Pregnancy Psychosis

Okay, it's official...I'm entering into third trimester pregnancy induced psychosis. I am crying at anything, griping about everything, and comfortable in nothing. Please pray for my poor family who has to endure such a mom/wife. Today Colin made me cry for commenting that my legs looked like tree trunks due to the pitting edema. It's actually completely true, and doesn't really hurt my feelings because I know it will go away within a few days of giving birth, but I cried anyway because the swelling just makes me feel so uncomfortable. It's somewhere in the 100's outside today. Depending upon who you ask it got up to somewhere between 103 and 107. I don't think the a/c is working properly. Also, I don't think the refrigerator is properly cooling the water. It still feels just lukewarm to me. I cried twice at church on Sunday. Why do I do that? I hate it when I do that! Unfortunately, I'm learning that this is all a part of the joys of the last few months of pregnancy for me. Not everyone acts like this, I know it's true. I'm not trying to make excuses, just giving reasons. Really, just consider this your public service announcement. "We interrupt this regularly scheduled personality to fine tune the body of the next coming Gunn child. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please stand by..." (really loud annoying beep - actually that's the sound of me whining about the heat)

That is so funny. The sad thing is- that everything that you said about yourself...could be applied to me also right now...and i am not pregnant and i do not have edema.

Hang in there, Emily! We are praying for you. I know it is difficult. (Stacey obviously knows much better than I)

You reminded me that the last few weeks with Luke I was convinced our fridge was broken or someone was leaving the door open. Even a shower with the water as cold as it could get was still lukewarm! I love you, sis. You are doing a great job. It's almost over!

My name was under an old blog name. This should be the right one. ;)

Dear Lady, I felt the same way in Virginia Beach. My legs were all tree trunky too. My hearfelt sympathy. But you are having a Gunn! The world needs more Gunns!

Emily, there are frequent Sundays when I cry at church, so that can't be ALL pregnancy! I'll continue to pray for you & all you meet, just in case the message about pregnancy psychosis actually comes out of your mouth! Amy :)
