Today is the first day of my third trimester! Should I start panicking now that the finish line is near? It’s been a very tough several months going through this pregnancy alone all the while being a single mom to my 12 year old son. Thankfully I have friends and family who have helped but there are many days when I struggle with the loneliness and abandonment from my ex “CS”. For the past few days, I have not wanted to talk to anyone and have just been keeping to myself. This has allowed me to be introspective while still trying to makes sense out of everything. I have been going through different waves of emotions ranging anywhere from anxiety, confidence, fear and guilt.
In addition to the emotional roller coaster, I am starting to feel the fatigue from the first trimester return. I need to start exercising to prepare for labor and delivery but have no energy and motivation. It also doesn’t help that the weather has been cold lately. Wait! I need to stop making excuses for myself and OWN up to my responsibilities and just be the best me I can be!!
