Second Trimester Thoughts, Part 3
~ Oh the Heartburn!

Gas and heartburn seem to be my constant companions lately. Seems like I can't each much of anything before the heartburn sets in. And I just remain gassy all the time. How embarrassing! I ate meatloaf for lunch today. I LOVE meatloaf, but it has remained with me since noon. It's now 7:30 p.m. and still bothering me!

Around 3:00, I became so sleepy and tired today. I almost fell asleep at my desk. It almost feels like the early pregnancy days when I would fall asleep at the drop of a hat. This time though, it's more exhaustion than sleepiness.

There's still so much on my mind. As long as it seems that October will arrive, the closer it seems to be coming. It's only three months away. And somehow, I feel deep down that I won't go the entire 40 weeks. I feel that the baby will come sooner, probably early October, and possibly even September. I don't know why, but I've given myself a four week early window for the baby to arrive. I don't know why I feel this way, I just do.

The other night I woke up at about 2 a.m. with a huge craving for milk. So, I just had to get up and get a big glass. This is crazy! I guess I really haven't been getting enough and my body truly needed it. Maybe that's why I craved the pancakes last week around 2 a.m. as well. See, whenever I eat pancakes, I HAVE to have a nice glass of milk too!
