Happy Thanksgiving!!! (29 Weeks Pregnant)
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and this year ranked up there with the best of them. We shared the special holiday with Marc's family in Florida. I love his parents and am so excited that our unborn child already has so many family members and friends that love him with all their hearts. He has no idea how lucky he is!
Marc told me, "Congratulations! You survived Thanksgiving. Not many turkeys made it through Thanksgiving!" I had told him how when my mom was pregnant, my dad called her Butterball at one point. So now I'm also getting compared to a butterball turkey....my mistake telling him that story. But I promise you I'm no turkey. ;)
Travelling was a bit more difficult than usual for me. I thought I was just getting so tired because maybe that is normal in the 3rd trimester. But my dizzy spells and fatigue were at an all time high, and my doctor called twice while I was away to tell me I was anemic again and to make sure I was taking iron pills. I felt like I could have slept through Thanksgiving week at the rate I was going. And I didn't want to take iron pills because of constipation. But now I seem to have it all figured out a week later. Lots of salads, fruit, and green drinks, and I'm taking the iron pill every other day instead of every day so I can go to the bathroom. Now I am feeling a little more energetic, but don't know how I'm going to manage getting on the airplane for Christmas.
Today I am 30 weeks pregnant and we are getting ready for our baby shower this weekend. My mom is flying in on Sat. and I'm getting everything ready for the festivities. This house used to be stuck in the 90's with grey carpets and grey walls from floor to ceiling. I've been warming it up with earth tones and making it a cozy place to live. We have hung curtains, painted walls, rearranged the living room, added throw rugs and plants, and hung artwork. It's looking better and better all the time. Turning a bachelor pad into a family home is a process, but I'm knocking it out one step at a time. With the high ceilings and all the natural light that comes in, it is a great palette to work with and I've been having so much fun making these improvements! It is becoming home sweet home!!!
Now Marc is installing a washer/dryer so it is my cue to leave before they solicit any more of my help.
