Another week down! I feel like at this point the pregnancy is going to be over before I know it. It probably doesn’t help that I have fifty million things running through my head that I feel like I need to be doing to be prepared … the fear of running out of time is setting in. It must be the hormones. I’m assuming Baby hit another growth spurt because my hormones were out of control this week! I was up, I was down, I was ALL. OVER. THE. PLACE.
I spent this week doing what I do best … Researching! Sounds super fun, right?! I Googled my little heart out about infant car seats, crib mattresses, strollers … you name it, I probably Googled it. I just want to make sure that my baby is safe while at the same time not spending an arm and a leg. I’m trying to be very realistic … I know its easy to get caught up in the “it’s my first baby” world and go all out on buying top of the line everything! Of course, things are top of the line for a reason … but for the sake of my wallet and this family’s future finances, I need to be smart about all of our baby purchases. Not only does a ton of research help, but having friends with kids has been a saving grace! They know all the good stuff! I’m incredibly thankful that I have friends who will let me pick their brain with a ton of baby questions. They help keep me in check and from not becoming that manic first time Mom. It’s a public service really … they should probably get paid for that.
On the health front, everything is still going well. I feel so much better and I’m slowly increasing my water intake day by day. I have a goal set that I’m very close to reaching! If I can make that a habit … I should have no issues with water in the future. It’s amazing how different my body feels with the amount of water I’ve been drinking. Obviously, not pregnant water is super healthy … but being pregnant has really changed my views on water and I plan to continue this water intake after baby.
Okay … on to the good stuff!
