That is my new mantra, including blogging. As many of you know, we were in Maryland for a whole 56 hours the first weekend in June. It took awhile for me to recover from that trip—mostly because of the lack of sleep. Then, just when I thought I was starting to get back my get-up-and-go, I’ve reverted back to first trimester blahs, except now along with my fatigue and nausea, I’ve got this little girl inside kicking and keeping me up at night. And I think the term “pain in the butt” must have come from a pregnant woman with sciatica pain.
I am a little frustrated with my body’s limitations right now. I’ve had no “nesting” urges whatsoever, and I’m having a hard time with day-to-day stuff. Laundry. Groceries. Keeping the house at a level of clean that doesn’t gross us out (and we’re really flexible with that level!). I’m trying to do things in 15 minute increments. Even if the task doesn’t get finished, I’m at least making progress. I am also thankful that T is such a great partner in all of this. He helps take up my slack, cheers me on when I need it, and is incredibly flexible with my food issues.
Please don’t worry about me. Overall, my pregnancy is going well. I’m healthy, the baby is healthy, and she’s growing like a weed! Just know that if I’m a little late with birthday wishes, thank you notes and personal emails that I am still here and thinking about you. And I’m working on pics from our weekend in Maryland. I’ve given up on that blog entry. It’s been sitting in my draft folder for too long. I’ll post tidbits along with the pictures.
