The line up and down my stomach is pretty dark now and runs all the way from the bottom of my chest to my girl parts. At least it's vertical, a slimming line right? I notice people looking at me often now, checking out the bump.
I've been really tired this week; not quite what it was like during the first trimester but nearly. I'm sleeping a half hour later naturally so I'm trying to just let it happen. I also keep straining something in my neck, alternating between the same place on both sides. I'm not sure what's causing it, whether it's the sleep position I have to be in or stress or simple fatigue. It doesn't develop after exercise so I don't think that's it. I'll be mentioning this to Doctor R. next week.
Had dinner last night with four of my dearest friends; we were all together for the first time since Christmas! (someone's always missing from our get-togethers). It will be Thanksgiving or Christmas again before we are all together, but we always pick up where we left off. Ann is heading back to Ithaca for her last year of grad school, but before that her sister is giving birth today! Her second child, a girl, by scheduled C-section. She's in my thoughts today.
