Merfbaby is 33 weeks!
It’s getting closer and closer!
How I’m Feeling: So, last week was a little cray-cray. Thus, why this post is coming a week late. I’m tried, but more from work than pregnancy. I feel good, pregnant-wise. I haven’t blogged about it much recently but I work in the Film/Tv Industry. Both Merfman and I do. I currently work for a writer/showrunner and we just started back on the 5th Season of Community. Cool? Totally. Stressful? Heck yes. We did 2 months of work in a few days. It was nutty, but we did it. I didn’t get as much sleep as I should have, but we made it. Things are calming down now which I’m thankful for.
Belly/Weight: SO preggers. I’m bumping into desks and things all the time. Sorry, Merfbaby. Weight is still normal. I look back at older photos of me and it’s funny to see me without this belly.
Life Changes: Work changes. I just recently moved from one office to a new one on the studio lot, where we’ll be for the next few months. I don’t know how it’s all going to work when Merfbaby arrives, but we’ll figure it out. If you had bet me a million dollars that I would be back here working on Community, you would be a million dollars richer. I NEVER thought this would happen.
Movement: He’s head down now, and pushing hard on the left side of my pelvis. It’s a really funny feeling. He’s pushing to get lower and lower.
Sleep: Didn’t get much sleep last week, but what I did get was awesome! I slept hard! I’m having to prop my tummy up with a pillow since I wake up some mornings and the top of my abs are sore.
Cravings: No time for cravings! Merfman did take me to In N Out on Saturday for lunch and I was a very happy girl. I even got a Chocolate Shake :)
Exercise: Lots of walking and going up and down the stairs. I’ve been on my feet most of the week at work, not much time spent at my desk. No formal “exercise” but lots of moving around.
Favorite Pregnancy Moment this week: My Mommy to Bee Shower :) My mom and her close friend threw me an adorable shower with a bee theme. It was perfect and so much fun. So many close friends and family came and were SO generous to Merfbaby. I feel much more prepared having lots of baby things on hand now.
On My Mind: A million things. I woke up several times in the middle of the night last week thinking about work, and not Merfbaby. The changes at work have added a new element to maternity leave, but it’ll work out. It always does, right? I don’t have an exact plan on how it’s all going to go, but I’m not worrying about it too much just yet.
