Week 16
~ The Roller Coaster

Hello everyone,

This week has been a little crazy. I feel like I have been on some kind of insane roller coaster ride with my emotions. One moment I'm crying because my clothes aren't fitting quite right and the next moment I'm joking around with someone and then I go back to crying. I feel a little out of it. My husband kept on asking me what he could do and I would say nothing or I don't know. I wasn't very much help. I am usually very patient with just about everyone. Although this week, I just don't seem to have as much. I think my hormones are just a little out of whack. I have told my children a few times that I'm on vacation and they need to ask somebody else. I also have been sooooooo tired this week. It hits me like a wave. I will be fine one minute and exhausted the next. I was anemic during my pregnancy with my son Dominic, and felt tired like I do now. Maybe, my iron is low. I'll talk to my doctor about it.

When I was a kid there was a Calgon commercial that always had a lady taking a bubble bath and she would shout out "Calgon, take me away." I thought it was stupid. However, even worse is my mom would shout out the same thing when she was frustrated with us kids fighting or arguing or just being kids. All of a sudden we would hear from the kitchen or some room in the house, "Calgon, take me away!" I would roll my eyes. It would make us stop fighting temporarily. It wasn't until after I had kids of my own that I understood that she wasn't so weird after all. Being a mom has its joys and frustrations and sometimes we do need to get away, especially if we are hormonal. Maybe, that's what I needed all week; a bubble bath.

Anyhow on the upside, I sometimes feel a little flutter of movement. Nothing intense or strong, just a little flutter. It makes me excited, one of my favorite parts of being pregnant is feeling the baby move. It is so amazing. I can't wait until I can feel the baby kick and turn and flip. Bring on the somersaults little one, mamma wants to feel you move.

I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday. I am looking forward to hearing the baby's heart beat. All those little things are very important and really brighten up my day.

I'll talk to you soon,
~ Barbara
