What Pregnancy Fatigue Feels Like

You are a concrete statue, poured in the shape of a girl. You have been laid down on a bed of fine, wet sand. Tiny weights have been attached evenly around your dull body.

You feel yourself being slowly, evenly subsumed into the bed of sand. You cannot move your arms and legs. You cannot escape.

You can only lie there, still and heavy, as the sand gradually envelopes you, quietly, grain by grain.
