Holy Moly, It’s Almost October

30 Sep

I’ve been slacking on journaling, but I really do have great reasons.

  1. We finally have a closing date on the house we put an offer in on – this Friday! It’s been a dramatic rollercoaster and I really don’t ever want to buy another one. LOL. There are so many moving parts … it’s just crazy. I will be glad when it’s all done, we have the keys, and we can move in. Except, I’m not looking forward to moving all our junk out of the multi-level, insane stair maze condo. It was such a nightmare moving in. Moving out is not going to be a picnic.
  2. I’m 15 weeks and some change. I’ve started to feel some moments … usually around 3 in the morning. It’s the weirdest sensation. I can’t even really describe it. We find out the baby’s gender in November! So exciting. I’ve had some not so super pregnancy side effects like (continued) sleeplessness, super itchiness at night, and bloody noses, but you know what, nothing so terrible that I can’t deal with it (so far). I wanted this so badly, so I’m embracing it.
  3. Weddings. We know lots of people getting married. We’re traveling to my husband’s sister’s wedding next week. Pregnant lady on a plane! Oh, and I am starting to show some. I’m sure there will be unsolicited belly rubs, which I am not a fan of. I don’t like people touching me.
  4. Work is keeping me busy. I’m already freaking out a little about maternity leave because we have a huge, huge trade show that I will not be able to go to since it’s 2.5 weeks away from my due date.

Somehow I managed to lose about 7 pounds during the first trimester. No idea how that happened. Must be the healthy eats, walks, and yoga. I’m sure it’ll come back, but my doctor was pleased that I’m not a gaining machine since I am a larger lady to begin with … story of my life. Always tall, always built like a linebacker even at my fittest. He did make me feel so much better when he said if he was concerned about my weight, he’d tell me. I am not-so-secretly terrified of gestational diabetes. That’s also why I’ve been trying to eat as healthy as possible. It does help that this kid hates ice cream. That makes it a little easier. I also want to maintain my healthy lifestyle after the baby comes. I don’t want PCOS to rule my life and I certainly don’t want to have ovarian drilling done all the time. It’s not fun.
