I didn’t really take many photos today. We went for a mama meet up at a local soft play before heading home.

I exerted myself far too much running up and down a massive soft play structure and I’m completely exhausted and in pain. It’s starting to dawn on me that I need to slow down and realise that I am not invincible, I am pregnant and I can’t act like I’m not much longer. My bump is growing, my body is putting a lot of effort into growing this new life and I need to respect that process by slowing down a little and conserving some energy.

It’s going to mean a lot of little changes, mostly in how I interact with Aeryn. It’s going to be hard, but necessary to get little bean and I through the rest of the second and third trimesters in good health.

Lots of things to think about today.
