I made it through my first week back to work! It's been exhausting, but I made it! I get out of breath really easy, so I make sure to take it as easy as I can. It's difficult trying to go back to a semi normal life after being in bed for 3 weeks.

It's nice that I can appreciate this pregnancy in ways that normal, "fertile" cannot. I think most women do know how much of a miracle it is to have a baby (or babies!) growing inside of you, but after trying for so long, it is special. There are things that are uncomfortable, and I'm sure will get even more uncomfortable, but I don't really complain about them, I know it comes with the territory and it is just really cool to be growing lives inside of you!

And let me just say a little about Pregnancy Brain! I have it bad. I used to be very good at spelling and grammar. Now, sometimes I can't remember how to spell certain (easy) words! And I find myself making stupid usage errors, like using "to" for "too" and not catching it until later, if ever! I think that bugs me the most, but at least I have something to blame it on!

Good to hear that the first week back was okay. I can only imagine what the 'pregnancy brain' is like...I would think it would be a little frustrating at times, but of course, definitely worth it!!
