I’m here, I’m here! We traveled to Raleigh for the week of Thanksgiving, and work has been almost too busy since arriving back in Atlanta. I feel like life has been a whirlwind of family visits, childbirth classes, and home organizing over the last two weeks. At work we’re expanding on our floor and I had to pack up my cube on Friday and unpack it again today in my new location. I had some help with a couple heavy things, but for the most part I was unpacking and repacking drawers, shelves, and my desk. It was in all honesty exhausting.
I didn’t want it to be. I want to be as energetic as my non-pregnant self, but I feel lethargy creeping up on me like it did during the first trimester. At home after work today I went fishing in the refrigerator for a plate of cheese my shower hostesses (yes! I have to tell you all about that too!) saved for me yesterday. I couldn’t find it. Anywhere. I looked through the fridge twice and started bawling. For fifteen minutes. Red faced, makeup streaking down my cheeks, full on bawling. We had family in town all weekend for the shower and, while it was wonderful, I need to catch up on my rest this week.
Other than being tired and needing to get a little extra rest (hmm — maybe I should hop in bed after posting this) I have continued to feel good. Hubby and I are truly enjoying our childbirth class, and I have been practicing my homework. I can’t wait to tell you more about that too. What I like most about the class is that it covers lots of different techniques — lamaze, bradley, hypnobirthing, and more. I felt that was the best fit for me as I wasn’t sure WHAT would really relax me the most during labor (I mean, how could I know?) I think this will give me lots of coping techniques and options!
Hope you are all having a good week!
