Ace had no fever all day yesterday after I posted. She might have been dealing with teeth but I’m still thinking virus. Who knows, I’m just glad she is better.

Aly experienced her first betrayal from a friend yesterday. My heart aches for her and this experience. I know that it is part of life but I still feel like she has some of the worst luck when it comes to friends. I am still praying that she finds a good genuine friend that she connects with. Finding one that knows how to honor boundries would be a good start!

I am almost 32weeks I think. I haven’t looked at my ticker lately but I think I am close. This means of course that I really need to order our birthing supplies. My midwife comes today so I will have to remember to ask her for the ordering information.

I am feeling very large and am having a hard time being an active mom. My energy is low and even though I have upped my iron I still feel non-plus about being a mom to 4 kiddos. Anytime I think about going to the park or getting out in the yard with the kids all I can think about is the protruding belly in front of me and how it makes everything a little more challenging to do. I am trying to remind myself that this is the last time I will experience the movements inside and the last time I will have a large belly that shows the world that I am carrying a new life. Still, I find the tv on more and my behind on the couch more often than I find myself living life with my kids.

This has taken me by surprise since the pregnancy has been the easiest of them all.

Maybe today we will make homemade playdough or something fun like that.

Wanna come play? Maybe your company would motivate my large pregnant self to engage in life!


Edited to add because I don’t want to forget…last night while on the couch Emi was snuggled up with me and she said “I love you mommy, you are my best mommy.”

  1. You know, I think you have to listen to what your body is telling you it needs. Rest! You are already giving so much of yourself and soon, you’ll be doing it all PLUS dealing with a newborn. Rest up as much as you possibly can now. The kids will be fine.

  2. What? Are you saying this is it for you? No more babies? You know I live vicariously through your blogsite! Dreaming of life with 5 little girls! I think I would be in heaven! (I said ‘I think’.) I could have dance school everyday! Play dolls on the couch! That doesn’t require too much energy! 😉

  3. aww HUGS to you and Ace!
    I’ve got Little Man home for the 2nd day in a row – we are off to the doc today as he will need a note for school at this point.  Hopefully the doc will say send him back on Monday so we can work on his solar system project all weekend LOL
    <~~~~baaaaaad momma!
    Love you

  4. It’s so, so hard to see our children betrayed by friends. It happened to my oldest with her very closest friend of 10 years. It was heartbreaking.Those little things like Emi said make life and motherhood and everything all worthwhile. They are precious.
