|26 weeks and 6 days|
So, to follow up with my last post... WE FOUND A CONDO! Whew. As soon as we found it and decided on it everything just fell into place and a week and 3 days after seeing it we moved in! Crazy that it all happened so fast! The worst part was saying goodbye to the ward and young women I have been with for a year and a half. I will miss them... BUT, I am so excited to be back in Mesa!
I just want to let everyone out there know who does not already know... If you are pregnant, and you are moving, don't. Just don't. Or, have your mom with you when you do so she can remind you to sit down and rest.
It's crazy but my body knows that I am pregnant but sometimes my mind forgets and I convince myself that I can pick up this box or that box no matter how much it weights. Or that standing up for hours is totally fine.
Today I will tell you... It is NOT fine. (I realize that I have been doing a lot of complaining but I can only use the "I'm pregnant" excuse for three more months. And I am milking it.) Sadly, I hardly did the amount of moving that my family did and especially Steven. He basically packed up our condo by himself. This morning he sent me an email that said, "I'm am really not too sore today!" Are you kidding me? My pregnant feet are swollen and standing on them makes me wince, and my back is... on fire? I am not sure how to describe it. Amazing how something like moving would really not have effected me before, now makes me feel like I got run over by a car. It's not fair. I think I am a little bit in denial that my body is any different. But, as you can see in the picture above, some things are definitely changing.
Over the last weekend my loving husband made me go to Victoria Secret to pick up my first (much needed) bra since being pregnant. Embarrassing. I am happy to report that I am now a full C cup. What? I feel so accomplished. Also, I am pleased to announce that I have FINALLY grown a booty. Yes, it is true. And my mother is so proud.
I will have pictures of our new place as soon as I get chance. But it won't be tonight. I have an appointment with the couch that I cannot miss.
*Thanks family for helping us move! You made it a much more pleasant process for us.
