7-more weeks until my due date!!
Not going to lie, I'm starting to get uncomfortable.
At times I find it hard to breathe, but it's not ALL the time, just when baby Shelby is positioned a certain way.
My belly is getting bigger by the day and I'm getting a little tired of the comments where people look at my belly and say:
"Gosh!!! How much longer!!??"
--I then tell them 7-more weeks and they say, "I would have thought next week!"
"WOW!! That's going to be a BIG baby!!"
--Thanks people. I'm short(5'4") so there is nowhere for this baby to go but straight out.
It is what it is...it just gets old at times.
I can understand though. My Mom got here last night to help out with the nursery and for my last shower this weekend, and she took a picture of me.
Even I was astonished at just how big my belly is.
And, yes.. I know...it's not done growing yet.
It's only a sign of things to come.
Back to my Mom being here.
For some reason I have been lacking motivation to go through all of the shower gifts we've received and get things organized for the closet.
Just overwhelmed by it all.
I'm generally not like that but for some reason I have been.
So, I waited until she got here to be able to help and I'm so glad I did.
We started last night and only got 1/2 done.
She's helping us out by washing stuff today and and tomorrow during the day.
Tonight the work continues.
While up there working last night,(Brad was up there hanging items on the wall and putting things together), Buddy(our beagle) was off on his own.
Urinating all over our stairs and hardwoods downstairs!!!
Yes, the first act of jealously and retaliation!!
I'm still so disappointed and annoyed.
I know it's only a sign of things to come.
I expect him to get 'stress colitis' before it's all over and done with.
It too, is what it is..
Other updates as I enter my 34-week?
WAIT FOR IT
* I'm done with exercising. I decided about a week ago that it's just too much. I found that the energy I was using at the gym was causing me to have none for things that needed to be done at home.
Such as: making a salad, dusting, cleaning a bathroom, doing laundry.
I feel that just doing that sort of stuff can count at some exercise. Right?
Don't get me wrong. I'm still taking short walks during the day and after work. Nothing like I was though. I sort of feel like a failure but as Brad would say, the most important thing is, to make sure I'm not overdoing it so Shelby can stay in the oven until she's done.
* As of last week I've gained a total of 21-pounds.
* I'm wanting to eat Fig Newtons all of the time.
That's all I have for today!
Have a great rest of the week!
