too far away ... today.

"tell me some things we did in august," i whispered to my husband across the queen sized mattress ...

"we went camping.  i had my vacation time.  it was your mom's birthday," he answered thoughtfully, "why?"

"i'm just trying to see how long ago 2 and 1/2 months feels."

he smirked in the darkness.  i could tell. 

i'd been complaining about how frustrated i am with being pregnant this third time around all evening
how i feel like my entire body could fall to pieces if it wasn't for my skin holding me together. 
how i ache.  everywhere.
how i can't sleep an entire night. 
how difficult it is becoming just to roll over in bed. 
how i'm just not sure that i can really truly make it through another 2 and 1/2 months.

"and??"  he asked.

"all of those things feel like a really long time ago,"  i answered as a small tear escaped down my cheek and rested on my pillow.

My third pregnancy was never-ending, too. It will be okay. Please reference my chocolate comment last month.

Thanks for your sweet comment on dig. Sounds like inspiration you could also use yourself! 2 1/2 months will fly by. You know it will and then. Then you have the perfect addition to your family. Hang in there!

Aww, it sucks waiting. I hated my second pregnancy because I was HUGE and still had to take care of a toddler and it seemed like it would never end but it did. So yours will too. Take a two month long nap, you'll feel better.

It will pass. And I promise you at some point in about March, you will wonder how the nine months went so fast and how your baby can possibly be eight weeks already. I can't promise there won't be more tears.
