No, I’ve never participated in the ever-popular What I Ate Wednesday, but I did make myself chuckle with this slight twist on the original. [Judging by Jen’s hilarious personality, I doubt she’ll mind.]
If my pregnancy-related posts aren’t your cup of tea, you might just want to come back later. I didn’t intentionally make this a pregnancy post, but it happened. Welcome to my life.
What’s Overwhelming Me Wednesday!
The nursery. It’s stupid, I know. The rational part of my brain understands that the baby won’t care if it’s all done and put together when he/she arrives, but damn it, I want it all done and put together before the baby arrives. This will not happen, by the way, as we’re waiting to add certain decor until we know the gender. Which won’t happen until after the baby arrives.
My hospital bag. Don’t judge me yet – I haven’t put together a hospital bag, or even come close. Again, the
microscopic rational part of my brain knows I have three months before I’ll need said hospital bag, but I like to be prepared. I’ve pinned approximately 17 blog posts about what I will and won’t need. Reader input is welcome.
My body. I know that my growing body equates to a growing baby. I know this is good and amazing. [Do I have to keep referencing the tiny, rational part of my brain?] But, goddamn, I’m getting huge. I’ve caught side glances of myself in the mirror, and I’m slightly terrified. There are days when I do feel cute, but there are also days when I feel like I should just go ahead and burn all of my pre-pregnancy clothes now.
Sleeping. I’m someone who is used to functioning off 8 – 9 hours of sleep each night. Ha ha ha ha LOLOLOL I know that’s laughable because I’m pregnant and about to birth a human who will ravage my sleep patterns, but man, sleeping is not enjoyable right now. It’s impossible to get comfortable [like, I get sore from laying on my side. WTF?!] and every time I try to roll over, I realize I have to pee.
Childcare. I could write an entire post on the anxiety-producing monster that is childcare, but I’ll wait on that. For now, I’ll simply say that the who, what, when, where, and HOW [hello, $$$] of childcare is sincerely keeping me up at night.
Is anything overwhelming you?
