Note on Marking Time, Passing Time, and Getting Ahead of Myself

These “notes” are ideas for essays/longer posts. If you see one that you think would make a good essay/post or that you just want to see what I would do with it, please let me know in the comments or in an e-mail! I would love to take on a challenge like that and give you more of what you want.


When this week started I knew it was going to be a busy one: a birthday, playdates, shopping, writing, party planning, etc. And I was pretty excited that I would be so busy that the week would fly by and I’d be 26 weeks pregnant (almost to the 3rd trimester!) before I knew it.

That’s not how it turned out. By Wednesday I felt like in two days I’d lived two weeks and my belly had grown two months. And I’m still hardly any closer to birthing this baby.

Does being pregnant mess with anyone else’s sense of time? I find that I’m constantly checking to see if I can say I’m another week farther along, which does me no good. The joy is in the journey, Lizzie. The joy is in the journey.

  1. I’m so with you there! I find my weeks go slow in the moment, but then other things go quick. Like when did we get to the 21st of April? Wasn’t General Conference a few days ago? Try three weeks. But since I count weeks while I’m pregnant, I think that’s why it seems so slow.

    So true. It does seem like just yesterday I was glued to the couch with morning sickness, and yet here I am, 26 weeks! Finally! I wish I could forget how many weeks I am and how many weeks I have to go, but it seems like first thing in the morning I need to orient myself around that crucial fact before I even get out of bed. Just in case I might go into labor that day or something? I don’t know.

    Ha ha, so true! I try to forget about how far along I am until it’s the magical day of the week that I’m one more week along. It kind of works… 🙂

    Teach me how. I start asking myself if I can say I’m 27 1/2 weeks (or whatever) by Thursday. My “week” day is Tuesday. I’m pathetic.
