When it comes to interior design, I would say I struggle a bit. I know what I love in a finished space and can visualize what I want, but when it comes to actually bringing that vision to life, i have no clue where to even start! Knowing what to buy, which pieces will look good together, and where to put what requires a special set of skills.
36 weeks… it’s hard for me to believe! The beginning of this pregnancy went SO slow since I spent the majority of it hunched over a toilet. Now I’m starting to have weekly OB appointments and everything is feeling real. The nursery is complete (nursery reveal coming soon!), all baby clothes are washed and hung, freezer meals have been made, the house is clean, and now it’s just a waiting game! With my first (Jonas), I never felt nearly as uncomfortable as I feel right now. The lower pelvic pain and back pain has me waddling like a duck. It feels like every day I’m getting just a bit more uncomfortable. These days you can find me wearing my husband’s t-shirts, eating ice cream, peeing a lot in the night, and crying about pretty much everything. I know, I sound like such a joy, right?! Home stretch, my friends. I’m on the home stretch (or so I keep telling myself).
I can hardly believe that I’m in the third trimester already! At the same time though, it feels like I’ve been pregnant for years. It’s amazing how different the second pregnancy is from the first. With Jonas, I was so on top of getting the nursery ready, getting all of his clothes organized, and nesting in general. With this pregnancy, I’m literally just starting to work on the nursery… oops. I planned to start after I hit 20 weeks but chasing around a toddler all day has me absolutely exhausted. The second I hit the third trimester, it felt like all the energy drained from my body. I think it’s a combination of being a toddler mom and the summer heat/busyness of summer. I also feel like I have more aches and pains than I did with my first pregnancy but such is life as a preggo and I don’t intend to use this blog post to complain (I will say though that I’m not the girl that loves being pregnant haha). I want to share about some pregnancy related things that have been going on the past couple of weeks since well… I use this blog to share about what’s going on in my life. So here goes…
I can’t believe that we’re finally halfway there! Woohoo! The first trimester felt like it was never ending and now things are starting to speed along. It’s crazy to think that in a few months, we’ll be meeting our second baby boy! Lately I’ve been feeling like I’m on an emotional roller coaster. I’m an emotional soul to begin with so add pregnancy hormones to the mix and… cue the water works and all the feels.
