My Miracle Morning #84

So we are getting closer to being done with this pregnancy. My belly has definitely has gotten bigger in the last couple days and when I walk I can feel baby’s head pressing on my pelvic floor. The only issue I am currently having is acid reflux. Baby loves to press her little feet into my stomach causing me heartburn and yesterday it even caused me to puke.

A is getting really excited about his upcoming birthday. He got his birthday present from us early, mostly because D felt up to going to the store with me to pick it up. A got a new bed. It’s a raised bed with a ladder so that he can use the space underneath for more play area, but the best part according to him is we also got him a playhouse cover for the bed that converts the whole bed into a really cool playhouse where you get to sleep in the attic. He also got to pick out his own bedding and of course, he picks green sheets and a bright orange with black triangles comforter. But the color combo actually works out and looks really good.

My nesting needs seem to be getting stronger. This last week I rearranged the kitchen and yesterday I super cleaned and organized A’s room after spending most the day making pocket pies out of all the leftovers in the fridge and baked cookies. I am hoping that the pocket pies will help keep the food spoilage down to almost zero by taking the little bits of leftovers that for some reason no one seems to want to eat and making them super convenient for lunches and dinners when I have zero interest in food. The zero interest in food happens at least a couple times a week now mostly because my digestion seems to have slowed down and the heartburn. That state of mind makes it really hard to cook. Thankfully A seems to love anything as long as it has cheese, pizza, or pie in the name.

My exercise today will be some yoga to relieve the pain in my hips and chasing two toddlers around.

My main goal today is to get some work in on a website that I have been building.

I hope you have a wonderful Monday!

My Miracle Morning #83


So I know I haven’t posted lately. I have been trying to get enough sleep. But I am almost 100% ready for this baby to come. I just have to pack our hospital bags and install the car seat base in our car. Yesterday I went out and bought everything I needed to create over 160 single person meals for the freezer, the I prepared them all. To say the least my back was hurting by the end of the day. But my estimate of cost is $1 per serving, though A eats only half servings and next time I will plan better and buy what I can at Costco in bulk. So my plan is to make up at least 2 main freezer dishes a week to keep our freezer stocked and by the time baby comes we should have a nice surplus to see us through the first few weeks after. This will be essential because when D cooks he has a tendency to ask way too many questions. So now all he has to do is remember to dump a bag into the crock pot in the morning and dinner is taken care of.

On the pregnancy front, things are looking up. My heartburn has disappeared almost like magic when I hit my 3rd trimester. So currently I am just dealing with being tired and having to wear my heavy duty belly band when I walk around town. Baby is very active and to top it off I have been experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions.

I have also finished all my cloth diapers and am working on making myself the ultimate diaper bag. I am also working on Christmas presents already so that I won’t have as much to do in the months following babies birth.

My exercise today will be yoga.

Today’s Affirmations:

  • I will be calm and rational when people ask for my attention.

I hope you have a wonderful day!
