|28 weeks and 1 day today!|
How I'm Feeling Physically:
Exhausted. There can be multiple reasons for this other than just growing Liam. Calvin doesn't have a set work schedule. Being a General Manager for nine different concepts in the airport, calls for him to be at work at different times of the day depending on whats going on. Sometimes he has to go in at 4 A.M. and sometimes he has to go in at 9:30 PM.With that said, he also is a DEEP sleeper. When I say deep, I mean I could splash cold water on his face and he wont budge. So when his alarm goes off, guess who wakes up to basically wake him up? ME! Also to make matters worse, deep sleeping comes with INTENSE snoring. This is my nightly formula: Tired Mommy + Snoring Daddy + Active Liam + leg cramps + trying to find a comfy position + 3 fur babies on the bed + Daddy's alarm going off non stop in the morning = a very sick and tired preggo. I'm basically the last to sleep and the first to rise. So for everyone's advice on trying to get as much sleep as possible, I'm trying but its extremely difficult. Even with the naps, I can't nap too long because then I really can't sleep at night and I need to start cooking around 5:00 to be able to eat at a decent hour for Liam.
I've also been experiencing more headaches. I have read that headaches can be a bad sign in the third trimester and could be a sign of preeclampsia if paired with the symptoms like high blood pressure, swelling, and protein in the urine. My blood pressure has been fine, no swelling, and the headaches I'm been experiencing feel more like sinus headaches. I feel a lot of pressure, especially when bending down. This past week I've had it twice and it was not pleasant at all.
I'm also a lot hungrier more frequently which worries the heck out of me because I've been trying to watch my weight gain. I am trying to make a more conscious effort with the foods I eat. I try not to go out to restaurants if we don't need too. I've been cooking a lot more and definitely staying away from fast food. Of course every once in awhile I may have a fish filet and fries from Mc Donalds, but I'm happy to say I've stayed away from In N Out and their delicious animal style fries for a few months already!
How I'm feeling Emotionally:
I am a big mess of emotions! They weren't kidding when they say that your hormones go haywire
For the most part, I have been in a great mood and I love being pregnant. This is such a joyous time in my life and its a time I have dreamed about since I was a child. There are so many things I can't wait to teach and show Liam. I am excited and anxiously awaiting his arrival! I love feeling him kick, move and hiccup in my belly. Usually when I'm feeling down, I just need to feel him move and it makes my life so much better. There are a million and one different things going on in my life right now that are probably contributing to feeling down, but that's a different story. When it comes down to it, nothing else matters except my love, Liam.
Calvin and I were able to pick up some stuff this past week!
We purchased some bedding and decor for Liam's Monster's Inc themed nursery and his first cloth diaper! Yes, we have chosen to cloth diaper our love. I'm actually working on a post right now on our decision so keep checking if you're interested!

Oh! We also celebrated Calvin's birthday this past week! Yay! Happy Birthday Daddy-to-be!
