Well, Hello 3rd Trimester! You are a sight for sore eyes! By this time with Mykenzi I was just coming into the point of the pregnancy where I was filling out and feeling round. I was loving life with a bump, this time I’ve never been more ready to have a baby. Rowan is literally extended from hip to hip putting all the pressure on my abdomen which isn’t great for my hernia.
Nesting finally kicked in. I’ve been wondering if it was going to come around? With Mykenzi I nested pretty much the whole time, this time I’ve been rather lazy so when I got the burst of energy to go for it, I did! Nesting for me is kind of crazy though. I pick stupid stuff to focus what little energy I do have on. With Mykenzi, I obsessively cleaned all the cabinet knobs in our kitchen and bath then had a full on meltdown the week before she was born about the linen closet and re-organized that. Nesting with Rowan resulted in sorting already color sorted laundry into more tedious piles that was probably pointless, but made me feel better about the loads of laundry I was about to do. Does anyone else have hampers full of clothes from the previous season that stay there until you need to launder them again to wear? I’m so bad at at that! So all my winter stuff is sitting in hampers because I have no need to wash and wear it. I am proud to say that thanks to nesting I am now two loads away from having absolutely no clothes in any hampers. Go, me!
Here’s what’s going on this week.
