Tired so tired

Monday, July 07, 2014

This was one of those weeks where I could take 3 naps a day if you let me. Thank goodness my work schedule is getting cut down by 1 hour. So I am off at 4 pm starting tomorrow. That will make a big difference. 8-5 on my feet is rather rough at this point already. I keep thinking I look more pregnant and then I look in the mirror and I don't. Kinda frustrating to feel pregnant and not look pregnant at 21 weeks. I had a friend who was like 8-9 months pregnant and she still didn't look pregnant hardly. She was a little skinny thing too. I am starting to really believe those shows of women who never knew they were pregnant at all. He's in there I have proof and we have been calling him by his name and reading to him. Plus he makes me want hamburgers when I am usually the person who gets the fish sandwich at hamburger places.

We started our hunt for baby stuff. So far we settled on a jogging stroller/car seat combo and a crib and nursery color. Took three tries to get the perfect pastelly lime green for his room. It's so frustrating talking to people about what you did. You will need a breast pump, ehhhh maybe not. You will need a regular stroller and a jogging stroller, that one I nixed. I also talked to my dance teacher who also runs and asked what she has and that helped a lot. You can spend so much on a jogging stroller. I wanna start garage sailing for stuff, hopefully this weekend. Really wanna get the room painted before I start filing it with crap. Come on energy no failing me this week. Maybe if I do some painting, Scott can finish it next weekend. His brother was town this past weekend I didn't wanna make him miss out on his visit.

This was a rough 4th of July so I just kinda ignored it. It was always my favorite holiday to spend with my dad and the last time I saw him last yr before he died. Now we still have to face his death day on 7/19 which is coming up in a few weeks. Rough month.

Exercise last week was better. I made it to 3.25 fitness classes. One of the new dance teachers has been subbing for this teacher I like. You never know either til you get to class. Which is frustrating because her music is awful. Really poppy crap I have never heard of. She is obsessed with One Direction... I woke up last week for the 5 am class and looked in to see who was teaching and went home lol I know i know I woke up, why not go? Cuz I can just as easily go back to sleep...and pretend I was never there. I am better off not being there than making bitch face at the teacher completely not on purpose for 60 minutes. Eating has been so so. With no enegy comes no energy to cut up fruits. Hopefully this week is better for fruit cutting and painting!

    I think tired is a major part of pregnancy - though then it lasts through infancy too!

    (On the other hand, it's 3 AM and I can't sleep!)

    Wanna trade for a bit?

    You've already got a name? Do tell....

    With the first everyone has an opinion and advice. Some is good, some is bad. Trial and error, honestly, is all that works. I had people swear by one thing and I'd try it and hate it. For example my sister told me "never use pampers- they are a waste of money". She swore by huggies. I tried them and hated them. I ended up using pampers. :)

    Sometimes, our bodies simply need the rest. Hopefully, you'll be able to get some downtime so that you can get the rest you need. Blessings upon you today.

    I was tired a lot when I was pregnant too. I'm glad you will be working less.

    We had a woman who worked at our hospital who didn't know she was pregnant and came in and delivered. Things didn't go well.

    Funny........... before I was pregnant I would have ordered the burger and while pregnant would have ordered the fish. LOL.

    I think it would be better for Scott to paint, instead of you and the baby being exposed to those fumes.

    August is a bad month for me as my mom and grandma and aunt all died in August.

    Maybe the good dance teacher will be back this week now that the holidays are over.

    Our baby doctor told us when we were pregnant that she her parents were in college when she was born. They would pull out the bottom drawer of a dresser and that's where she slept as a baby.

    So much stuff is nice, but no needed. You can always have the baby and then decide you need a few things and get them then. Heck, even if you have "everything" you'll find a few things you need once he comes!

    Best of luck with everything:)

    Please I want to see the perfect shade of green! :) :) :)

    No worries about skipping the class, sometimes you just have to go back to bed. I heard that people were hauling their kids to the gym and when they saw who was working in the child care room, they turned around and left. So you are not alone! It's a shame though that people go to the trouble of getting to the gym just to be disappointed.
