I was a bit of a blog slacker this week. It was a busy week at school and the exhaustion is really starting to set in, big time! I have had to take a nap every day when I got home from school. It hasn't even felt like: "oh... I think I'll lay down." It has been like: "If I don't lay down, I am going to die!" I know part of it is getting bigger and further along in my pregnancy and part of it is the anemia, so I am just trying as best as I can to listen to my body when I feel like that. I have also found that when I let myself get over-tired, the nausea is even worse. Like last night- last night was not a good night at all. I was up all night :(
But, onto happy things.... I took this pic on Tuesday, at 29 weeks, but I did not have a chance to post, so here goes- the ever growing belly!
And onto even happier things... today is my shower! :) I still am in awe that I am going to walk into my shower today and people will be there for my little guy! I swear, sometimes I will be at work and I will look down, or I will walk past a mirror and catch a glimpse of my belly, and I still can't believe that this is real. For so many years, I hoped and prayed for the miracle of carrying a child and I just feel so incredibly lucky and blessed. I honestly could sit here and cry when I think about it... woops, and now I am! I have a feeling that there will be a few break- downs today! I will say, the one thing that will be missing today is my mom. She would be just SO thrilled to be celebrating our little guy. I miss her everyday, but as I get closer to having the baby, and on special days like today, the sadness is just so close to the surface. I know she is here- but I would give anything for her to be there to give me a hug and say congratulations.
So, it is bound to be an emotional day... but an absolutely beautiful one as well. I am a lucky, lucky girl.
