Life Lately


Hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day weekend! Mine was fun, my "first" one as a mother. The farmer's market in our neighborhood reopened for spring/summer, just in time for peony season! Ben gave me a bouquet for Mother's Day, I went to a baby shower, and my father-in-law made a huge feast for all the mothers in Ben's family. I didn't get to see my own mom in person (just a phone call), but I'm looking forward to seeing my family in about a month at my sister's high school graduation (!!). In fact, we have lots of things coming up--I feel like this last stretch of pregnancy is going to fly by. And we really are getting close! On Sunday, I'll be 28 weeks along, officially in the third trimester. It feels like it too...I've noticed myself getting way more tired over the last week or so. My brain still has energy, but my body is like, "nope." I've never been a nap person, but I just started taking lunchtime naps, as well as sleeping in later in the mornings. Those are some of the main times that I used to work on blog posts though, so warning--posts may be fewer and farther between from now on. We'll see what I can manage. But I can forgive my body for being so lame, because I know the reason it's so exhausted is that it's growing a little human!

27 weeks

How have you been lately??

    Glad you had a lovely day! These last weeks will go fast. Rest as needed. Soon your little one will schedule your sleep :)! Hope to see you in June.

    Glad you had a happy Mother's Day, it's nice to experience it and next year will be great and different again. Try to rest now while you can. You'll probably get a nesting sensation as you get closer, suddenly you'll be cleaning and organizing and feel mildly crazy and ocd : )

      Thanks, Jen! Hope you had a good one too. And yes, next year will be even more fun for sure! I'm definitely trying to sleep in as much as possible now, while I still can. :) I've heard about that nesting/cleaning instinct at the end! I'm not there yet...the house is still a mess, haha.
