James and I are happy to report that we are expecting our third child this winter!
My energy is slowly creeping back in. There was actually a day this week where I decided to wake up and embrace an early morning before my kids did, instead of dragging my feet into the kitchen to fetch bananas and water while holding one on each hip.
Note to significant others of a pregnant woman:
- Don’t take it personally
- Learn to read minds
- The occasional nap is a not an indulgence, it’s a necessity (we are doubling our blood and building a human!)
- These Pregnancy Nausea Tips are a G-d send
Nesting mode is starting to kick in. I’ve been getting rid of clutter, reconfiguring rooms, reorganizing EVERYTHING etc… my mind doesn’t stop. I’m looking into meditation for that.
All of the craziness, exhaustion and moodiness aside, James and I are beyond elated and feeling so incredibly blessed. Olivia and Joshua are in on the news and seem to be excited about a baby coming into the family. And James, thank you for being the loving, caring and understanding husband and father that you are.
Happy Labor Day weekend to all of you! And thank you for letting me share a bit of my journey.
