Due to the growing bump, I haven't been able to reach down to touch my toes or even easily cross my one leg over my other.
So a few weeks ago I removed my nail polish on my toes and resigned myself to boring toe nails for the rest of this pregnancy.
Well, a strange thing happened - I started resting more (as per the doctor's orders "Marcia, we want to keep those babies in there as long as possible") and amazingly enough, instead of feeling more like a granny, I feel much more flexible.
After a day or two, I noticed I could pick up things from the floor much easier than before so I decided to paint those toe nails a lovely, bright red.
And do you know how cheered up I am? Every time I'm in the shower or getting dressed and I see those lovely, bright nails, I smile :)
Which just goes to show, small things make a big difference.
Now what can you do to cheer yourself up?
