Tired - emotionally and physically

Baby girl is doing great! Mommy, not so much. I'm healthy, she's healthy and that's all I should care about...and truthfully, it's all I really do.

But then there's life on top of that - E working late ALL THE TIME. Not like 7pm 10pm late. A parental visit gone bad, BH contractions if I walk down the hall to the bathroom, feeling like I'm gaining too much weight, home renovations, 90+ degree weather and a 34th b-day which took a turn for the worse.

I'm OK in the end....just emotionally and physically exhausted. No idea how I'll make it 11 more weeks. I am just trying to put one foot in front of the other these days.  11 more weeks seems like a lot on one hand and then it seems like nothing all at once. This is the last pregnancy for sure sure.. I'll never have this again. I am soo grateful and lucky that we are where we are. But I'm tired too - competing emotions are difficult. 

On a happy note, I had a flash yesterday of what it might be like to raise a girl. I was clipping papers to a folder for review and thought...oh I wondering if our little gal will wear clips in her hair? I'll be doing hair every morning before school! Hhaha what a simple but funny thought. I fix C's hair in the morning, but I just wet it with a spray bottle and brush. There will be ponytails, pigtails, clips, bows and braids. I'd better start practicing!

27 weeks

13 more weeks to go! Wow, that seems both really long and really short. I remember being 13 weeks pregnant and being thrilled to finally be in the second trimester. Now I'm on the verge of the 3rd.

Renovations are underway to move C into his big boy room and make room for this little girl coming our way. I'm excited to see these rooms come together as it will really feel like our house is FULL. What a great feeling.
