Sorry about last week. It was my sonís 8th birthday and other things were going on and the week was over when I realized I hadnít written in my journal. Now Week 23 is almost over, I need to get myself back on track. I feel that way about everything in my life.
For me it is easier if I have order in my house. My kids have chore charts and know what they have to get done and on what days. I have a basic chore chart of my own. I do laundry at certain times, I clean bathrooms on certain days, I even have an outdoor errand day. For some reason the last few weeks I donít care and canít get myself motivated to stay caught up. Which with a family this size means complete chaos!! I hate chaos!!
I was trying to figure out what was wrong. I have been thinking a lot about it. It was just a few weeks ago that my morning sickness slowed down and the fatigue wasnít so bad. All these great things happened, I made it past half way in the pregnancy, I look pregnant, I found out I was having a boy and now I am blah. I donít feel like there is anything to write about my pregnancy and I donít feel like doing the things that need to get done. With a tummy they all take such effort. My new theory is that I have finished all the milestones (Iíve heard the heartbeat, Iíve felt him kick, I know itís a boy) now before I have a cute baby in my arms I have to wait 17 more weeks.
Iím sure it is a phase and it will pass. In fact I was talking with a friend and she said this pregnancy should go pretty fast the next few months with it being the Holidays. She is probably right, but my waistline will probably grow just as fast!!
