I am thinking I am going to turn off as much as I can and take a couple of mental health days. If this shirt I found on Zazzle explains anything it should explain how I feel right now! I am just increasingly overwhelmed with things around the house and with this upcoming baby.
The appraisal went well and the only thing we need to fix before she comes back out is a small paint chip on the second story outside. Thank goodness that is over because it had Michael all in a tizzy worrying about passing it. Every weekend he has been working on something construction wise and leaving me the mess. I personally think he is training me for the baby.
His Dad would come over and they would work on some project that would span across two stories and involved drywall dust. There would be tools in every room of the house along with this awful dust. And each week I would go around the house after the weekend was over and pick them all up and put them in one spot. They got a lot accomplished but goodness! I stopped running the Dyson on the stairs because I would get it clean only to have them drag drywall or tile board or something over it again. *note to self* I need a hand held sweeper for the stairs.
This category of my life is a mess. I hate me OB, as you already know, and I wanted to switch to someone closer to our new home. Well I spent a few days researching people who take my insurance and who would take me this far along. I found one!! Then I was transferring the paperwork and we realized Michael’s insurance doesn’t cover the hospital that the single OBGYN delivers at! So now I am starting over again and I am almost 33 weeks pregnant.
This is nearly non existent because this preggo isn’t as limber as she once was. We are down to boxes of stuff that I would just fine donating because they are those things that you rarely use anyways. Not to mention the back pain that comes with any sort of physical movement.
I am finally to the whole wanting to cry all of the time stage. I have mysteriously cried once this whole time and almost a second time which I have to say is decent. I am not sure if it is the hormones with the overwhelming feeling from everything but good grief it’s like I am holding them back all of the time. I am not a crier either so this is a painful part of this whole process for me. Oh and did I mention- I am the meanest person in the world right now. If I open my mouth or even type something it is probably not nice. Holy cow!
Umm… doesn’t exist??!! Michael has been focusing on construction things and all I want to do is start my nursery! I hate that the baby could come at any moment and nothing is started. All of the nursery things just aren’t a priority for Michael right now but if he waits much longer I am going to do them all without him and he is going to be one sad Daddy!
The silliest thing to me is that I just want to put in an additional shelf to have two rows of hanging clothes. He wants to build a shelving unit! While I appreciate what he is suggesting I just don’t think there is the time to do something like that and have everything put away before the baby comes.
I pulled the compromise card and told him he isn’t working on the dining room floor like he thinks he is. He worked on that shower for 3 weeks and now he is going to give me what I want… the nursery. Once the nursery is done him and his Dad and do their project of trying to repair the giant dog urine spots. I tell him all of the time that I would complain less if he just gave me what I wanted if it is baby related. 🙂
My Maternity Photos:
The first person I was going to have take them never got back with me so I decided I am not going to wait any longer and picked another person. It actually happens to be my teacher from last semester too! But now our schedule is wacky and by the time I get my photos I will be a cow instead of the cute preggo.
This weekend Michael is on call for a big work project and has to go in Saturday and Sunday. Our first shower is on Sunday too. The next weekend is our second shower and maybe maternity photos?? The third weekend is our house warming party and the fourth weekend is probably going to be his diaper party so we don’t have it on the 4th of July weekend! That will put us with plans up to 35 weeks…. yuck.
I will probably feel better once I get the OB thing straightened out because that is a pretty big issue to have looming over my head. Then I will feel even better once the nursery is done and things are just in order for the baby to arrive.
I am sure I am going to be spending a lot of free time writing thank you cards too since Michael doesn’t write them. For the wedding I wrote out all of them and made him lick them all because he didn’t help me. It is going to be the same thing.
