This Pregnancy Thing ...

I suppose I need to get used to giving up the joys in my life for another... it's hard though.

We went to Disney for Thanksgiving week, Ron's parents and nieces and my parents and niece and nephew were all together in a villa. It was awesome to have us all together - it was really fun to see the kids experience Disney for the first time! And um, they certainly do get cranky when they are tired! Ha.

What wasn't so fun was when everyone had their glass of wine at night and I had my water. When everyone went on Space Mountain or any other FUN ride, and I had to sit on the sidelines. I got to ride things like the Dumbo ride. Sigh. It truly got depressing.

Then we went on a cruise with Ron's family. Fantastic, right? We were both a little sick (all the kids!!!). My bathing suit doesn't fit anymore, ruling out the new water slide. No wine with dinner like the rest of the adults at the table and no beer at the sports bar while watching Football on Thanksgiving. It was an entirely different experience, and much much much less fun. I tried to remember that I was away and life was good but overall it made me sad and frustrated. I have never been more anxious for a vacation to end as I was for this one to be over! Sad but true. I was VERY happy to be back home with the boys...

In other news, I have decided that all of our pillows need washing. I apparently need some tennis balls to put in the dryer and some woolite for the washing phase. I am kinda excited for this process because I think I am nesting or something and want things CLEAN.

I picked out paint colors for the master bedroom and the babies room today. Well, idea's, nothing definite! I guess there are perks to being preggers, I can't paint so Ron gets all that fun!

Anywho!!! I hope you all had wonderful Thanksgivings!! I am still trying to catch up...

Yeah, some things don't go well with pregnancy... Or little children either for that matter. Best to just enjoy the uniqueness of this time, knowing that there will be other trips in your future. For now, happy nesting!

At least you were warm and didn't have to do the dishes... (It was in the 30s here.)

You will have your reward when you get your little darling!! Do you know
what sex the baby is?

HAHA Little darling... That made me chuckle for some reason. We find out the sex at the Ultrasound next week, if the baby cooperates!

Agreed that does sound like a sad vacation. Sorry you didn't get to enjoy it more. Now that vacation is done, you'll have lots of time to nest. Try to enjoy the process!

I guess I was looking at what I was missing out on rather than the fun and cool settings around me, I tend to do that sometimes... BUT I dooooo miss my wine!!!

Join countless others who "carry the burden" of pregnancy. At least you're taking care of yourself and the baby. You're going to be a great mother!! Hang in there, kiddo!

Geez.... that was depressing just reading it. But as they say, "this too shall pass".
comment by jjoohhnn on Nov 26, 2012 6:23 PM ()
Yeah, that's kind of what I mean, depressing enough to read without living it.
reply by jjoohhnn on Nov 26, 2012 6:31 PM ()
Sorry, it was a sad trip for me...
reply by kristilyn3 on Nov 26, 2012 6:29 PM ()
