That about sums up how I feel these days.
I'm glad I won't be preggo again throughout the summer, as I was with Norah, but even now, with 4 weeks remaining until my due date, I feel as though the outdoors are nothing but an inferno, and inside doesn't feel a whole lot cooler to me (we set our A/C at 76 during the day and 74 at night -- yes, I could lower it further, and create a meat locker in the house, but I still don't think I'd be cool enough and I'm too cheap to pay the extra $$$ for running the A/C more). After Norah and I's walk this morning, I had to come in and lay down in front of a fan for a bit, I was so hot.
Aside from feeling as though Antarctica wouldn't be cool enough right now, I'm also battling fatigue that feels like a flashback to the first trimester when I basically felt as though I could fall asleep anywhere, anytime.
I'm actually sleeping pretty decently at night lately, but during the day, I feel as though I could use about about 3 naps to get me through the day. When I was this far along with Norah, I actually DID have that luxury, and I think I slept about 15 hours a day then! Now, I don't really have that option. Still, come about 10 am, I feel beat, so I have been taking the "easy/lazy" parenting route and letting Norah watch about 30 minutes of Sesame Street while I snooze next to her on the couch. The past couple of mornings that I've done this, I've slept so soundly for that half an hour that I've dreamed!
It's a good thing Sesame completely entrances Norah and she doesn't move off the couch as she's watching it; otherwise, Scooter may call Child Services on me.
Thankfully, I am nearly done with my classes and end of term grading, so by this time next week, I can at least sleep in the afternoon. And even though next Friday is Norah's last day of "school" for the summer (she's again staying home with me this summer), again, I can nap during her naptime in the afternoon -- at least until Caleb is actually born.
Then a whole new level of tired begins. But, at least I should feel a bit cooler then, right?
