I had no intention of skipping week 26, but with the hubby being gone, family coming into town, and a million personal affairs we had to deal with, I had a “Screw it!” moment. My hormones were not forgiving when my husband had to leave town on business. I cried for an entire 24 hour period when he stepped foot on that plane and every conversation we had after that point. I felt so bad that I couldn’t keep my emotions in check but thankfully, he was very understanding that I was just being crazy and pregnant. On the plus side, I did manage to keep myself busy with nesting and he came home to an extremely clean house … it kind of helped make up for all the boo-hooing I did that week. Only 24 hours after landing back at home we welcomed family in town from Alabama for a short but fun-filled weekend. Week 26 was full of go-go-go and boo-hoo-hoo so please forgive my missing update.
While week 27 isn’t much less go-go-go, it is nice to have my main squeeze back on the home front to tackle the stressors of life together. We’ve had a lot going on trying to prepare for Little Miss and we’ll be able to share all the details next week! In the meantime, we are excited to check up on Baby Girl’s growth tomorrow but this Momma is not so excited for the Glucose Test that follows. I’m hoping it won’t be too terrible given my sweet tooth track record this pregnancy. So far, this is my favorite point in this pregnancy. I’m noticing her getting bigger and movement in different places. I’m able to determine her favorite hang out spots in my belly and she loves hearing Daddy’s voice and gets so excited when he chats with her. I can’t wait to see that bond between them develop even more outside of the womb. It’s so surreal that we are heading into the final stretch of things and that next week marks the start of the 3rd trimester! Where did time go?!
I’ve been working like crazy on the mobile for the nursery. Next post I should have a finished product to show you. My OCD levels went through the roof trying to make sure each crystal had the perfect placement. As if that didn’t make me crazy enough, trying to to sew the ruffle for the top of the mobile almost put me into an insane asylum. I needed earmuffs for Mykenzi because a few choice words may or may not have slipped out of my mouth. #whoops #badmommy
