Today has been one of those days, the one where I’m just asking myself all kinds of questions.
I wonder how do you fit a second child into your family? How will I ever get quiet time again? What are we going to do about sleeping arrangements? Will Baby Boy be able to sleep on a mattress on his own? How do other people do it?? Will I ever be ready? What about travel? How long will it take me to get out of the house with a new baby? How much food in the freezer is enough? How do I really prepare for a second child? Am I doing enough to prepare for labor and birth? Well I lose myself completely? What about projects I want to work on? Will anything ever get done??
I am hot all the time, air conditioning only helps a little bit, I would just rather stay in the water. Yes, water can be a bit hard to come by when you don’t live close to a water source that you can physically submerge in, while also avoiding chlorine. Plus, it’s probably a bit uncouth to be in the backyard spraying myself down with the water hose half the day. And, Hun would likely not be pleased with the increased water bill.
I can tell my energy is waning, my tolerance and patience for just about everything is lower than normal, and this week has been terribly hot again!
As usual, I’m carrying pretty low. This can be pretty uncomfortable because it’s really difficult to do anything straight on. Hun and I actually think I may even be carrying lower than last pregnancy. I don’t know, what do you think?
But, really, I’m full of questions and not enough answers to suit me. I like answers. I like knowing and I like a bit of order and routine. Seemingly at once, all of these things are in flux. Also, Baby Boy is getting up when I do now, which affects my ability to have quiet time in the morning or get work done.
The kids’ room still needs work, though we’ll hopefully be able to really make progress in the next month or so.
That room is really starting to wear on me. Besides, I’m feeling the pressure in more ways than one and that makes me wonder even more.
So, like I said, I’m full of questions, but without enough answers to satisfy me.
How did you figure out fitting in another child to your family? Am I losing it here, please be honest. Did your 3rd trimester start off rough?
