I'm one of those people who generally believe that if you want to do something then you should just get on and do it.
And I knew that at some point in my pregnancy obviously some things I'd just have to accept I couldn't do.
Up until nearly a fortnight ago I was still climbing ladders to paint walls and generally doing everything as normal. It's finally hit me that I need to slow down and think more about taking it easy.
This is not easy to do. I find it very hard to relax and do nothing. I can sit on the sofa and to all intents and purposes look relaxed but my mind is in constant overdrive listing all the things I could and should be doing.
Today is no exception. Despite some kind of stomach upset which has had me being sick and managing pain all I can think about is getting organised and finishing off jobs that are outstanding.
Somebody please teach me how to switch off.
