I am sorry I have been neglecting my blog so badly. I have great excuses, along with being very pregnant and trying to survive the CONTINUING OPPRESIVE HEAT, we are closing on the house in a week and moving. We just got back from the beach yesterday and visiting my family in Delaware. They gave me plenty of presents which Joe and I were so happy to receive, since we haven't had our first baby shower yet and we don't have that much stuff.
A few weeks ago things were rough with the pregnancy. I found out that I was anemic and that I guess was the cause of my rapid heart beating and shortness of breath that I thought was a panic attack or anxiety. I know I have been reporting all about my aches and pains but these were really scary because I thought something may have been wrong with my heart, or breathing or blood pressure. After receiving my blood results, I promptly went out and got an iron supplement and added it to the prenatal vitamins (3 times a day) and calcium, DHA and magnesium supplements I am already taking! My growing belly and ENORMOUS breasts have been a little overwhelming too, my regular clothes are definitely a thing of the past, only a few select items that are very stretchy or long are still able to make it into everyday rotation. And some of my maternity clothes are cute but the belly bands are cumbersome and just make me more hot and sweaty. Its like have a big floppy thick panty hose at the top of your pants.
So I am trying to breathe and make it through the days with my rapidly changing body and my raging hormones.
Right now the house is a sea of boxes and we still have a ton to pack up. I am looking forward to being in our new home, to having our new couch delievered. And to be able to start working on the nursery.
I have about 4 more months to go until the big day. Counting the weeks of your pregnancy is prettty crazy becaues you are really counting 40 weeks from start to finish which is really more like 10 months and that is a very loooooonnnnngg time!
To all my blogger friends please keep me and Joe and little Chloe Niccole in your prayers we have quite a few weeks to get through. And then for the third and final trimester, DEEEEP BREAAATTHSS!!
