Have you ever?

*had a day off in the middle of the week?  It outright stinks to go back to work the next day.  Especially when that day is Friday.   You feel like you're in a fog and just don't want to be there.   But that could be because you...

*had an awful night's sleep in which you tried multiple sleeping positions and/or surfaces?  Last night I crawled into bed with my body pillow per usual around 10:00 ish.  I slept soundly till about 1:30 when I woke up with the worse right hip pain.  I hadn't had this yet.  It was annoying enough to make me get up and do a standing hamstring stretch in the dark, and then fumble in the closet for my heating pad.  Then I needed a snack.  And of course a bathroom stop.  This little cycle repeated a couple of times until I decided to move to the living room and roll out the "couch bed."  Also, miss thing decided she should also get up for play time... I stayed there until neighborhood dogs started barking then went back to the bedroom.  On and off sleep till I got up for work.  Fun, let me tell you.

*been really productive despite a crappy night's sleep and low energy?  I got a good amount of stuff done at work today in 7 hours and was able to knock a few items off my to-do list.

*dropped a glass bowl full of your lunch in the office kitchen?  I can now say I have.  That's how tired and out of it I felt today.  I had my spaghetti/chicken/veggie mixture all ready to place in the microwave when I just dropped. the. bowl.  Big glass bowl pieces scattered and food was all over the floor.  I felt pretty dumb.  Luckily, I had some extra to heat up.

*bought 5 boxes of cereal at one time?  I ran in Albertsons on the way home from work to get a Red Box movie.  Right when I walked in, I was greeted by a display of breakfast items with yellow signs displaying a SALE price for each when you bought 5.  While supplies lasted of course.  I love cereal.  I could eat it multiple times per day and sometimes do.  I bought 3 flavors of Quaker Oatmeal Squares, 1 box of Life, and 1 box of Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch.  I'm in heaven.

*been super stoked about meeting the little life inside of you whose movements are growing increasingly stronger?  It's so cool to me to watch her poke around and feel her flip-flop.  Ryan and I both agree that my belly seems to look just a little different every night.  Read: bigger. ha.

*eaten pecan pie gelato?  I did yesterday and I want some more.  Central Market has pecan pie AND pumpkin flavored gelato...sooo good. 

It's no cereal though. :->

My little baby boy wakes up every night around 3:00am for "play time!" It's cute at first and then I'm like, ok baby, go back to sleep so mommy can sleep! ;)

Feeling and seeing the baby move inside of you is the best (fortunately, Makayla never woke me up moving around...but my full bladder did quite often)! I'm looking forward to being able to experience baby #2's movement. I have felt him/her move, but it's still very soft. My doctor said she could tell he/she was moving around a lot at my last appointment when she was checking the heartbeat. And I'm so sorry about your lunch mishap at work. A small bowl slipped out of my hand the other day when I was trying to put it in the dishwasher, and shattered into pieces on the floor. Gotta love the clumsy pregnancy hands!!!
