|Four Weeks to Fifteen Weeks|
I'm really enjoying having a blogging Sunday, I'm hoping I can keep this up! A cup of coffee and a keyboard to pen my thoughts!
For this week's post I decided to dive into my pregnancy so far, not only because it's great way to look back and relive the memories but I know I'm not the only first time mommy out there that feels completely clueless and has that constant nagging thought: "Uh-oh what did I get myself into?! Am I really going to know what to do?!" First off this is common for all mommies to be and even second time mommies!
But when I really start to think about all I have to say on just sixteen weeks into my pregnancy I realized how gynormous of a post that could be. So I'll be breaking it down into sections. So for week one of my Prego Story So Far I'm gonna talk about my great support system, something that is key to a sane and happy pregnancy! (Even though I know not all woman may get that but in my opinion at least!)
Luckily for me I have an amazing support system and no shortage of people I can reach out to if I don't know if something is normal or not. My husband has naturally been Heaven sent (as he usually is) but now that we are expecting I swear the little quirks that make me love him even more are developing even more. One that particularly sticks out in my mind is that I am no longer allowed to carry the vacuum up or down the stairs.
Our vacuum currently lives in our downstairs closet even though we only have carpet on the upper level of the house but we don't have a closet that works to keep it upstairs. But each week I make sure to vacuum, sweep and mop the house (even though I should probably do that more like twice a week living with a corgi who explodes fur constantly) but he has decided that it is too risky for me to carry the vacuum up and down the stairs so I am now barred from carrying it up or down. However every morning and evening I have to lift a tank of corgi (37lbs of adorable fluff) in and out of the bed. In a sense I understand as I am a clutz and pregnancy seems to have only added to that lol but I still think its silly but completely endearing. So while I give him a hard time about it it really makes me deliriously happy that he cares as much as he does.
My parents & in-laws have also been amazing! My Dad and Gregory are custom building all of Baby Blob's (yes, Baby DelFavero has been dubbed Baby Blob since our first ultrasound because they really did look like a blob!) furniture. I really luck out having such a handy hubby & daddy because of this Blob's room can be completely redone without having to spend a small fortune! My Mom while can normally drive me up a wall (admit it its a mother/daughter thing and totally natural) has been really cool & I've found us talking more and getting along a lot better. I feel like the pregnancy has made me realize how important family is. Greg's parents have been amazing as well! I love seeing how excited they get seeing pictures of Blob and anything that has to do with their future grandchild. This child is definitely not going to be short on the love!
Next up is my Aunt Maggie who I talk to every day and ramble on about anything and everything which more than likely has been repeated (I have a bad habit of telling someone the same story at least three times, I can't be the only one who does that?!) but doesn't complain and even comes up with great suggestions or ideas we can do for Blob.
Last but certainly not least would be Jess my dear friend who is also the author of Sparkles & Crafts who has seriously been a rock / on my speed dial the entire time! Any strange feeling, weird thought or just plain exciting thing that has come up I've gone straight to her! She's a mommy to an adorable one year old who you just want to eat and just an all around awesome woman!
That's it for this week's post! I think next week I'll talk about discovering we were pregnant!
