These past few weeks have been great for baby Robilotto, growing and moving, but for Mommy, it has been full of sleep deprivation! I am fully prepared for my lack of sleep once the baby arrives, but I had no idea how sleep deprived I would be DURING pregnancy...omg! The bigger my belly gets the worse my sleep gets. My nights are full of tossing and turning, trying to get comfortable in one place long enough to fall asleep, then if and when I do finally fall asleep, it's only to dream weird prego dreams that keep me from actually sleeping. Every morning has been rough and I'm so tired of being tired. I try to catch up on the weekend with a nap if I can, but that doesn't always fit in the schedule. Aaron has been great at comforting me and helping me stay positive, but you know when you're feeling like crap and someone tries to cheer you up and you just don't want to be...yea, that's me. I usually force a smile and pout as I slowly roll out of bed, but on the inside I'm rolling my eyes and growling! lol...sorry, hunny. Let's see, what else...well, I haven't woken up in the middle of the night to pee, but I have had to get up to drink water from feeling so dehydrated. Doesn't seem to matter how much water I drink throughout the day, I still wake up feeling like I just had a handful of sand...yuck! I finally got feel baby kicks at 21 weeks and have been feeling them sporadically ever since, such a cool feeling! My day at work is hectic and busy, so I don't feel much then, but when I get home and finally put my feet up I can feel her move around. Even Aaron had been able to feel her move too.
I couldn't be more thankful for having only 2 more days of work before the Thanksgiving break...these kids are wearing me out! I really looking forward to doing a whole lot of NOTHING. I want to get crafty and start working on things for the baby's room and definitely nap as much as possible, but that's about it. We're still working on agreeing on baby's name. I have picked out the one I like and i'm pretty much set with it, just waiting on Aaron to give in. I have been saying her name out loud when I speak to him and everytime I do, he likes to respond sarcastically, "who's that?" Thanks hun! Don't worry, he will eventually give him ;)
The pictures will tell the rest of the last few weeks events...enjoy! See you again soon...next up...3rd trimester!!
|One of my favorite kiddos, Hayleigh. She has been my dance student as a 6th, 7th, and now an 8th grader. I took her with me to the Westfield vs Klein Collins football game to see the drill team perform their "thriller" routine, just before Halloween.|
|23 weeks Baby Bump...growing and growing! I'm pretty much "all belly".|
|Aaron and I drove to Dallas for my cousin's wedding. I was in denial that I actually needed or could even wear a maternity dress until I finally found this one at Motherhood Maternity.|
