I'm having a rough time. I cried five times yesterday. Five! And it was over the silliest things. I have been really depressed and can't seem to shake it. It's like all the problems I was having in my first trimester seem to be returning as I enter into the third trimester. I suppose it happens this way for most people...I'm just trying to get through it. My eating has been really bad. It's like I'm sinking into this dark hole and the only thing that makes me feel better is lots and lots of food.
On a happier note, I have been getting excited looking at baby items and getting ready for a baby shower. I am having my first one (with only 5 people, lol) at the end of December. My girlfriends from NC are coming to visit and we will be having a girls' weekend in Myrtle Beach with a mini informal baby shower of sorts. I am really, really looking forward to that! I get excited when I check my registry and find things that say "Purchased"! I already have received a diaper bag, some receiving blankets, some baby wipes, and a $50 gift certificate in the mail from my friends that are too far away to attend any baby showers.
All I can say is, ONLY 14 MORE WEEKS TO GO. I hope this hormonal rollercoaster will start to be done then, with no major post-partum issues. I'm interested to hear about anyone's "baby stories" and how you felt during/after childbirth and how you settled into motherhood... any information you can tell me is good, good stuff.
