- I can eat like there's no tomorrow. It's a serious miracle that I only gained 4 pounds this past month. Don't even tease with a granola bar for a snack either. A snack to me consists of a few cheese and crackers, and orange/apple/pear, a few carrots, and a pickle every now and then--but that's all at the same time. Quickly followed by 16 ounces of water. I don't mess around with my snacks, folks.
- I can sleep anytime! It's never mattered that I'm in the second trimester of pregnancy. You know, that trimester where you are supposed to have all that energy? I do have extra energy and drive and ambition to get my house in order, but it does not take much to wipe me out. For example...The hour and a half that it took me to drive to and wait for my 15 minute appointment this morning made me ready for a nap. I got home (around 1030), started some laundry, had a tea party with my girl-child, and read a bit...the next thing I know, I'm being woken up by a hungry 3 year old. It was 130. I don't mess around with my naps, folks.
- I can pee anytime. Again, this little side effect is supposed to ease up a bit during your second trimester. Oh no! Not for me. I always have to pee. The most annoying part of this is the fact that when I go, it's a few little dribbles and then that's it. Twenty minutes later I'm back in the bathroom. Talk about frustrating. As soon as I get comfortable on the couch or at the table for school, I have to pee. School would take us maybe an hour at the most, but because of my frequent urination problems (and need for snacks and occasional rests of my head on the table), our school day is often lengthened to an hour and a half - two hours. I wake my husband up at least twice during the night to go. You'd think that he'd get used to it, but he never has. I don't mess around with my need to pee, folks.
