Holy moly… is it just me that feels like I have been pregnant for 324,907 years? It is so crazy how fast and slow this pregnancy has gone! The craziest part is saying to people when they ask when I am due is telling them, “next month”. NEXT MONTH?! woah. woah. woah.
We for sure feel ready and not ready… we still have a lot of things we need to put together or get. Her room is coming along just great (I will do a post on it)! We still need to do her dresser and get a glider. Also thank goodness for my handy husband who put up her wallpaper! woohoo! I find myself home from work spending lots of time in there. I love to just go in there and sit and sort through her stuff. I open her closet, unfold and fold her clothes and just sit in there. It is the craziest feeling of knowing this little human inside of me is going to be living in that room.
I am still working, which has been such a blessing in lots of ways and hard in other ways too. It has been a lifesaver to not think of the pregnancy the whole time and be busy with projects, make myself get up workout with Keloni and put some cute/stylish pregnancy clothes (here are some of my fav. from shoppinkblush)! Getting myself ready has for sure helped me feel better during the day. On the other hand I don’t have the luxury of days I feel so tired, sick or achy to stay home. I have a new respect for all those working pregnant women and mammas!
I also feel like whoever said the first trimester is the worst was lying to me… AHAHA. No but really. Third trimester has been a struggggle. When you are in the second you have a cute bump and feel great! When you get to your third its a whole another story. I feel like nothing fits me anymore, I cant bend over to put shoes or socks on, fatigue again, hard to breathe when walking two steps, dropped something… forget about it… it is staying on the floor, start to feel sick again, food aversions, just uncomfortable, big and body aches. I keep telling myself, I have done 8 months.. I can do 1 more. I truly do believe God gives women amnesia to forget about the hard times in pregnancy so we want to do it all over again 😉 ahah.
We finally have solidify her middle name! It took a while… we wanted something Hawaiian, but even though it took 8 months we got it! I will do a post specifically on her full name, the meaning behind it and how we got it. 🙂
Until she comes we are soaking in just the two of us, the quite moments and really appreciating each other. I said it before, but I need to say it again. I am the luckiest woman in the world. Keloni is the perfect person for me and I just feel like my heart could explode with him. I love you so much Keloni.
Until next time!
