Raspberry: 30 Weeks

Dearest Raspberry,

Thirty weeks down, ten more to go? If you're anything like your brother or sister, we have even a little less time than that before your "lease is up."

It will be a trying time for me, though, no doubt. Insomnia and restless legs have kicked in full-gear, a repeat from my experience with your sister. Managing sleep at night every other day seems to be the new norm. And, much like with your sister, I appear to be carrying you rather high, so not only am I occasionally feeling you up in my ribcage now, I am often finding myself short of breath from my inability to properly utilize full lung capacity nowadays.

As low as I carried your brother, however, I still reached a point with him that I could not comfortably sit up straight, which always makes mealtime interesting. This past week, I've definitely reached that point with you.

Have you any more challenges in store for me? Choose them wisely- I'm not sure how much more I can take on in my current, zombie-like state.

One thing I am sure of: it will all be worth it in the end.
