I did notice the tiredness kicking in again. Our family has had a super busy month which hasn't really helped. I'm starting to feel like I could go to bed at 7:30 PM and sleep in until 10 AM. Sleep is also getting harder and harder. I always seem to wake up on my back throughout the night, which is a no-no, so I'm fighting myself to sleep on my side.
I don't even want to talk about my weight gain this time...it's definitely more than with Jenna. I am trying to eat good, but that doesn't seem to matter. I am bummed that I will just have to work extra hard after the baby is born to get back down. Hopefully my treadmill will prove useful this winter!
I learned a very important lesson this weekend...very pregnant women should not take toddlers to weddings by themselves! I wasn't exactly by myself, but Jeremy was in the wedding party so he had wedding duties to attend to while I was carting a toddler AND my unborn fetus from hotel to wedding, from wedding to reception, from reception back to hotel...it was exhausting.
It was so much easier taking Jenna places before she learned to crawl or walk. Now she screams to get down and move around and doesn't understand when to sit still or when mommy needs to carry her. She wanted me to walk her all around during the wedding and she was PISSED when she saw daddy coming down that isle and he did not stop to pick her up. Then she decided to have a meltdown mid-dinner in which mommy and baby packed up and left the reception early. I didn't even get to taste the cake! Do you know how disappointing that is for a pregnant woman, to miss dessert?!!
Needless to say, for the next wedding we go to, I'm either bringing some backup helpers such as Grandma, or I'm leaving Miss J at home!
