Oh, heeey guys! It’s kind of hard to keep your blog updated when you don’t have cable/internet hooked up yet! I had it all planned out … we had the cable company coming out early this past week to get everything all hooked up. Well, we learned that when they repainted our house before it went on the market they disconnected all the cable wiring to the house so they now have to do a full install instead of the simple “turn on” installation we requested … and of course they couldn’t schedule that until the following week. Got to love utility companies … no sense of urgency or willingness to help.
Home ownership has taught us an awful lot about Murphy’s Law. If it has the possibility of going wrong, chances are it probably will. My patience has never been tested so much as it has in the past week. Normally not armed with a lick of patience, I have been doing surprisingly well. Letting go of control for me is tough, but things are out of my hands at this point so I’m taking it day by day. Also, a four letter “F” word followed by the word “it” has been my go-to form of therapy.
Despite all the difficulties we have still managed to embrace the process and keep laughing. Let’s not forget that there’s always good with the bad. Sure, we’ve had a few hiccups but those things will never take away the pride we feel in owning our own home. I’ve been enjoying the little things like playing my music as loud as I want, not being worried about TV volume, and just not having to worry about my walls being connected to neighbors. Living in close quarters with connected neighbors for years makes you very aware of how loud you are, so not worrying about those things anymore kind of makes us feel like rebels. #takingawalkonthewildside
I’m dying to get in the nursery, but making sure the house is functional for our day to day routine has taken priority this week. Mykenzi’s crib came in and the box taunts me every time I walk by her room. I can hardly stand the wait to get it out of the box and all set up … I’m hoping by next week I’ll be able to get in there and nest. #fingerscrossed
How far along? 33 weeks, 6 days
Total weight gain? 25.8lbs … I’m definitely feeling that extra 25lbs these days.
Maternity clothes? Still sticking to the hubby’s tees and leggings right now.
Stretch marks? I don’t know how but I’ve still managed to escape the wrath of stretch marks at the moment.
Sleep? is terribleeeee. Mykenzi’s sweet little kicks have turned into a full on butt kicking. I kept twitching in bed the other night and my husband asked what I was doing … I replied, “THAT is your child!” This little girl is strong! Not to mention, having two fur babies who are completely stressed by the move hasn’t helped the sleeping situation either.
PEAK of the week? I entered a giveaway by Freshly Picked and Sassy Baby Essentials via Instagram and won! I was super shocked and incredibly excited! Baby girl got a fresh new pair of Moccasins and some of the cutest headbands added to her wardrobe this week!
PIT of the week? Feeling unsettled! I feel like my entire house is in disarray and my anxiety levels are super high!
Miss anything? SLEEP! I would give anything for a quality night’s sleep! I know, I know … get used to no sleep.
Movement? Uh, Duh. My ribs have become a jungle gym.
Food cravings? I’m having random cravings. They don’t stick around long but I’ll wake up and decide I want something and absolutely HAVE to have it. It has been anything from a frosted donut to Olive Garden’s salad. I also got a Blueberry Waffle fix this week.
Anything making you feel sick or queasy? Doing okay this week.
Gender? All things Pink!
Symptoms? Carpal Tunnel … it is driving me insane! One of the worst symptoms I’ve had this entire pregnancy.
Belly button in or out? Flat as a board.
Happy or moody? I’ve been a little Grumpy Gus this week. Oops.
Milestones? Baby girl has her own room and a crib! Now we just have to get it set up!
Looking forward to? Getting settled in … and getting in that nursery!
