This week was actually pretty awesome. And by awesome
I mean it just didn’t suck so I’m really excited about it. It’s early to tell but Mason has had the best week since we started school and both days his teacher said he did well, so I’m ecstatic.
My main complaint was that it was 5000 degrees and blistered the skin to walk outside. Today was the first day in a week, at least, that I could breathe normally outside. It was around 86 and breezy and I almost grabbed my sweater I was so confused.
Josh found out that his next class was cancelled which would cause a lot of drama for us, including trying to cram a class in with a 3 week old hanging out, but he also found out his administrator graciously decided to waive the class for the students in Josh’s program since it was seriously ruining everyone’s lives. So instead of a lot of upheaval, Josh gets an unexpected 6 week break before his very last class. It seriously could not have come at a better time. When Josh first told me about the class drama, I literally screamed I CAN’T EVEN. It’s probably one of the first times in my life I sensed I shouldn’t worry about something and I actually didn’t. Which I think is strictly due to the fact that I was so stressed out about Mase and work and everything else I’m failing at in life that my brain literally couldn’t worry about anything else. It was amazing! And a few days later Josh told me it had been resolved and in the best way possible and I really just wish I could NOT worry about things more often. That’s my new goal. 🙂
We had some spin victories this week, but strength training fails. I’ve been having some weird tightness/crampy feelings after working out and besides just the general exhaustion it stresses me out so I’m trying to take it easy. And then I stupidly volunteered to bake for Mason’s school PTA event and I’ve got pans of lemon bars and chocolate chip cookies just hanging around my kitchen. Oh and I signed up for the gluten free cookies and totally wimped out and went for the pre made mix, but it was one I’ve never used before, and the cookies are literally crumbling like dust. I’m letting them cool and praying over them but I have a feeling I’ll be arranging lovely gluten free JoJos on a nice plate at 3pm tomorrow afternoon. 😂
The baby is fine, I think I felt her move Monday or Tuesday night which is terrifying because what the heck is she doing the rest of the time?! Speaking of not worrying, I’m pretty sure I will have anxiety about this child no matter what I try to do.
We’re packing up on Sunday for a super quick trip and our one and only vacation this crazy year, and I am just so happy and excited. This trip is quick and close and I’m just so grateful for the opportunity to spend some time together just the three of us. Life has been so nuts lately and it will only get more crazy once our little lady comes along and I am just so happy we get a few days to rest and reconnect and see a whole bunch of Masons great loves, sharks.
How big is baby? A zucchini . Or 6 inches long and approximately 8 ounces.
Pregnancy symptoms? Tired and chubby.
Cravings? We’re back to ice things. Ice chips, slurpees, ice water, Popsicles etc
Aversions? Egg. Let’s not speak of the hard boiled egg incident that happened at the pool this week Jackson.
Best moment this week? Good sweet moments playing trains with my little boy. He started calling me “mama” which I have no idea where it comes from but hearing his little voice say “do you want to play trains with me mama? For just a little teeny tiny while ok?” Is just the best thing ever.
What are you looking forward to next week? VACATION !! And my 20 week ultrasound.
What emotions have you been experiencing this week? Mostly I was just hot.
Are you wearing maternity clothes? No, I got so frustrated there’s like nothing for when you’re just chubby but not hugely pregnant yet. It’s too hot for maxi skirts so I’ve just been wearing my cut offs unbuttoned and hoping I’m not offending people.
Any stretch marks? Not yet.
How much weight have you gained? I seriously can’t even consider it. Probably so much.
Belly button in or out? In
Felt anything? Monday night for sure some kicks! More like ballet twists it’s the strangest feeling ever, all I remember are the ninja kicks to the kidney I got at the end so this part is totally freaking me out.
Know gender? Totally a girl.
Names? Still Scarlett and/or Garlic. Although I called her Garlic to mason and he corrected me to “Her name is Sarleck mama, Sarleck”. I like Garlic better.
What baby project are you working on? Nothing really. Once it cools off I’m determined to get her nursery put together. Basically Halloween until she gets here is booked for us so I need to at least have the basics done before then or I’ll go crazy.
Any guesses on when you’ll go into labor? Nope! But I’m considering an L&D photographer so that’s fun. 🙂
