I seem to have hit sort of an emotional wall these past couple of weeks. I have found myself extremely weepy over the littlest thing, which I know is a very common pregnancy side effect. I also just feel kind of sad in general, which is not my usual state of mind. I find myself upset over small things.
There is no one reason I can pinpoint for my sadness. I just seem to be extra sad and prone to tears. For example, this weekend we finally. . . drum roll, please. . . emptied out Emma's nursery. What a relief to get this major obstacle done! This was the only part of the project that I couldn't do myself and it was a huge stepping stone. Why, then, would I be sad about it?
Well, as M took the queen sized bed down, I remembered when we bought that bed. It was our first major purchase as a couple. We have had that mattress longer than our dogs. I spent a lot of time in that bed nursing Will, as there was a t.v. in that room, so I could comfortably lie there and nurse him, watch crappy 2 AM television, and let M rest in peace. So, I was in tears by the time he had hauled the mattress downstairs. My husband and my MIL were a little nonplussed by it, Will thinks it's funny when I cry and he laughs at me. This actually helps me to laugh at myself, too, since I know I am being silly.
I also know this weepy, overemotional, oversensitive stuff is just part and parcel of the whole pregnancy bag. I remember having these phases when I was pregnant with Will. I just can't wait until it passes!
