I figure it has been a bit since my last pregnancy update. I’ll let you in on a few things that are going on around here. I’m starting to feel human again, well as human as one can feel when growing a life knowing that someone else is living in you, some days sucking your very life-force. Honestly some days my belly looks like some out of the Alien movies with all the moving and shifting. Hey that means the baby is growing a moving though so it’s a good thing that I just have to live with …. again. But hey I can eat and get around and some days I’m even adventurous enough to leave my house with my children. ( yeah me!)

With feeling better I’m starting to eat better too! Two weeks ago on our camping trip the two little ones and I both came down with a lovely little intestinal virus. Not awesome but that is a whole other story that I should get around to writing. 😉 Though since I have recovered from that ( which took about 4 days) I seem to be able to eat a bit more. Which is good, seeing as the boys clap and rewards me with thumbs up and pats on the back when I finish a dinner smaller than the toddlers plate. *shame* Yeah they all out eat me now and I’m supposed to be supporting another life. But hey when baby sweet pea says the there is enough food in the belly, I don’t argue anymore. See I do learn my lessons , eventually. With being able to eat that means that I finally get to put on some weight. Which is good when you are pregnant and been losing weight. While I am being aware of my pregnancy gains I know what my body has done in the past with the boys and I just watch the food I eat and the weight will do what it will. I’m able to eat more food that are considered healthy so that is a huge bonus. Most of the food aversions seem to have left which makes eating and making dinner so much easier.

Now my belly has been growing even with the weight loss. So the stretching is happening. You think with this being the fourth baby that my body would be as stretched as it is going to get. Wrong! this one seem to be loving the sideways stretch hips butt and belly are where all the weight is going. So maternity clothes still suck ass because they just don’t seem to fit me. Though as much as I hate laundry I really dislike the idea of the rest of the world seeing me naked, so we make do with clothes when we go out. Then there is a lot of comfy pants and t-shirt at home. You know what is also driving my bonkers this pregnancy, my BRA! It is an evil contraption that hates my breasts. I’m sure of it. I figure it will have to be replaced because we are just not getting along any more. The moment I get home I can’t get upstairs to take it off fast enough. It only gets worn when I have to leave the house and see people. I have a thing , it’s odd, but I feel uncomfortable around other people without a bra on. Totally my own personal special issue.
Well here we are at 25 weeks. and while I’m still expecting to have this little sweet pea a week early, we are getting to the final countdown. The stuff that needs to get done in the next few weeks keeps growing. Clean the garage out so the van can go in, which involves a fair amount of purging crap, um… junk, er.. our lovely possessions that we no longer have use for our even know why we have. Cleaning and er… finding the baby clothes ( which are in the garage with the rest of the stuff, from our move a year ago. * shame* ) Prepping for Christmas and all that come with that, food , gifts, decorations, parties, gatherings and what not. We need to get any birth supplies we need so that we are prepared and not caught off guard. So time is ticking and stuff need to get done. Wish me luck. Let hope for some energy in the third trimester so we can get it all done on top of the regular day to day stuff, of being a homeschooling mom and housewife.
