Week 25
~ Pregnancy hormones, a little out of whack

Hello Everyone,

I have been tired, but good. I have also been a little moody. Pregnancy hormones, I'm sure. I have been feeling overwhelmed at times; life has its moments. I feel stressed about finding our daughter a name. I have spent hours on end searching. I just am a little stressed about everything right now. My children have been pretty good, but when I am feeling like this even the normal things seem to be a lot. My husband is still looking for a more stable career opportunity. I feel the need for stability right now and am having a hard time with all the little things that aren't as stable as I would like them to be. My husband and I were suppose to go look at cribs and our plans got canceled. Little things like that aren't a big deal, but at that moment I felt like crying. I just am having one of those weeks. I know it will get better. God is good and He will take care of all of the little and big things that seem so important right now.

I went to the doctor's on Thursday. My husband went with me and finally met my doctor. I was glad; I like it when he goes to my appointments with me. I got my lab papers to take my glucose test and another ultrasound. Everything is good with the baby. She is growing nicely and staying active. Although, I don't think she is as active as my last two boys. That might be a good thing; they can be exhausting. They are both very active and keep going and going and going, like the energizer bunny. When the doctor checked her heartbeat he was able to get it right away. This was the first time she was so cooperative. Usually she moves around so much it takes a little while. He also measured me and said that I was measuring a little big. That doesn't surprise me considering how big my babies are.

I have been exercising more regularly. I have been walking 4 1/2 to 5 miles at a time. I would like to increase that a little. I really hope the exercise helps me to stay a little more healthy and help my weight gain to stay under control. I will probably have to decrease the amount of walking when I get further along, but I should be able to stay where I am at for a month or so.

The other night my sister stopped by and said hello. I don't get a lot of grown-up conversation without constant interruptions. and it was good for me. Everyone else was asleep when she stopped by. Usually, all my kids run to her and yell, 'auntie Lynne is here'. They really love their auntie. I think it is wonderful that they love her so much.

Well, that's about it for this week. I will talk to you all again soon.

Have a great day,
~ Barbara
