FRIDAY! OH thank heavens. This week has been so overwhelming, and I’m ready for a weekend dedicated to all things baby and organizing! My parents are coming into town tonight, and we’re hoping to knock off a few more last minute registry items and get Adeline’s room *mostly* set up. It might just turn into unpacking shower gifts and organizing her closet more than anything, but we’ll see how much progress I can make! I am itching to get her room done, just to say it’s ready!
So here we are at yet another week that’s flown by. We’ll be 33 weeks this weekend, and I am definitely feeling it. I can’t even fathom how much MORE I’ll be feeling it over the next ~7 weeks. Yikes. And I don’t mean to complain, but wowzers have I gained sympathy for every single pregnant woman ever in the history of time!
Week 32 has been a doozy, like I previously mentioned. We got back in town on Sunday, and noticed our AC was out. So Sunday night and Monday night I slept over at a friend’s house. Luckily we were able to get a window unit installed, and that helped tremendously. Those bad boys are no joke! That sucker cooled our house like a boss, and Wednesday morning when we woke up our house was a chilly 68 degrees!
At work though, we’ve been swamped, and I’m trying my best to make sure all of our current sites can go live before my maternity leave, and no projects are left hanging. But, some of that’s outside of my control. Then Wednesday night, I thought I was going to have a major hormonal breakdown when I realized just how exhausted I was, both physically and mentally. Thankfully, a long walk and a good talk with Adam helped. I was able to walk for 30 minutes, albeit slower than molasses, and not exactly comfortable, I still got some much needed exercise in.
I told Adam that it feels like Adeline is getting bigger every.single.day. Each day I wake up and just FEEL bigger, and this is just the beginning! I’m sure I’ll laugh at myself in a few weeks when I’m even more huge. How is it even possible for my stomach to get any bigger, I just don’t even know. It’s a miracle.
Speaking of miracles, feeling her roll around and SEEING it is a miracle in and of itself! It’s just crazy. Absolutely crazy to me that there is a fully functioning human being INSIDE of me, and in a few weeks she will be OUTSIDE of me. Like, one day in, one day out. WHAT. Every time I feel her move around and see my belly jiggle like a bowl of jello, it cracks me up. It’s just so fun.
My sweet tooth has definitely come back this trimester, and I’m currently craving all the sweets I can get my hands on. Even though I still can only handle a small amount of ‘sweet’ at a time, I’m still finding myself making random trips to Sonic for a mini Reese’s blast.
All in all, I’m feeling pretty good, even though I’m feeling far from blissful and radiant. Ha!
Here are a few more happenings from the week. I think that about wraps it up! On to another week!
