For weeks and weeks my pregnancy was interfering with my regular life. Now my regular life is interfering with my pregnancy. Not in any kind of bad way, just in a, my brain is in a million other places.
First, we're looking for a house. Over the weekend we found one we liked and we placed an offer this week. I'll post more about it if we get it, but it's sort of unlikely. At least we're playing.
Next, there were some layoffs at my company on Friday. I lost a good friend and I also lost a coworker that was incredibly difficult to work with. All in all, it's kind of a wash, but it was a hectic day and gave me things to think about.
Thirdly, I have multiple art projects I'm working on right now. Two scrapbooks for bachelorette parties I went to. And then 3 shirts I'm making for a team competition at the end of May at Disneyland. These are all projects that are super fun and exciting, but also time consuming.
I think, I'm pretty sure, I'm feeling movement. It started late last week. Then yesterday I felt like I was being tickled from the inside. Specifically while I had some loud music playing it felt like something was wiggling around inside of me. Exciting!
I need more maternity clothes. Specifically, maternity shirts. I have a bunch, but I don't do laundry frequently enough. Sure, maybe this has a simple solution, but I don't LIKE doing laundry any more often than I already do it, so I want my solution to be more clothing. I'm wary of buying stuff online and the stores around me really don't have that many options. Target, despite popular belief, does not really have a very large maternity section. I'm not looking for yoga pants or more tank tops, I just need more short and long sleeved shirts. The basics, you know. Motherhood Maternity has some good stuff, but it is expensive if it hasn't gone on sale. Also, I actually have more than I will currently wear, but it's stuff that will look really cute in a couple of months and looks like a tent now. It's hard game.
I'm doing better with food. Smells are still making me nauseous, but I haven't actually gotten sick in what seems like a while. It may only be a week or even less, but time is being measured with much more attention now. I'm also getting to the store to buy good food more often. And if we get the new house, there will be a grocery store 3 minutes away!
Ok, that's my update.
