Today I was lamenting over the fact that I haven’t been keeping up with any of my hobbies. My Blog has been anything but interesting, I haven’t painted in weeks, and I can’t even remember what other sorts of things I like to do. Further, I felt depressed about the amount of time I have spent laying on the couch, floor, or bed, just waiting and aching for the sickness to go away. How I have been dragging myself from one task to another and trying to be a good mom. Well, I am here to tell you (and myself) that I have a pretty darn good excuse. Baby number 3 is on its way!! This baby has sure thrown a curve ball in my normal functionality. I pretty much loathe the first trimester of pregnancy. I even started writing a whole post on “How to get through the first trimester of pregnancy”, but didn’t have the heart to post it because I couldn’t REALLY see how I was going to get through it. (Maybe I’ll post it later)
On top of pregnancy, we purchased and moved into our new home a few weeks ago. I can tell you from experience that the first trimester is the absolute worst time to move. I have moved every time I have been pregnant, and being nauseous and exhausted made this go around the hardest yet.
Luckily I have some great family and friends who stepped in with words of comfort, meals, and helping with the move. (THANK YOU!!) The service I have received has really made all the difference. I can do hard things (I think?), but it’s so much easier with wonderful people who are willing to help.
Jordan helped me snap a few photos of my bump last week. (And by bump, I mean my bloated + too much snacking +a little bit of baby, bump). With each pregnancy, I pop out sooner, and I am looking forward to getting past this frumpy bloated stage.
We are excited for Christmas this week, and I am very hopeful that by Christmas my nausea will be gone! (One can dream, right?)
Baby will arrive next June. We are all so excited. I can’t wait for tiny baby snuggles.
I hope to be back full swing in a few weeks. I have ideas swirling around my head, but I haven’t the capacity to fulfill them quite yet, so please excuse me from any expectations. Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
Till next time,
