It’s beginning to get a whole lot chilly…


Burr. Burr. Burr. Winter is def. coming. And with it is coming the common cold. Lucky me. For the last six days I have been battling with a terrible cold, that doesn’t want to leave me. Grrr…. I have tried plenty of sleep, cough drops, meds, honey water, trying to sweat it out. And nada. The minute I keep thinking I’m getting better, it comes back just a little more meaner. Anywho, this is how I’m starting my 31 week of pregnancy.

On the positive note. I am now in the single digit waiting period. 🙂 How did we get here so fast!? I keep on getting asked if I am anxious and the answer is no. Truthfully, i am scared, nervous, and feel completely unprepared. Gosh, there is so much to do and how I will do it all, while maintaining calm and non-stressed, still puzzles me. Here is my list of things to do before baby comes.

  • write birthing plan ASAP!
  • Get a new car, cause my PathFinder is not cutting it anymore. Crawling through my passengers seat is not amusing,  and the noises it makes are starting to become concerning. So, if anyone knows of a good used car/mini-van please let me know! Or if anyone has some expertise on buying a car and can provide their expertise, I need your help.
  • Finish stenciling and decorating baby’s walls. Paint door.
  • Clean carpet upstairs
  • Get vacuum fixed or get a new one
  • Go to Ikea to get shelves, dresser and nightstand. Someone wanna come with?
  • Organize and declutter my kitchen and bedroom.
  • Take baby’s car seat to fire station to get inspected

And these are just a few of the things I need to do to get ready for baby, not to mention, do the daily tasks and get ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. How do I  manage to relax and take it easy with all this!? I dunno. Someone let me know if you have any ideas.

Anyways, so baby continues growing and moving. I am looking forward to meeting this baby and finding out if it is my daughter or son. I hope that I can be the mom that God wants me to be. And that when I do make mistakes that I may learn from them and not take it out on myself. I tend to do that. And I pray that God may provide me a supportive network of people I can turn to when times get tough.

Thanks so much for those of you keeping me and baby in your thoughts and prayers. They mean so much. May God continue to bless you abundantly, as this holiday season takes off.

Much Love,
