Speed Bump

I feel limited.

Entering my third trimester tomorrow, It is getting hard to bend over.  I am too tired to wake up in the mornings.  It is getting hard to go to work.  I feel out of shape, since I stopped working out seven months ago when I became pregnant.

All this is frustrating.  I want to work as hard and accomplish as much as a man, but I feel limited and somewhat betrayed by my biology and being a woman.  I will have to take three months off after the baby is born, and then take breaks every few hours to go pump milk.  My husband doesn’t have to do any of that; for all practical purposes he’s been largely unaffected by our coming baby, except that he comes with me to doctor appointments sometimes.

I’m tired.
