I had not realized it has been so long since I wrote on here! Tomorrow I will be 23 weeks. baby has grown from the size of a banana to a endive, to a coconut and now a grapefruit. We are now able to see the kicks and punches on the out side of my belly and that makes me excited. Seems baby is healthy and happy in there.
2 weeks ago this Saturday(in 2 days), I fell down our back stairs. We got a new puppy on Valentines day and she ddn’t like trying to go down stairs alone. So I got up at 6:30 to let her out. As I was walking down the stairs I did not realize the rain on them had actually iced over. I slipped and luckily just fell down 2 or 3 stairs but beat my back up pretty good. I went to the hospital and baby was luckily fine! I on the other hands am still dealing with some pain. I bruised my back and hip bone, pinched a nerve and hurt the muscle all on the left side of my back. It was very rough. I couldn’t walk very well for a few days, had to have help sitting and standing. I am just now able to pick up my kids but still get pain if I move a certain way. I am on the mend though.
As for the pregnancy, I am still craving my sweets! Ice cream is a big one, I wish I had all the sweets… fudge, cheescake, cookie dough, oreos… there are so many lol. My fiance(bless his heart) has done really well at spoiling me! For Valentines day, he got me a big thing of Russel Stovers chocolates, some chocolate covered cherries, chocolate m&m’s. When I hurt my back he got me 3 different ice creams, my root beer, muffins, and some other sweet snacks I had been wanting. He does not condone my horrible eating habits right now(He is a big fitness guru) but he knows I am pregnant and these things make me happy lol. He is awesome. I still love my root beer and egg sandwiches. I am still drinking my 1-2 cups of coffee. I am trying to up my water intake but man I hate plain water. I have to do my stretches for my back but when I feel better I can’t wait to start trying to make a schedule so I can work out in the mornings. I want to make some posts about learning to make a routine schedule so HOPEFULLY when the baby gets here, I have a routine I am sticking with. That way I am still getting what needs to be done, done and then include the babies schedule. I have my hands full already lol but ready or not, here comes another thing on my schedule. I am excited though. By weeks, I have about 16 left since I will have a planned c-section at 39 weeks.
So, I think it is time I start sorting through some old clothes and finding gender neutrals and making sure I have some outfits for the baby. We don’t have a whole lot left from when we gave some things to a couple who were having a baby that were not prepared for one. Now we have to get some things together. Luckily with baby due in June, there won’t be too many clothing items needed. Onesies, shorts, sandals, head bands for a girl… Simplicity is key for a summer baby. And our theme being white and grey makes things easy.
I suppose I should hop off here and finish my morning cleaning. I would love to get caught up completely and then make a schedule to stick with but lets be honest, that doesn’t happen with 2 toddlers, 3 dogs, a cat and 2 pre teens here after school. I will prevail! I will win this battle lol. Just lots of dedication and hard work has to be put forth. Wish me luck and I will try to not get so behind (:
Until next time.
