Yesterday was the first day of Spring, which means, Baby B will be here THIS season! We are now in the single digits for weeks left to go before we meet our little man!! The next 6 weeks may be the busiest 6 weeks of my life (showers, weddings, birthdays, etc) but I'm hoping that will just help the time go by faster to meet him!
I'm still having the chocolate cravings and today I just randomly started craving strawberries. Totally out of the blue! It wasn't overwhelming, but they still sound really good! A trip to the store for some fresh ones may be in order tonight! I have noticed that the hunger has started to go away. I don't need my afternoon snack hardly at all anymore. Yesterday we had a fairly big breakfast and I just had a little snack (fries and a milkshake - lol) for lunch. But, surprisingly, I wasn't STARVING for dinner.
Every week that passes, it seems the more tired I am getting. Yesterday Nick woke up early, usually the time I wake up, and I could barely open my eyes. Finally I was hungry enough that I got up to make breakfast. We ran a couple of errands and my plan was to come home and take a nap. I was so tired and my eyes felt so heavy. It was absolutely gorgeous outside, but I just wanted a little nap. Of course I couldn't fall asleep and finally got up and ran to the grocery store. Well, the tiredness combined with the heat (it wasn't really hot as much as beautiful, but for me it felt overwhelmingly warm), didn't help matters. We were having Drew/Erin over for dinner and the KU game later and I felt like there were a million things to do.
By the time I got home, I just couldn't even take it anymore. I put the groceries away and went to lay down. That's when the Jessie Spano 'Hot Sundae' meltdown began. As I laid down, I just started sobbing. I was grumpy and tired and hot, but it was so gorgeous outside and Nick was trying to take care of everything for dinner. I felt so guilty that I couldn't be enjoying the weather with him, and getting all the things done that I wanted. I'm very much the work then play personality type, but in this case, I couldn't work because I was so exhausted! Nick was wonderful and just told me to get some rest, which I finally was able to get a bit of a nap in and felt much better when I woke up!
I am so used to being go go go, even pregnant. I've been able so far to pretty much still handle everything around the house. Cooking, cleaning, laundry, getting the baby's room together, etc. I feel like I'm reaching a point where I just can't do it all anymore. I'm terrible at asking for help because that means admitting I can't do it myself. Luckily I have a wonderful husband who just wants to make things easier for me in whatever way he can. I feel blessed to have him and blessed that we've gotten this far with me still being able to keep up my normal routine. I think staying active is part of what has helped me to this point.
I finally broke down and ordered some 'warmer weather' maternity clothes that will hopefully be here this week. As mild and really goregous as it's been, it's been a little too warm for me and long sleeved shirts. Let's hope they fit and are cute enough for work so I can get some relief!!
