Last week, I definitely felt pregnant. It was full of back pain, aches and pains, pressure and stretching, constipation, and a lack of good sleep. I wanted to eat all day long and cry for no reason. Thankfully, I’m back to being mostly comfortable and the baby is moving lots and he’s getting so much stronger.
I’ve been obsessing over organizing and cleaning. There’s a lot I can’t do right now because we still have to find somewhere for Wyatt’s desk before we can clean out our guest room, soon to be kid’s room. But my mind will not shut off, I’m constantly thinking of organizing.. I even dream about it. The other night, I watched true blood before bed and I dreamt of vampires making labels and organizing. It’s getting bad.
I’ve also been stressing a lot about who is going to watch Peyton when we have to go to the hospital. There is almost no one that can watch her and it’s making me so sad. People with family/friends willing and able to watch their children really are lucky but I hear so many complain about it. My family lives at least an hour away, works full time and a lot of them I wouldn’t ask anyway. Wyatt’s family lives 3-5 hours away, I’ve asked but they’re not able to. I can ask my sister if I need to but she has a full time job and 3 kids of her own. I know that this will work itself out but it’s just bringing on new worries and bad feelings that I haven’t had before.
I brought home all the sweet baby clothes that my sister gave us. It still seems so crazy that we’ll be having a little boy but it’s so exciting.
I wrote most of this a few days ago and I must have been having a bad day because I sound a little stressed out. Hopefully all my worries work themselves out. For now, I can’t believe how fast this pregnancy is going by.. I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. It’s so crazy. I know that come the end of October, it’s going to go by at warp speed.. it seems like after Halloween, with all the holidays and preparation for them, the end of the year is here in the blink of an eye. We’ll be a family of 4 before we know it. Only 125 days left.
