Twenty-four-ish weeks down! This pregnancy is somehow flying and dragging by all at once. I remember at the beginning of this pregnancy thinking that when my sons were done with school I’d feel so close to my due date.. Well here I am, the last day of school with four months left and I’m wondering why on earth I thought being five months pregnant would feel so close to being nine months pregnant?
I’m very happy to report that I have some energy back! It comes in waves and when its here, I try to take full advantage of it by doing something fun with the kids, catching up on housework or working in the garden. But I still have plenty of days where all of my body wants is rest and I’m trying to respect that and not beat myself up too much about all the lazy days I’m taking. I can’t wait until we open our pool up so I can relax in the pool but at the same time be the fun mom because I’m letting the kids swim. That’ll be pretty dreamy, not gonna lie.
I’m still sick. But it gets more bearable as time moves on and I’m figuring out more and more how to cope with it all. Some days are pretty miserable and some days are super tolerable. You never know what kind of day you’ll get, but the bad days definitely make me much more grateful for the good days!
This little boy is a wiggler. He is sitting pretty low in my belly right now and I’m starting to get those bladder jabs that send you into a slight panic because you’re not sure if you’re going to wet your pants or not (TMI?). He especially loves to dance around in the evening and when I’m starting to fall asleep at night. The kicks and wiggles are such fun reminders of what’s happening inside of me. Goodness I am grateful for this journey.
