Officially hit the mark where I can’t fit any of my clothes. I guess you can say I did pretty good, lasted until I hit 7 months. That’s pretty darn good if you ask me. Third time around and I guess my weight wants to be good to me, especially since I just became comfortable after Sparkle… 4 years later. Next week I have my glucose test scheduled. Usually, I would be okay, but since I’m borderline diabetic, I’m a bit nervous.
For the most part, I still watch my carb intake, limit sugar ( I’ve craved sugar so much) and I continue to drink greens on the go. It helps keep that waistline in check and balances the weekly milkshakes I treat myself too. Chic Fil A milkshake is the truth, I can taste it now as I type this….tomorrow can’t come fast enough.
As we get near the end of this pregnancy, I’m totally enjoying it. Learning to watch what I say and not complain about the expected or even unexpected changes for that matter. Just going along for the ride and preparing for this little one as best I can. Most days, I ask God to Order my steps! If that means resting to stop myself from being overwhelmed, I do just that.
During my days of rest, I usually just read or hang with the kids, go thrifting for an hour or two ( yes I consider that resting LOL ) or I write a list of things I need to do and things I need to get for the baby, myself and the kids. Once I’m done, I share them with Stephen and Mom. This way, I can get some help on things and not feel alone. I no longer turn down help, I would be a fool to do that.
What are some things you do to help yourself prepare without feeling so overwhelmed?
