Friday Frags

First of all, thank you all so much for your sweet, encouraging comments, e-mails, facebook messages, texts etc. after I published my post on the weekend. It was a trying, trying weekend, but honestly? The support I got from everyone helped so much. So many of your words brought me to tears and as much as I would never, ever wish these kinds of days on another mama, it certainly does help knowing we’re not alone. Once again I’m reminded of the blessing that this blog community is to my life.

On that note, God is so faithful and He knew that I was running on empty. So, on Tuesday night, Evalyn slept from 7pm-7:30 am without a peep and then we proceeded to have the best day we have had in a long, long time together on Wednesday. We spent the morning playing at a kid’s center, she ate good meals for the first time in a while, had a long, restful nap and then we did some shopping. We played with toys, played games, played outside and laughed. By the time I put her to bed that night, I had a full Mama heart again. My spirit was refreshed. Which was good because that night? She didn’t sleep so well and the whineys started again Thursday morning. But it’s okay – because I feel like my tank has been refuelled.

My husband has been a rock over the past few weeks. A lot has been going on around here. And he has been so helpful and supportive of me. On the weekend, when Evalyn was at her worst, he somehow managed to pull of the being two places at once trick at more than one time. As in, he took her outside with him while he was still managing to get some work done in his shop. He was so hands on and I know he made many sacrifices over the last week or so so that he could ensure that he was helping me.

I had my glucose screening test a few weeks ago and found out at my last midwife appointment that I failed so I had to go back last week for the 2 hour fasting test to see if I have gestational diabetes. Thankfully, I found out today that my test results came back looking just fine and I’m in the clear.

~~~

This baby is all up in my biz-niz. I cannot bend over, breathe, or sit on the couch comfortably. The pokes and jabs are crazy. I don’t remember the baby’s movement to be this uncomfortable this early when I was pregnant with Evalyn. Ev says that’s because it’s a boy. I’m still not convinced.

~~~

I realized earlier this week that Easter is in less than two weeks and Evalyn didn’t have any shoes for with her dress (her dress that is going to be way too big, I might add…). Don’t worry. We fixed the problem.

~~~

I am officially counting down the weeks until I’m done work. It’s 4.5 in case you were wondering. As long as everything goes as planned (which it very well may not due to a strike that’s happening on campus right now…). Grr.

~~~

I want pizza.

~~~

It should have bacon, mushrooms, onions, green peppers and black olives on it.

~~~

Happy Friday.

Good to know things are on the upswing again for you. I meant to comment on your post over the weekend and I didn't get a chance to....pregnancy brain, I guess? Glad to hear you don't have gestational--I had it last time, but this time, I am in the clear! Hang in there....prayers always for you. :)

I always lose my train of thought on what I want to comment on with posts like these (didn't you say the same thing to me last week?!)--but, SO glad you don't have gestational diabetes! yayyyyyyy! and I just realized we have no easter shoes for Eme either unless it's warm enough for sandals, and I bet it won't be. CRAP. I bet they're all sold out now.

I am just catching up on blogs... and I am so sorry you had been having such a hard time with teething. I HATE teething. The munchking is just now getting her I teeth at 2.5 and it has been no fun at all. She was so late on all of her teeth coming it. This was nice since she had so many other issues when she was a baby, but it really just dragged things out. I am hoping we get through the rest of her teeth quickly! I actually skipped the sugar drink test for the gestational diabetes so I am currently having to test my blood sugar levels for a week to make sure that I am okay... I think I am in the clear. Whew!
