Stay safe. Have fun. And celebrate with the ones you love! Looking back at this picture from last year, it’s hard to believe how much older Moosh is! And that it’s been a WHOLE YEAR since my sister-in-law visited us from Denver! Though we won’t all be together this year, we’ll still be going to a parade and celebrating with family (my sister this time!).
Have a great weekend, friends!
- My pants started to get tight prior to even finding out I was pregnant. Which totally made sense once I found out I was pregnant. However, that happens FAST with a second pregnancy! Dang! People weren’t kidding!
- Morning sickness that lasts all day and taking care of a crazy ass toddler is hell on Earth. I know it shouldn’t last forever, but when you’re in the thick of it, it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
- I’m trying to figure out HOW my boobs are going to get even bigger as pregnancy progresses and then after delivery. HOW is that even possible!?
- Speaking of boobs, I have to wear two sports bras — TWO!! — when I run.
- And speaking of running, I actually have continued to run. With Ari, I could barely walk without peeing myself. But this time around I’m staying active. In fact, walking/running intervals has been the one thing that reduces my nausea. Walking is definitely the easier of the two. Sometimes running makes my stomach churn. Yuck! However, I have run TWO races since finding out I was pregnant — a 5k and an 8k.
- I can’t put words together into sentences. Mom brain has kicked in mega hard and mega fast. I couldn’t remember the word WHEELCHAIR. Instead? Instead I called it “a big person stroller thing.” Yep. That happened. With someone who didn’t know I was pregnant. And I didn’t even know them well. Suuuuper.
More updates to come. Oh and blog posts that aren’t about pregnancy… Once I can get my pregnancy brain wrapped around the English language again. Ha.
I’m not going to lie — it’s been hard to see past a lot of what’s going on, which has mostly been full of sickness. I haven’t been able to function, let alone get out of bed and go to work. It’s been downright hellish, actually. But yesterday I felt human for the first time in months! And I cleaned the house for the first time in weeks. WEEKS
! No joke! It felt good to be awake and productive.
So I’m making this my mantra for the week. I’ve been pushing to keep a positive outlook by keeping negative people out. And I’ll continue to do so by ‘singing a song to the world people can dance to.’ Thanks, Kid President. Wise beyond your years!
