A Day in the Life of a Mommy...

Want to know why I haven't been blogging lately? Two reasons: Because I'm pregnant and it's the summer.

That is ALL that is going on with my life right now. I'm concentrating on getting this child that's growing inside of me to a healthy weight and getting him or her OUT. That's me at about 7.5 months. Seven and a half months!!! It's ridiculous how big I'm getting. Let me remind you that I'm only 4'11''.

This pregnancy has worn me out, more than I thought it would. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I spent the first three or so month hunched over a toilet, the next three months in hot and crowded New York City with a two hour commute to and from work, and then the last three months trying to figure out how to balance pregnancy with being a college student. (I had to sit sideways in my seat for the last month because I was too big to fit in the desk. Nice, right?)

But this pregnancy makes that one look like a walk in the park. Every day I wake up and it's like I'm a contestant in the game show, "Which Pregnancy Discomfort Do You Have Today?" It's always something - backache, my feet hurt, feeling like I'm going to vomit, pain in my hip, shooting pains up my thigh. But the bonus is that now I have a toddler to chase after. With my first pregnancy, if I didn't feel well, I simply waddled over to the couch and sat down.

Now? I get to sit down after eight, which is when the princess goes to sleep. Until then, the princess needs to be taken care of, which usually falls under my responsibility, since her father takes the morning shift. Plus, she seems to prefer my service to her father's.

That leaves me with nothing to blog about. Yes, there have been a few situations in the past couple weeks that warranted a blog post, but the biggest thing on my mind these days is welcoming the newest addition to my family and until that happens, everything else is just....blah.

So thanks for sticking around long enough to listen to me vent. I needed that. Thanks.

Gotta love those belly pictures!

Yeah, I remember those days of having one baby in the belly and chasing after the other.

It does get easier -- and some days harder -- like today, when I screamed at my daughter for crying so loudly in the park and not wanting to roller skate.

So glad for calmness...

Awwww! I love your belly! I remeber those days!

My first boy was born in August and I remember just feeling SUPER HUGE! And very HOT!

It will be okay!

You sound exactly like my wife did the day before she gave birth (4 weeks ahead of schedule). I can't even try to imagine what you're going thru so I'll end here.

Like your blog...

You look great! I wish you well in your prego state! Bless your heart, pregnant in the Summer. I did that 2 times and it was not the most pleasant thing! LOL!

Wow, I remember the days of pregnancy. They weren't that long ago. I only have one so I was able to rest up a bit. Congratulations and good luck! I am visiting by way of AA Dad.
