A Little Bit of Crazy

Today is one of those days where I'm in a serious need of a pick-me-up. To be honest, there is really not all that much that I can complain about in life at this point (well minus a 1k compressor problem that popped up and some other really petty things that just amount to mild annoyances) but for some reason I'm a little blue.

I think I'm just annoyed that I'm not getting done as much as I would like to due to both a lack of energy and motivation. At this point, it's an internal battle. I have a huge To Do list to knock out before our little guy arrives....I'd just prefer if I could be the overseer of that operation instead of the actual doer.

This past week has shown me that I truly am pregnant. You would think that would have hit me already since I've knocked out about 28 weeks of this thing, but it's been a really easy ride up until now.

I'm tired, my back hurts, I'm never comfortable, I don't have any energy, and I feel like a cow. Sounds like a case of pregnancy to me.

Michael keeps trying to encourage me by mentioning that I don't have all that much longer to go, but honestly that sends me into straight panic mode. What if he comes early and the nursery isn't done? My glider won't be in for another 11 weeks my due date. The whole birthing process sounds so completely scary to me that all I feel is an overwhelming sense of dread (I hate pain...who doesn't though, really?) My house isn't properly cleaned for a baby and I might be seen as some sort of unfit mother because my baseboards haven't been cleaned, or the carpet still needs another round of steam cleaning, or because the windows haven't been washed.

Do you see? I'm a crazy person.....who happens to be too exhausted and overwhelmed to do anything about it. AGH!


  1. You are not insane. You are pregnant! And honestly all the baby needs is love, food and a place to sleep...just like the rest of us:)

    In the meantime, enlist aide when you can!
    some suggestions:
    Invite friends over to assemble anything you need assembled...feed them, pizza or take-out or if you feel like cooking make them a favorite dish.

    Stop reading the pregnancy books, watching A Baby's Story or listening to labor drama Nobody has the same labor experience.

    Think positive thoughts of that beautiful, healthy baby in your arms. The calmer you are the more it soothes that little chickpea growing inside of you.

    If you can, have a cleaning service come in and give the place a good shine. I did this, it wasn't expensive and it was one less fingernail I had to chew :)

    Give your hubby a little extra TLC now. He's probably just as nervous as you are. Talk things out, quick to forgive each other :)

    Well, that's all from me

    Peace ~ Rene

    You're both going to be a fantastic Mommy and an awesome Daddy

  2. Yep, sounds like pregnancy to me. I am currently thinking the same way. But Rene gives great advice (which I am also stealing btw). We shouldn't be worrying, we should be enjoying the fact that we are each carrying a new life.
    Here's to some much deserved R&R

  3. Listen, you will DO GREAT!! just make a list, prioritize it and do just one thing at a time.

    one thing at a time.

    :) hang in there sister.


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
