I have had at least three people tell me how small I am for 18 weeks within the last week or so. So now Corey and I are totally paranoid about how much weight I am gaining and if I am in fact, the right size for how far along I am. My doctor said everything looked great at the last appointment and baby was measuring right where he/she (see how I almost slipped up there?) should be for the time. So, I would really feel a whole lot better if people would just mind their business.
For many weeks of my pregnancy I've been pretty emotional and would cry at the drop of a hat. Recently, I've been getting irrationally angry for no real reason. Not necessarily at people, but just angry at situations. For example, I pulled into my driveway the other day and the way Corey had parked left me so little room to get out of my car. Never mind the half way finished patio furniture awaiting a final coat of stain and polyurethane that has been sitting in my space inside the garage for the past two, er, three months. I was just steaming by the time I got my things out of the car at the driveway. Why couldn't it just be six tiny inches wider?!
I feel so guilty for sweet Riley who has been stuck inside for what feels like ever since it has been raining nonstop in Charlotte lately. It seems like the only time it isn't raining is when we are at work and he's stuck inside anyway by himself. Poor guy. Here's a little photo for your viewing pleasure of him snuggling the Snuggle pregnancy pillow. He does this each morning when I get in the shower.
I finally updated my phone and actually have enough memory on my new one for it to work properly. So happy to have essential apps like Yelp, Google Maps, Uber, and Joss and Main functioning again. Life really is so much easier when you have access to Google Maps.
The house that almost was (then wasn't) has also been on my mind a lot. Corey and I have looked at so many houses (dozens), bid on three, won only one bid, then lost a house three weeks before closing following its inspections. At this point, I now want to stay in our current home for all eternity. And I believe that is what we will be doing for the immediate future, at least until baby is here and we are adjusted and my emotions are more in control. What a heart-wrenching process house shopping is in this market.
And that's all for today, friends. Happy Tuesday!
