Yesterday morning I broke down and gave the husband permission to get a window air conditioner for the downstairs. He had been wanting to pick one up for a while, but I was reluctant. I figured we would only have a few really warm days, and then we’d be fine. A month later, I had to give in!
I felt like a complete wreck Saturday morning. My stomach was feeling a little off, I was having hot flashes even with the A/C on upstairs, I felt miserable in my maternity clothes that are just becoming too small, and I had to go into work for a couple hours (again!). Throw my crazy pregnancy hormones on top of all that, and I turned into a bit of a sobbing mess.
Thankfully, I didn’t have wacky hormone-induced mood swings in the first or second trimesters. I’ve really only had a handful of little breakdown moments where I feel so overwhelmed and flustered and just need to cry it out a little.
I was really hoping that I would be pretty relaxed during my last month of pregnancy, but I’ve also found that I am way too eager and anxious to meet our baby and everyday for the last week or so, I am wishing that the baby would come NOW. I go to sleep and think, “Maybe it will be tonight!” and wake up thinking, “Well, maybe I’ll go into labor at work today…” Obviously, it hasn’t happened yet.
My due date is less than 2 weeks away, but I could go up to 2 weeks overdue before the doctors may induce if needed. So, I could be waiting for almost 4 more weeks.
I am going crazy!!
Today was a slightly better day. I have pictures of my breakfast (pancakes) and a really refreshing green monster (which was downed following a nice, long walk) and a little family get-together for birthday cake this evening (my birthday is on Tuesday, the 17th). I also have pictures of my birthday present from Keith, which I have been meaning to reveal.
However, my camera cord for the laptop is currently MIA (which means it’s probably in a really obvious spot that I have somehow ignored), so you will just have to wait a little longer!!
I am off to bed! I had a horrible night’s sleep last night (I was up from 3:30am until 5:30 before I could fall back asleep!), and I probably have to work tomorrow, since there are no signs that baby’s arrival will be this evening.
Hope you all had a fun, relaxing weekend!! 🙂
