Yesterday I was just not myself. I was the whiney, pity-party table for one, overtired version of myself. I woke up on the grumpy side of the bed. I knew it wasn’t going to be my day as soon as my alarm went off. I made myself get out of bed and get ready for work. Unfortunately after drying my hair and doing make-up I still looked like death. Huge purple bags under my eyes, no color in my face. It was not pretty.
Of course then getting dressed was a task. I whined to Josh that it’s just no fun getting dressed anymore because I felt HUGE and I don’t have enough options. I was also convinced that I now have the dreaded mom butt. I made my pouty self make breakfast and head off to work…to get stuck in traffic.
By the time I got to work I just felt like crap. My attitude was bad, I looked bad, my head hurt and so did my stomach. Luckily I was able to get a ton of work done, but by a quarter to three I needed to go home. I got home, poured myself some Gatorade and went straight to the couch.
I had been having Braxton Hicks contractions off and on all day and was feeling super crampy, it wasn’t painful, just annoying. I didn’t want to be the girl who cried wolf since I couldn’t decide if it was round ligament cramping, gas, or just uncomfortable baby movements. I determined that I was probably dehydrated because by the time I finished my third bottle of water and glass of Gatorade the cramping and tightening was gone. Just to be safe I skipped the gym and opted for relaxation in my sweatpants. After all, I had worked out 6 out of the last 7 days. The workouts at the end of the week had been cut short by side stitches, but I was able to get in at least 40 mints of cardio at a time. By the end of the night my headache and stomach ache were better.
Today I woke up in a much better mood. I feel better and definitely look better. Still wasn’t excited about getting dressed today, but I made it work. Tomorrow we have our maternity photo shoot. So excited to have some new pictures of Josh and I…Peanut too! Now I just have to figure out what to wear.
