100 Days to go!

24 and 25 weeks.
Just 100 short days until my due date. I cannot believe I am already almost 26 weeks. 1 weeks 2 days until the 3rd trimester! Lucky me.

Bailey is all of a sudden a very active little girl. Boy 0h boy she does not stop! I cannot believe her little toes are already way up near my ribs. I cannot believe how much higher she is than the boys. It is crazy that just 2-3 weeks ago, I was worried I would never feel her move, just like Collin, but instead she is just as active as Thomas. It just took her longer to make her presence known. Between her sharp jabs and kicks, and the constant hiccups, I really am in heaven. I am loving every single moment of feeling my little girl inside me. At night, when everyone in the house is sleeping, I cannot help by lay there with my hands on my tummy, smile wide across my face, just falling so deeply and madly in love with this being I have yet to meet.

Thomas is getting more and more anxious as the weeks go by. He really wants to meet his baby sister. He asks almost daily if she can "come out now." It breaks my heart to see him lower his eyes to the ground and say "oh."

Tom and I are really having a hard time with this pregnancy. All I ever want to do is sleep. All day, all night. I do not want to be on the computer. I do not want to watch television. I do not want to do to work. I do not even want to play with my boys. Tom has been doing a lot of side work. Then when he comes home, he has to cook, clean, take care of the kids, all because I do nothing. If I am not at work, I am sitting on the couch trying not to fall asleep or in bed sleeping.
Between the fatigue and the morning sickness still kicking my butt..well, lets just say, I am not someone my kids or husband want to spend time with. Fortunately my wonderful husband has been just that. Wonderful. He barely complains at all, which is causing my feelings of guilt to grow even larger and to begin taking over my thoughts. I know things will get better, easier, I just happen to be the worlds most impatient person and I want to be "normal" again now.

  1. I felt the same way with Kairi. After 2 very energetic pregnancies with the boys, Kairi's pregnancy whooped my butt!

    Maybe it's having a girl, maybe the myths are not myths afterall... or maybe it's just being pregnant for a 3rd time. Who knows.

    Just know you aren't the only one!
