I feel as if I am now coming out of my cave of the first trimester. I am actually 18 weeks along today, and I’ve been feeling pretty good for a few weeks. I just looked at how long it has been since I last blogged, and it pretty much correlates with being sick and pregnant. It is actually an exciting time of feeling better along with the anticipation of spring. We have an ultrasound on the 22nd of March, and we are excited to hopefully find out the gender of this newest little one.
When I am sick Kirk is very gracious, but I start to feel really guilty for having to rely on him to do things like grocery shopping and putting kids to bed when he is already running his own business. I start to feel lazy, and I can sense that my inconsistency with the kids is really throwing things out of whack. I think that’s why it is so nice to be feeling better. I start to feel down because I’m not accomplishing much. Today, it was fun to work on painting a wall in the girls’ room and think about what color we want to paint in the living room instead of lying on the couch thinking of all the things that need to be done.
