Well it is finally summer and getting warmer. Thus far I have been pretty lucky–cool weather = cool & comfe Renee. All-in-all not a bad thing. But with summer comes a lot of activities and that is tiring me out. I have now invested in a “wedge” pillow and a strange other pillow that goes inbetween my knees. They are helping me sleep comfortably but basically by the time that I go to bed, I am pretty much immobilized by all that extra support. But if I can keep up the circulation to my legs and avoid spider vains, I am willing to try anything. I will keep you all posted on my success.

I didn’t believe that it would happen to me but yes, I have become one of the many statistics of pregnant women who spend more time in the bathroom than in her office chair. While it is true that I am drinking a lot more H2O, I feel like I am also constantly going to the bathroom which, incidentally, is about as far away from my desk as it can possibly be. Not only that, but I feel like I am no longer able to commute to the office via car due to bathroom issues. I am also realizing that I am not able to go on long car trips without mapping designated bathroom stops along the way. This is just embarrassing.

Oh well, we are really busy this weekend with the whole McDonald’s rally. Saturday we are going to a press conference and Monday there is another hearing. I think that I will make quite a statement holding up a demonstration sign while 6 months pregnant. What do you think?
