33 Weeks of Prenatal Bliss

Ok so that is a load of crap. The only blissful thing is knowing that in a few short weeks I will be able to officially meet my baby girl and shower her with love, hugs and kisses. The rest of this is really for the birds. This is a pregnancy rant so read at your own risk!

I want my body back! Aside from being high-risk for multiple reasons, I also have developed carpal tunnel in both wrists. I am no longer enjoying being pregnant. Boo-hoo, I know. I try not to complain, I really do. People laughed at Tamar Braxton-Herbert for her shenanigans on the show Braxton Family Values, and yes sometimes she did the most, but I feel her pain 110 percent! I just try not to be THAT vocal about it. Until now. And this will be the first and last...hopefully.

My feet are no longer my feet. They are swollen fat piggy sausages LOL. My hands hurt all the time and also resemble some sort of sausage/wiener. Everyone always says "I hope you are getting plenty of sleep because when the baby comes you won't get any." I feel like I don't even know what sleep is anymore. IF I can find a comfortable position to sleep in, it is promptly disrupted by painful hands, restless crampy legs or 5 nightly needs to go pee. When do I sleep? Usually at my desk when I'm supposed to be working and someone calls my name and then I realize I have practically drooled on my keyboard. Sometimes my eyes are open. Scary. OH! And the profuse sweating. I feel like I'm sitting in a sauna most of the time. Which is why my electric/gas bill is through the roof. 6 weeks and 5 days to go. But who's counting?!

I am going to the doctor every 2 weeks now. This provides me a lot of comfort because I can make sure my little boogie is progressing the way that she should and is doing ok. My last appointment I felt bad afterwards though. My doctor asked me if I had any questions and I didn't. I never have questions. What am I supposed to ask? I have no clue! I feel like they should be telling me what I'm supposed to ask LOL. Or at least what I need to know. I mean this is my first time creating life. Next appointment I'm gonna bombard her with all sorts of randomness that will at least make me feel like I'm getting my insurance's worth.

I keep reminding myself that it is much easier to take care of her while she is still in there and that helps a lot!

I had plans to finish the nursery last weekend so that I could try and figure out how to do this thing called REST that everybody keeps talking about. But that didn't happened. A couple of weeks ago I got her closet organized and I'm proud of how neat it looks. I just hope it stays that way!

And Sunday evening I got the glider and ottoman put together. Now I just need someone to come and feng shui for me. Any takers?

Thank you for letting me rant! I feel better already!

Happy Day folks!


  1. Awwwww! Whoo whoo whoo! I don't know what to say but I hope it gets better! Love ya lots!

    1. Thanks Key. I'm just trying not to lose the last few marbles I have left!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
