Late again… this is from last week:
This week was full of highs and lows. It was a very emotional week for me as I struggled with a personal issue that has totally taken a toll on me. It was also such a blessing as I finally reached the halfway point in this pregnancy – woohoo!
I’m currently trying to stay busy doing lots of projects for new baby’s room. I hung some frames on the wall and made this little crate project for her toys. I’ll finish that project up this week. I also made a tent that I hoped would go in new baby’s room but it’s a little too big so it’s going to go in Palmer’s room instead. I hope to do a little teaser of new baby’s room in the next couple weeks if I can finish up some of these projects.
I’ve been feeling lots of Braxton Hicks lately. We started walking at night, the first real fitness activity I’ve done in a long while. Since my Fitbit number was so embarrassing last week due to the sickness, I tried to make up for it this week by hitting my goal every day. I was very happy to say that I’ve hit my goal every day since last Monday so that was a huge achievement. It’s also nice because it gives Erin and I a little bit of time to just talk, away from the draw of TV and phone screens. Just chatting time.
I must be getting pretty big because I got my first “oh please don’t pick that up” moment at Home Depot. The lady at the checkout was very concerned as I gathered up my wood and other project tools. At first I thought maybe she was just being nice because I was clearly not handling balancing all the items but then she asked me when I was due so it was definitely because I am pregnant.
