Home, Pregnancy

Home is the best R&R

IMG_3129I’ve been going non-stop lately it feels like.  I actually don’t even plan a lot on the weekends (or during the week for that matter, unless it revolves around food), but with Rob’s schedule and the rush of wanting to get stuff done around the house before baby comes, I think I just needed a day. So I took one the other week and stayed home with Jace. Creating life an’t easy. And this time around I’ve encountered some new things. Like sharp pains in my sides and below the belly, cramping, hip pain (it’s almost like my hips feel bruised!) and some weird back end issues that shouldn’t be happening because I’m actually drinking a ton of water this time (what!?). It’s so hard to be my happy self when things start to weigh down on me, literally. We had our hospital tour recently, too, which just makes me wish it was April 4th already so I could be in there, getting it done! But at the end of the day, when I watch Jace run around the house in his blankie superman cape, or ask me if my butt still hurts, or when Rob runs me a epsom salt bath and puts the heated blanket over my belly, all is well in the world again. I’m so dang lucky to have this little family of mine and for the every day moments of life. I can’t express how wonderful it feels to be in our home together, just hanging out, just us. It’s really been my sanctuary during this pregnancy. I absolutely crave it when I’m not here. Something about a Nespresso in the morning, reading a book in bed while it rains (just finished Still Alice – heart breaking!), hanging in our front room on our $40 couch from Goodwill, cutting fresh roses from our bushes, or cuddling up to watch Annie (Jace loves it, ha), is where my zen is. The best kind of R&R for my changing body. Well, thanks for listening. I’ll just be here stretching more to get this baby grown .. and opening the windows so I can smell the orange blossoms that are already out! ;)
