This past week has been very exciting, and at the same time very challenging. I have not only gained about 30 pounds from all of this pregnancy, but I have been exhausted. I still have 2 months to go, and I’m enjoying every moment of my pregnancy. It is so weird to see how your body changes. People constantly saying, “OMG you have gained weight”, or trying to squeeze into clothes that you can no longer fit is very challenging. A lot to soak in sometimes, and as a pregnant woman, hormones going every which way.
The most important thing is that Ashton is growing, and healthy. He is 3 lb.s, and has a strong heart beat. His is so active as well!!! I love to feel him move from one side to another, or kick and punch me in the middle of the night. As annoying as it may sound, it really is the best feeling in the world. Just to know that he is moving makes me feel so confident in my pregnancy. After my miscarriage I have been overly sensitive with this one, and making sure I do everything right.
Now is the time for me to start settling down, and stop stressing. Today, I have so much to do, but I am enjoying sitting at home, laying in bed, drinking my hot chocolate, and just relaxing. I have a lot of grad school work to do, but it will get done. I am just enjoying this morning with Ashton, and everything else will fall into place.
