Happy April Fool’s Day! Can’t believe it’s already April, I love it!
Yesterday was spring break day #2 for my sisters and their families. We headed up north again to take advantage of the 80* day. Luckily, it was a bit cloudy and windy so a day at the park was perfect!
My sister Leah even had a few kites for the kids to share. J was in heaven and ran his little heart out. Nothing like the last day of March to fly some kites.
Oh and of course a bump pic was taken when there’s people there to take it for me=) 21 weeks
Speaking of pregnancy, lately I have felt the roller coaster of hormones. Usually I feel pretty normal and like myself, but every once in a while I’ll have a day where I just feel down. I feel uncomfortable, huge, but mostly just sad. It makes me really frustrated. I prayed for this pregnancy for a LONG time. I hoped, dreamed, and had a lot of tears for this little miracle. So on days like that, here’s how I choose to deal with it.
The very first thing I do is think of all the things I’m grateful for. Number one being that I’m pregnant, I wanted this. The list goes on and on, there’s so much to be grateful for.
Next, I remind myself how it’s all worth it. Holding that sweet baby in your arms for the first time is incredible. Introducing the baby to her dad and brother and everyone that prayed for her will be the best.
Finally, I take time for myself. Working out, taking a hot bath, or just reading in bed help me to reflect and put my life back into perspective. It’s crazy how much those things help me. Often my ‘bad’ days are ones that I didn’t workout, and ate kinda crappy. When you treat your body well, it’s amazing how it affects the rest of your life.
So here’s to a better day. I hope your Wednesday is wonderful!
what’s your fav way to relax?
