I’m officially in the third trimester now! It’s a little surreal because this pregnancy has been so easy compared to Matthew’s that I don’t know what hit me! If Charlotte comes at 38 weeks, like Matthew did, I only have 12 weeks until her arrival.
We have so much to do before then (like throw a first birthday party and find a new home) that I am trying to plan for her being here then, and then being pleasantly surprised if she waits. I don’t want to think I have more time and then be caught off guard!
A few weeks ago, I woke up thinking “Why am I so tired?” and then I remembered I’m pregnant. And the tired has not let up. I don’t remember if I was this tired with Matthew or if it just didn’t matter because I had the leisure of being able to rest when ever I wanted to. Matthew definitely does not like resting, and even when he does nap, I can’t seem to fall asleep!
My night-time sleep is still pretty good, I am only getting up about twice to pee although I have had some of those fun leg cramps people talk about! Didn’t get those the first time. I think God was having compassion because waking up with gallstones was enough.
I am, however, forgetting that I am 7 months pregnant and therefore cannot do as much as I think I can. I had a somewhat busy weekend and by Sunday evening I was on the bathroom floor seeing stars and praying I didn’t barf. I need to learn to say no, I need to take responsiblity for my health and my body and I need to remember to drink water even when I’m out and about!
Matthew’s birthday is in less than 2 weeks and I am so excited about his party, and I definitely cannot wait to blog all of my efforts. I had some big ideas in mind, but I decided to scale back a bit (not only for sanity but for budget) and I am thrilled about his casual park birthday party! I have to say a big Thank You to Pinterest for giving me so much inspiration!
I have some posts up my sleeve, besides Matthew’s party, but getting to them is another story. One of the most asked for posts is on the Moby wrap, which I will do but I either need to borrow a mama and a newborn OR wait until I have Charlotte, because I cannot wear a baby on my front right now!! Any volunteers?
Any posts you’d like to see here? Questions about birth/baby/pregnancy? Recipes you need? Need some craft or party inspiration? I’ll see what I can do!
