They say every pregnancy is different.
They also say every pregnancy gets more difficult with age.
Those statements are both true for me, but I know that it may not be so for others.
As I am nearing the end of my third pregnancy, it feels as if this one went faster, but more difficult. Perhaps because I was working the entire time? And although I was working, I’m grateful that I was not on my feet or didn’t even have to step out of the house, matter of fact. Working from home while pregnant has been a blessing in many ways and I’m grateful I was able to do so.
There’s also this thing with pregnancy brain because I can’t seem to remember the purpose of this blog post after many interruptions by the kiddos.
I think I just wanted to let you all know that I’m still here. It has been difficult to keep up with blogging, working, family life, and pregnancy. Also, Arizona has finally cooled off–I always seem to be in a bad mood in those long six months of never ending dry heat, now top if off with pregnancy hormones.
This week has been better than the last few ones. A spur of energy came over me and I was even able to join my Fit Mama’s fitness club on this beautiful fall morning.
I obviously won’t be as active until after baby but it felt nice to get “out” there.
I find that this pregnancy has been the most challenging, especially because I already have two energetic toddlers to chase after everyday.
Each day, I’m grateful for the moments I get to spend with them; playing, reading, singing, and laughing. I know that soon, things will get a little bit hectic for a while and my attention will be divided between three kids.
I hear the hardest transition is from two to three kids. Learning to balance life with three kids sounds scary, but we are ready for the challenge. At this point, we don’t have a choice. Baby is coming soon! The journey has been exciting and nerve-wracking, but holding my baby girl in my arms…that, I can hardly wait for.
So if you were wondering where I’ve been, this is it: I’ve been too pregnant to blog.
Hopefully I will get back to my weekly blogging routine soon.
