28 weeks

28 WeeksFriends, I am now in my third trimester!

This pregnancy has certainly has been a roller coaster. Never again will I want to repeat weeks 4-18. Throwing up everyday is not my thing, nor is neglecting work and staying in bed. What made it worse is that I still had dogs to walk and a house to run, given that my husband is only home for about 2 waking hours a day. I was sick and on my own. Good riddance to those days!

28Weeks-2Once I was into my second trimester, I began to feel like myself again. Most importantly, I could return to my store and the gym. I finally returned to a productive routine. Waking up, walking the dogs, working, going into town to mail and deliver items, going to the gym, coming back home, walking the dogs, working, cleaning the house, napping, walking the dogs, making supper, working, falling into bed, and finally, seeing my husband around 10 pm. This schedule has continued until now, and I hope that I can maintain it until my due date. 

PoppySure I had HG, placenta previa, have gained weight, a shoe size, and stretch marks, but now, I am feeling so great. Above all, baby appears to be healthy and even measuring 3 days bigger than its due date! (Here he/she is at the 27 week scan.) People in general are so supportive, and rather than worrying about if and when we should have children, I now have one less decision to make. Now that I am definitely attending school this coming fall, I believe that 2016 will be so bright. If this was my only gift this holiday season, I would be more than happy with that.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
