It's so crazy to believe I am 30 weeks along already with baby number four!
I wanted to give you guys a quick update on how it is going with this pregnancy. I know with Instagram and social media, it can look so glamorous and perfect but that is hardly the case. I love one moms bio on her IG feed saying "I only show you what I want you to see". This seriously struck a cord with me because it's so true. In a way my social media is a bit of an escape and a way to "glamorize" my life. I guess there are times where my life might be a bit glam but its mostly, carpool lanes in sweat pants and racing off to the next thing on the schedule. It actually seems like I am either looking like a homeless crazy lady, or I'm dressed to the nines with a full face of makeup. lol
For this pregnancy I am trying with all my might to soak it up. Which seems like a challenge with how hectic our lives are. I wouldn't change anything except for more time together, which I feel like we can never have enough of. One thing that has taken us longer than any other pregnancy is picking a name for baby. We STILL don't have a name picked for sure but we are getting really close. Richard laughs and says maybe we should wait until he is born and then choose. I respond with my laser stare, saying "you have got to be joking!" I am not the type of person to leave something like that up in the air!
My body is definitely starting to feel the gravity of this sixth pregnancy (including my two miscarriages). I have an almost "rash like" varicose vein maze on my right leg that is constantly throbbing. I am supposed to be wearing compression socks all the time but lets be real, mama still wants to rock a cute short lace dress and not wear knee high socks with it! My sister in law had the same thing on both of her legs and they went away after she delivered so I am praying mine will disappear as well. Another crazy thing is SLEEP or lack there of. In between having to get up and pee and my wild hormonal dreams, that help me sleep like a wild cat in water, AND the kids having ear infections and bad dreams lets just say I try and sneak in as many naps as possible. Other than that baby is healthy and happy kicking up a storm and I am in good health. So really, I could not ask for more!
I also wanted to let you guys know that I will be sharing on my YouTube channel, all the baby essentials that we have gotten for baby so make sure and check that out and subscribe!
