I am 29 weeks 5 days pregnant!
Yes, I know its Friday and everybody gets tired of the long week and can’t wait for the weekend to start! But honestly since been pregnant I have struggled to get back on the horse when blogging – more accurately since the car crash happened and it started sinking in all the privileges that were stolen from us!
So, most days I spend tryna find myself and figure out what is needed to be done during the day! Dishes, washing, washing the dogs, helping build the house where I can – although I am pretty much useless in that department its fun watching Tom (baby daddy) get excited and bounce ideas off of me. Since it has always been his dream to build his own house!
“And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
2 Corinthians 4:8
So, why do I feel so tired all the time? I worked harder in Pretoria and felt less tired. Well I guess carrying around extra weight all day long doesn’t help, constantly focusing on not toppling over all the time like a drunk takes a lot of focused energy since my mind still hasn’t adjusted its center of gravity and literally getting annoyed with any sound my mind deems unnatural, such as if the dogs chew or itch or just generally breath to loudly can drive me insane these days!
The dogs breathing, chewing and scratching at night keeps me awake besides getting up at 11, 2 and 7 in the morning (if I am lucky those are the only times I wake up. It sometimes is more). Surprisingly, it’s not the baby’s movements which keep me up at night, more like I need to pee 10 times in a row and am an unlucky sleeper that takes sometimes hours to get back to sleep – literally between 2 and 4 hours mostly!
My week was ok. Tom can’t believe that it’s Friday, he woke up this morning thinking it was Wednesday! Me on the other hand am just so grateful it is Friday! I told him this morning he gave all the extra time to me. I guess the slow week is due to the anticipation of next week’s Antenatal care (ANC) Checkup. I can’t wait. Although, I really wish these appointments would come with scans. But I guess as long as the health care workers don’t think there’s anything wrong we should be good. This coming week we will be 10 weeks and counting till babykins arrives!
