brush my teeth without puking, and round ligament pain, and heartburn, and looking fatter than I should, and weird cravings, and weird aversions, and my deoderant not working, and the new mustache (eww).  And there are still five more months and its going to get worse.  But, I am grateful to be pregnant.  I am grateful to feel the little nudges and rolls.  And the silly things my children say about babies in bellies.  And an amazing doctor. (see http://abovebeyondbirth.blogspot.com/2013/01/the-amazing-dr-cummings-and-his-wisdom.html?m=1 for more info.)  My dream would have been a homebirth.  But the midwife group said they would be more comfortable if I delivered in a hospital.  But, I did finally find a doctor who wasn't going to insist on bedrest at 36 weeks and a c-section at 38 weeks.  Now, I just need to facelift my house before school is out and it's too hot to want to deal with it.
